A big mistake by BlackBerry has led to the company itself leaking the specifications of its upcoming device – the Blackberry DTEK60. By the looks of it, the DTEK60 looks to be BlackBerry’s flagship device for 2016. The DTEK60 is a probable premium update to the cheaper DTEK50 that the company had released back in July 2016.

According to The Next Web, Blackberry published a document unintentionally in its website which had most of the information about the DTEK60. The device, Codenamed Argon, packs high-end specs a phone of 2016 would usually pack. The DTEK60 will sport a 5.5-inch QuadHD display. It will be powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 64-bit chipset and a Quad-core processor, and will be equipped with 4GB RAM and Adreno 530 GPU.

The document has stated the device to have 32GB of onboard storage. However, it hasn’t been mentioned whether the device will feature a slot for expandable storage or not. Also not mentioned in the document is the Android version the device runs on. It will be a good move for Blackberry if this device can feature Android 7.0 Nougat out of the box.  But it will probably run Android 6.0 Marshmallow.

Camera wise, the DTEK60 will be equipped with a 21-megapixel rear facing camera and an 8-megapixel front facing camera. The device will also feature USB Type-C connector that is capable of fast charging as it is enabled with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. Also, the DTEK60 will be the first BlackBerry device to house a fingerprint sensor. All this will be run by a 3000mAh battery.

BlackBerry DTEK60 could share its design with the DTEK50.

Here’s all you need to know about the leaked specifications of the BlackBerry DTEK60:

DISPLAY 5.5-inch 2560 x 1440 pixels display
CHIPSET Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 64-bit
CPU Quad-core processor
GPU Adreno 530
Android (Version Not Available)
QUICK CHARGE Available (Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0)
PRICE Not Available

Note: The specs of the BlackBerry DTEK60 could be different once it is released.

If specs are considered, the BlackBerry DTEK60 looks set to be a decent device to buy. It could also give smartphones from bigger companies a run for their money. But we all know specs aren’t the only things that determine the quality of any device. On paper, this device looks like a decent flagship, but it could all change once it is released and people get their hands on the device.

It’s commendable that Blackberry is changing itself. Last year it was ditching BlackBerry’s own Operating System for Android, and a few months back it was disbanding the physical keyboard with the DTEK50. But it could all go wrong with this device like it has been for previous Blackberry devices. So, BlackBerry needs to focus on making the device secure, powerful and fast with a good camera and no bugs or lag. Only then will it rise.
