Blackberry dtek50 black kenya specs price

The BlackBerry DTEK50 is an Android smartphone released in 2016. The phone is single sim nano sim and measures 147 x 72.5 x 7.4 mm with a weight of 135 grams. It only comes in the color black. BlackBerry DTEK50 price in Kenya starts from Kshs 30,000.


The display measures 5.2 inches and has a resolution of 1080 by 1920 pixels. You also get a pixel density of 424ppi. Therefore, I consider the display to be premium. When it comes to the camera, it has a rear 13MP lens with features such as geo tagging autofocus and face detection. When it comes to the selfie shooter, it is 8MP and can record videos at 1080p.

The BlackBerry DTEK50 runs android 6.0 Marshmallow. It comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 617 processor at 1.5GHz. Multi-tasking is a joy on this, because you have 3GB of RAM to play with. In the games and graphic intensive apps, the Adreno 405 ensures that they are easily run.

Storage is a little bit of a let down here. This is because the BlackBerry DTEK50 only comes with 16GB of internal storage. However, this can be expanded to 256GB using an external memory card. When it comes to connectivity, the laptop has 4G, 3G, GPRS, EDGE, GPRS, Wi-Fi and a microUSB 2.0.

The BlackBerry DTEK50 has a battery capacity of 2610mAh lithium ion battery with 17 hours of talktime if you are using 3G. Another good thing is that it has fast charging which makes it very convenient for rapid charging.
