New BlackBerry DTEK60 photos reveal a fingerprint scanner, curved sides
Not many months after releasing the mid-range DTEK50, BlackBerry is now getting ready to introduce a brand new Android smartphone. Apparently called BlackBerry DTEK60, the new handset should become BlackBerry's third Android-based device, after the Priv and the aforementioned DTEK50.

Spotted earlier today in a low-res image, the BlackBerry DTEK60 can now be seen in a series of press photos that show all of its sides. Compared to the DTEK50, the DTEK60 has a more refined design, but the two devices are obviously not that different, as both are manufactured by TCL (which also makes Alcatel phones).

The DTEK60 has slightly curved edges (both on the front, and the rear), and is a high-end smartphone. According to a previous report, the device sports a 5.5-inch Quad HD (1440 x 2560 pixels) display, and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor. Other features should include 4 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory, a 21 MP rear camera, 8 MP front-facing camera, and a 3000 mAh battery. Interestingly, the DTEK60 seems to be BlackBerry's first smartphone to offer a fingerprint sensor: you can see the sensor on the back, just below the main camera.

It's said that the BlackBerry DTEK60 will be released in Canada on October 11 for $699 CAD (about $530 USD). We won't be surprised if the handset is launched in the US at about the same time. Interested?
