The TCL 950, the phone that the BlackBerry DTEK60 will be based on, has been officially unveiled
Looking at the specs of the TCL 950, there are many interesting points to highlight. Starting with the processing power, the phone is based on a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset paired with 4GB of RAM, which is the most processing power you can get on a phone unless you buy the Apple iPhone 7. The TCL 950 comes with 64GB of onboard storage, but a hybrid microSD card slot is there to help just in case users need more storage.
The display is a 5.5-inch AMOLED unit running at a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels. Sure, it's not the 1440 by 2560 (QHD) pixel resolution that most current-gen flagships sport, but the crispness should be enough for most users and there are also battery life advantages to consider. TCL says that the display can reach a maximum brightness of 500 nits, which should suffice for outdoor legibility.
Other specs for the TCL 950 include a fingerprint sensor located on the back (just below the primary camera), stereo speakers, as well as a multi-function key that users can customize to their own liking.
The TCL 950 will be available in either Silver or Gold, but, at the moment, there's no word on pricing or release date.
At this point, we're not sure if the TCL 950 will ever make it to the US. However, we're very confident that the BlackBerry DTEK60, which will be the same phone but with BlackBerry branding and possibly a different Android implementation, will definitely be made available to US customers.
