This could be BlackBerry's upcoming flagship, the DTEK60 "Argon"

Evan Blass, the original smartphone leakster, has just Tweeted our clearest look yet at the upcoming BlackBerry DTEK60.
The impending launch of the BlackBerry DTEK60 is not a secret at this point. In fact, BlackBerry itself leaked the specs of the handset on its official website last week. And that's before counting a myriad of leaks; just yesterday, the handset was spotted getting its certifications from the FCC and the Wi-Fi Alliance.
The phone can be seen in what appears to be a leaked promotional image. Here's the same photo with a focus on the handset itself (sorry, that's all the detail we get for now):
At a quick glance, it looks like the BlackBerry DTEK60 comes with curved side edges, just like the BlackBerry Priv. However, this detail cannot be confirmed at this point.
The BlackBerry DTEK60 specs listed last week on the manufacturer's official website are all premium stuff. This includes a 5.5-inch display running at a resolution of 1440 by 2560 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC paired with 4GB of RAM, 32GB of onboard storage, a fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C, and a 3,000mAh battery. In the imaging department, the DTEK60 will come equipped with a 21MP primary sensor on the back and a 8MP selfie shooter on the front.
What do you guys think, will BlackBerry's upcoming smartphone come with dual curved edges?

Can't wait to see what BlackBerry has in store! Dual-Edge screens, hopefully.

I really hope BlackBerry can pull it together. The DTEK50 did really bad. I thought for sure with a midrange pricing would help them out. I think they ruined it by going with Alcatel phones. The majority of people that buy BlackBerry are some what tech savy. They no longer buy it because of the name. If those same people know that you are just rebranding some cheap Alcatel phones....well cmon man. Know your market Chen. Get that s**t together. Gather all your s**t. All of it. And get it all together. Cmon guys mistakes after mistakes.....get that s**t together!!!!!!!!

Tech savvy meaning they know as far as all touch devices are concerned software is more important than hardware? BlackBerry fans generally aren't gamers or selfie takers. Dtek50 I a fleet device and a darn good one at that.

Curved glass edges would be a nice addition, especially if it comes with the productivity edge like the PRIV. The more I hear about DTEK60, the more intrigued I am about it. Seems like it would make a great addition to my smartphone collection. Hopefully, we'll hear more about it during the earnings call this week.

I doubt it, considering it's a rebranded TCL 950, with some revisions and extra features added. Especially if BlackBerry is following the same pricing scheme as they did with the DTEK50. I sincerely doubt it will be priced above $500, and that's pushing it. I think it'll be more like $450.

I don't think it'll be that much but I am betting it will be more expensive than the reskinned phone that is. I mean the Priv itself was overpriced and it didn't really bring much to the table other than just being an android phone with blackberry features.

This cannot cost more than $500 and that is a BlackBerry price based on their name not specs. But if I want to spend in that range I will probably wait for Lenovo Phab 2 Pro Tango.

It must have a Schneider Kreuznach Camera and BlackBerry have to make its own Add ones like moto modes.

Can something really die if it isn't really alive?
