BlackBerry Argon to be launched with 4GB RAM and 21MP Rear Camera

Every since BlackBerry jumped shots to the Android ecosystem, it has been struggling to make a name for itself. The entire confusion could be attributed to the fact that Android is an open-source OS (well, sort of) while the BlackBerry OS was proprietary and there was no real external threat unlike the fierce Android market. It seems like BlackBerry is finally getting a hold of itself. The BlackBerry BTEK60, also known as BlackBerry Argon, has been recently certified by the FCC and Wifi alliance.

The FCC certification gives us insights into the model number, which is stated to be BBA1001 while the WiFI certification is what conveys that the device is called as DTEK60.

As far as the specifications go, the BlackBerry Argon (DTEK60) will be equipped with a 5.5 inch Quad HD display. The handset will be powered by a top-of-the-line Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 which features 4 custom Kryo cores optimized for performance. It will be equipped with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage (which is a little disappointing, seeing as how the budget handsets like the Lenovo Zuk Z1 pack in at least 64GB of onboard storage).

The rear camera is stated to be 21 megapixels while the front camera is a selfie-friendly 8 megapixel one. The BlackBerry Argon is equipped with a 3,000 mAh battery and will be running a mildly customized version of the Android 6.0.1 Marshmallow out if the box.

Unfortunately, we don’t have any information about its pricing or availability yet.
