Specs for the next BlackBerry leak; DTEK60 to feature a fingerprint scanner?
BlackBerry recently released the DTEK50, which it calls "the world’s most secure Android smartphone." Named after the DTEK security app that debuted with the BlackBerry Priv, the latest  'Berry is actually a rebranded Alcatel Idol 4 with a Convenience Key on the right side of the device. Today, a web page that should not have been made available to the public, reveals that the next BlackBerry, the DTEK60, is on the way.

The site, which has a URL with an extension that reads 'donotpublish.html,' includes the specs of the DTEK60. If legit, this model will be the first BlackBerry ever to feature a fingerprint scanner. The rest of the specs include a 5.5-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. The screen will feature intuitive gesture based navigation and will be all touch (no physical QWERTY). A Snapdragon 820 chipset is under the hood with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. 4GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage.

A 21MP camera with auto-focus adorns the back of the phone, while a front-facing 8MP fixed-focus camera handles selfies and video chats. The 3000mAh battery will include Quick Charge 3.0. Of course, Android will be pre-installed.

While the DTEK50 is, as previously mentioned, a rebranded Alcatel Idol 4, there is talk that the DTEK60 will be a revised version of the unannounced TCL 950. The latter has been certified by TENAA, and its specs as leaked on GFXBench match what we expect for the DTEK60. This might disappoint some who were hoping for a more innovative model with a physical QWERTY. But apparently, sales of the BlackBerry Priv have not been strong enough for the company to continue in that vein.
