Update: BlackBerry Neon has been finally and its official name is BlackBerry DTEK50. We have relevant changes in this article to go to it with its correct name.
The Alliance between BlackBerry and Alcatel has been giving that talk a few days ago. We know that the Canadian company intends to launch two new smartphones with Android this year, which, at the moment, we knew by the nicknames of BlackBerry Rome and Hamburg, and also have sprung up clues that the brand could ally themselves with a new manufacturer, which would not be other than TCL, responsible for the manufacture of terminals of Alcatel.
The BlackBerry Hamburg already poked in a benchmark and more recently in a WiFi certified, reinforcing signs of the possible agreement with Alcatel. Blackberry Hamburg has once again become strained, and if a few days ago we knew more of its specifications to the passage by the FCC now we know that be called, almost in complete safety, BlackBerry DTEK50. And we have an image of her.
The appearance of the future BlackBerry DTEK50
If expected a special appearance to this BlackBerry DTEK50 because it is a terminal of the Canadian firm, it seems not to be so. TCL has applied a formula of design that already uses with a Alcatel, the symmetrical design that may allow you to turn from 180º to the entire interface, something that occur with the current terminals of the firm.
Unlike the BlackBerry Priv, the new DTEK50 will point to the mid-range Android, the operating system that will carry the terminal. We assumed that the manufacturer would be TCL was confirmed after passing through the FCC, and seems that the rumors that they were talking that it would be a variant of the Alcatel Idol 4 are confirming little by little.
As for the expected specifications, these are where we think we know for the moment based on rumours of weight and various leaks:
- 5.2-inch IPS LCD FullHD resolution
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 eight-core 1, 5 GHz
- 3GB of RAM LPDDR4
- 16GB storage internal more microSD
- 13 megapixel rear
- 8 megapixel front camera
- 2610 mAh with Quick Charge 2.0
- 6.0 Android Marshmallow
Everything pointed to that there would be no physical keyboard and it seems that this filtered image confirms it. Furthermore, expected is a competitive device in price and the rest of its specifications, something that we will probably know in brief, Perhaps this week on BlackBerry Security Submit call John Chen, CEO of the company that.
