BlackBerry's upcoming Android smartphone, the DTEK60, is the star of a new leak that gives a clearer look at its front design.
The latest image comes from trusted tipster Evan Blass, also known as @evleaks, who has offered accurate information about unreleased devices or plans in the tech world on countless occasions so far. That's no guarantee that the leak is 100 percent accurate, but it does make it more credible.
BlackBerry, for its part, was once at the top of the food chain, but after falling significantly behind rivals on the smartphone market, it eventually moved to Android in an effort to keep its head above the water.
The company released its very first Android smartphone late in 2015, when it introduced the BlackBerry Priv. BlackBerry launched its second Android smartphone back in July this year, with the DTEK50, and it's now expected to reveal a new DTEK60 Android-powered smartphone soon enough.
The company's Android smartphones bear little resemblance to the old BlackBerry look with an iconic QWERTY keyboard, but that's hardly a surprise anymore. Times are changing, and BlackBerry is just trying to keep up.
The first images of the purported BlackBerry DTEK60 leaked last week, finally revealing what the smartphone should look like, but Blass now offers a clearer, less blurry look at the front of the device.
Based on this image, the DTEK60 will have slightly curved edges, on-screen navigation buttons and a sleek design overall. The leaked image also shows a few app icons such as the Google Play Store, BBM and others.
Blass makes no mention of specifications in this new leak, but the BlackBerry DTEK60 (codenamed "Argon") is expected to sport high-end internals and previous information from BlackBerry itself already painted a picture of what's in store.
The BlackBerry DTEK60 will come with a 5.5-inch QHD display (2,560 x 1,440 pixels) with a pixel density of 534 ppi and pack a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC under the hood, paired with Adreno 530 graphics and 4 GB of RAM.
Other specs of the DTEK60 include 32 GB of internal storage capacity, a 21-megapixel main camera on its rear, an 8-megapixel front shooter, a 3,000 mAh battery and a USB Type-C port.
The new BlackBerry DTEK60 may hit the market as a rebranded TCL 950, a smartphone that made its debut in China last week. For reference, the BlackBerry DTEK50 was a rebranded Alcatel Idol 4.
No information is available at this point as to when the BlackBerry DTEK60 will officially launch, but its recent stop at the FCC suggests an imminent debut. As always, we'll keep you in the loop as soon as more details hit the surface.
