BlackBerry has confirmed that its Priv and DTEK smartphones will not receive an update to Android 7.0 Nougat or 8.0 Oreo. Regardless, security updates should continue for the affected devices.
BlackBerry is one of the first manufacturers to roll out the March security update for its Android devices, after Google released its latest round of patches for the OS earlier this week.
If you were hoping to get your hands on a high-end Android Blackberry handset, the DTEK60 might be for you. The DTEK60 offers a Snapdragon 820, 4GB RAM, 21MP camera and will retail for $499.
BlackBerry has announced that it will "end all internal hardware development", with future "BlackBerry-branded devices" built by third parties, running its custom "secure Android smartphone software".
After BlackBerry published details of its new Android phone on a web page with "do-not-publish" in its URL last week, leaked images of the DTEK60 now show a strong resemblance to Alcatel's Idol 4S.
The full specs list of the BlackBerry DTEK60, codename 'Argon', have leaked. The 5.5-inch device reportedly features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor, 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage.
