Not All Smartphones Are Equally Secure
When it comes to security, BlackBerry leads all other Android smartphones. Security isn’t something they tack on, it’s fully integrated into their device hardware and OS.
BlackBerry set the bar in incident response and patch management, and bring their world-renowned security experts and testing to their new line of BlackBerry secure smartphones powered by Android. DTEK60 will keep you safe and secure.
Take back control of your privacy
Security can seem complicated, but we want to make it simple for you. DTEK will automatically monitor your OS and apps and let you know when your privacy could be at risk and how you can take action to improve it. DTEK also tracks your applications and notifies you when someone is: taking pictures or videos without your knowledge, turning your microphone on, sending a text message, or accessing your contacts or location.
Your index finger naturally lands on the rear-mounted fingerprint sensor on the DTEK60 when you pick it up.
The BlackBerry Fingerprint Sensor provides added security for unlocking your phone, accessing Password Keeper and making purchases – including Android Pay.
You can add up to 5 fingerprints which are stored fully encrypted giving you trusted security at your fingertips.
Device security built in from the start
BlackBerry lives and breathes security and has taken extra steps to help protect you from malware, data breaches and any attempts to hack and tamper with your OS.
DTEK60 is packed with lots of other security features like Encryption that protects your pictures or bank info from being stolen if you were to lose your phone, and Password Keeper to store secret passwords and notes. Take control and be confident knowing your personal data is being kept private.
Updating the security of your device, long after you have purchased it
Many popular smartphones put the user’s private information at risk of being hacked due to slow security updates. BlackBerry has a record of being the quickest to deliver security patches. Other smartphones can take weeks, months or even years to deliver security patches, leaving you vulnerable and at risk. So even though you can’t see it, you know that extra precautions are taken at both the hardware and software level to protect DTEK60 from malicious tampering.
Work & Play
BlackBerry drove the era of moving email onto phones, so they know a thing or two about how to make productivity on a smartphone effortless. Whether it’s integrating all your email, text and social messages into one place or giving you a really smart keyboard, BlackBerry has made sure doing stuff on your phone isn’t burdensome.
BlackBerry intelligent keyboard
DTEK60 features a smart keyboard designed to learn from you and increase your typing accuracy and speed. The BlackBerry Intelligent Keyboard learns and provides word suggestions as you type, that include up to 3 languages of your choice, letting you flick them into place for faster conversations.
BlackBerry understands that every second counts and convenience is key. That’s why DTEK60 comes with a customisable BlackBerry Convenience Key. With the press of a button, the Convenience Key provides quick access to your most used applications, tasks and more.
Colossal battery life
DTEK60 packs a 3000 mAh battery with enough power to withstand up to 24 hours of mixed use. Discover the confidence that comes with proven battery life and the freedom of being unplugged all day long.
Keep organised with BlackBerry Hub.
This unified inbox is an irreplaceable tool for consolidating all of your messages in one place – whether it’s email, calendar, social or phone calls. Once you experience BlackBerry Hub, you’ll wonder how you ever lived without it.
Dazzling photo quality
Whether you’re looking to capture a selfie or the moment around you, DTEK60 is engineered to deliver professional looking photos. Capture the perfect selfie with an 8MP front facing camera with a LED flash, or capture the moment with the dazzling 21MP auto-focus rear camera.
The camera is equipped with a range of professional settings including live colour filters and manual controls. Plus, features like Phase Detection Auto Focus and a dual-tone LED flash are designed to help the camera focus instantly and accurately for blur-free, realistic looking photos, even in low light.
5.5” Quad HD scratch resistant touchscreen
DTEK60 has a stunning 5.5” scratch and smudge resistant display. It sports an incredible pixel density of 534 PPI – that’s 4 x the number of pixels of a standard HDTV. And because the display is AMOLED, it delivers richer colours and deeper black levels with less power consumption, so you can revel in its beauty for even longer.
DTEK60 offers a micro SD card slot to expand the smartphone’s storage. With support for micro SD cards up to 2 TB, DTEK60 gives you the flexibility to add affordable and hot-swappable memory to download, install, capture and share as your needs evolve.
This ability to expand the memory is in addition to the internal memory which is 16GB.
BlackBerry Calendar is the best out-of-box calendar experience on Android. When it’s time to join a call, DTEK60 presents you with a simple Join Now button that automatically dials you in. When receiving or creating meeting invites, you are presented with adjacent or conflicting appointments.
Whether it is Gmail, Exchange or Outlook email accounts, these can be easily added configured and used on the DTEK60.
