It’s no longer news that BlackBerry’s second Android-powered smartphone – the BlackBerry DTEK50, is out and roaring for action. What may be news to some people is the fact that BlackBerry didn’t make the DTEK50.
Such moves aren’t new in the smartphone world really as the likes of Apple, Nokia, etc have most of their notable flagships produced by 3rd party OEMs. In this case, as stated in our past updates prelude to the launch, the BlackBerry DTEK50 was produced by the Chinese OEM – TCL; same makers of the Alcatel Idol 4.
First off, the slim build look, front and back speaker positioning as well as the dial on the side are exactly alike in both phones, except for the glass and metal back of the Idol 4 compared to the official rubbery textured back of the BlackBerry DTEK50. The cameras and LED flash, though placed in the same positions on both phones, look slightly different design. However, they offer the same picture quality and resolution.
