Detailed Specifications of the Blackberry DTEK50 – The World’s Most Secure Android Smartphone

Blackberry Dtek50 specs

You think Blackberry is dead? Well, think again. The Canadian Smartphone maker unveiled its second Android Smartphone on the 26th of July 2016. The company calls it the “world’s most secure Android Smartphone”. I feel this will make people consider taking a second look at this device as more and more people are pushing for encryption amidst government spying concerns.\

Blackberry Dtek50 specsThe emphasis is on security. Blackberry has said that with DTEK50 you don’t have to worry about bank info being stolen or family pictures can being downloaded through a malware.  DTEK50™ ensures that how you share the private details of your life is for you to decide.

World most secure smartphone

According to the Blackberry, DTEK™ by BlackBerry® for Android™ 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. With just a quick glimpse you can see the overall security rating for your device—excellent, fair or poor—and what you can do to improve it. DTEK also tracks your applications and notifies you when someone is:
