BlackBerry Argon may yet make it to market as the DTEK60
It’s been a while since we’ve heard anything about the rumored BlackBerry Argon, but some new information suggests that the handset might still be on the way. A specification page over at BlackBerry, funnily enough marked as “donotpublish.html“, reveals that the Argon might make its way to market as the DTEK60.
The specification page reaffirms earlier hardware rumors. The DTEK60 looks set to come with a 5.5-inch QHD (2560×1440) resolution display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB of internal storage. The listing also reveals a 21 megapixel rear camera, 8 megapixel front camera, 3,000mAh non-removable battery, Quick Charge 3.0 technology, a USB Type-C port, a “convenience key”, and a fingerprint scanner on board. So that’s pretty much everything that you would find in today’s top tier smartphones.
The page also lists specifications for the 5.2-inch DTEK50 that was launched earlier in the year. This model doesn’t feature the fingerprint scanner of its rumored larger sibling, and the listing also notes the lower 13 megapixel rear camera resolution. Overall the DTEK60 looks to be a slightly higher specced version of the DTEK50.See also: BlackBerry DTEK50 review
Unfortunately, there aren’t any images attached to the webpage. Previous rumors suggest that the phone could be a re-branded TCL 950, in the same way that the DTEK50 was a rebranded Alcatel Idol 4. The TCL 950 has previously passed China’s TENAA and popped up on GFXBench sporting similar specs. Sadly for some, there’s no mention of a physical keyboard on the spec page or in any of the previous rumors.
