BlackBerry was earlier reported to be working on three new Android smartphones. The first one in the series was launched in the form of DTEK 50 few months back and now we are already looking its successor.

While BlackBerry has reported to be working on its flagship smartphone codenamed Argon, we haven’t really seen much leak on that front. Today’s leak, however, gives us a better picture of what to expect from the Canadian smartphone maker.

According to CrackBerry, BlackBerry’s next Android handset will be successor to DTEK50 and may be based on Alcatel Idol Pro 4 or TCL 950 smartphone. BlackBerry is rebranding some of the well specced smartphones from TCL or Alcatel to have a heads up in the market. The leak hints at 5.5-inch or 5.2-inch scratch resistant display with a Quad HD resolution of 2560 x 1440 pixels. The smartphone will again be a full touch device like the DTEK 50. BlackBerry maybe preserving the keyboard for its own device.

BlackBerry DTEK60 is reportedly powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset coupled with 4GB RAM and 32GB flash storage. There is 3000mAh non-removable battery with USB-C port for charging.

The CrackBerry report also indicates 21MP rear camera and an 8MP fixed-focus front camera. There is even a fingerprint scanner along with a convenience key.

However, the top selling point here would be the secure implementation of Android. BlackBerry has been advertising DTEK50 and its Priv handsets as the most secure Android smartphones yet and the next DTEK device could well become the most secure of them all with latest security patches and support from BlackBerry Enterprise Security suite.
