Specs are nothing more than a baseline of comparison these days. Nonetheless, they are great ways to compare things tit for tat. BlackBerry, Samsung and Apple all have offerings in the high-end slab smartphone space. We’ve heard about iPhone 7 and Samsung S7.
BlackBerry has a contender aimed at this space coming through partner TCL, the DTEK60 – the bigger brother to the well reviewed DTEK50. DTEK60 packs in market leading specifications to a secure handset running Android.
Here are the specs for the iPhone 7, the Samsung S7 and the upcoming DTEK60:
|PHONE||BlackBerry DTEK60||SAMSUNG S7||iPhone 7|
|Processor||Snapdragon 820||Snapdragon 820||A10 Fusion|
But how much is that going to cost?
These prices are not definitive but more of a snapshot at the time of this posting. Bought outright (unlocked direct from the seller), in mid-October, you can get an iPhone 7 from Apple for $649 dollars. The Samsung S7 can be yours at $669 and the DTEK60 is currently popping up on pre-order for only $499.
If these prices hold up, BlackBerry will have a very competitive offering that plays in the high end while offering a great price near $500. This pricing could be well received by a large group in both the enterprise and consumer space. While all devices are different, so are the people that buy them. What do you like about these phones? Do you think the DTEK60 is actually competitive?
