BlackBerry DTEK50 has been officially launched yesterday. It is being dubbed as the “World’s most secure Android Smartphone”. It basically encrypts all the users’ information, that includes critical business and personal data. It is FIPS 140-2 compliant as well. Also, it comes with Malware protection along with back-up wipe and restore capabilities.
Coming to the software, it provides users with visibility and control over which apps get access to personal information or device features such as the microphone or camera. DTEK by BlackBerry app will enable the users to automatically monitor their OS and apps to know when their privacy could be at risk and to take necessary actions to improve it.
It also has Secure Boot Process so each stage of DTEK50’s secure boot chain must first verify that the next component is fully intact before proceeding, which will ensure that your device has not been tampered with since the last restart. Lets check out the specifications and features of the smartphone, which is quite similar to the Alcatel Idol 4.
