The DTEK50 is the 1st smartphone of Blackberry that they didn’t design, yup it was commissioned by TCL which is also the manufacturer of Alcatel. Launched last August 2016, the smartphone was announced as the most secure smartphone of Blackberry. Interestingly, the phone is running Android 6.0 Marshmallow with Blackberry’s proprietary enhancement for security.
