Blackberry Back With “World’s Most Secure Android Smartphone”
As reported the other day, Canadian tech firm BlackBerry have revealed the first of a trio of new devices.
Powered by Android 6.0 and overlaid with BlackBerry’s own suite of privacy and security features, the DTEK50 boasts a 5.2-inch HD screen and octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor with 3GBs of RAM to back it up.
Essentially a re-branded Alcatel Idol 4, the big sell for BlackBerry here is the claim that it’s “the world’s most secure Android smartphone.”
BlackBerry are promising rapid security patches and additional layered encryption features for the phone, including their DTEK app which will users to automatically monitor their OS and alerts you when functions are being used without your knowledge.
At an affordable US RRP of $229, the price doesn’t hurt either.
Time will tell if it makes a difference for the battered and bruised brand, once a paragon of enterprise-level tech.
