If you recall, there were rumours back in June that Blackberry was working on three devices codenamed Neon, Argon, and Mercury. Well, the Neon was already released in July as DTEK50, named after the DTEK security app that debuted with the BlackBerry Priv. Blackberry touted is as the world’s most secure smartphone, and ironically lacked a fingerprint reader. The self-claimed title didn’t help it with the Quadrooter exploit however as it still affected the DTEK50 anyways.
Although we haven’t heard a lot about the BlackBerry ‘Argon’ since the initial rumors popped up, there’s now some further evidence the device exists directly off of BlackBerry’s servers.
The information comes courtesy of a document hosted on BlackBerry’s US website that lists all the key specifications of the DTEK60. 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.
Talking of specs, we are looking at a 5.5-inch screen with a 1440 x 2560 resolution. It is expected that it will be powered by a Snapdragon 820 chipset with a quad-core CPU and the Adreno 530 GPU. It will also pack 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage. As far as the camera is concerned, it will feature a 21-megapixel rear facing shooter and an 8-megapixel front facing selfie shooter. The device will be powered by a 3,000 mAh battery and it will come with Quick-charge 3.0 and Android 6.0 Marshmallow pre-installed.
The screen will feature intuitive gesture based navigation and will be all touch (no physical QWERTY).
These specs are exactly inline with what has already been rumored about the Argon, strongly suggesting that the device will hit the market as the DTEK60.
What do you think about the new one from Blackberry? If the lack of a fingerprint scanner had kept you away from Blackberry, would you consider the DTEK60?
