BlackBerry DTEK50 has officially landed in the Philippines.

BlackBerry DTEK50 is dubbed as the “world’s most secure smartphone” – and for good reason. The company behind it, BlackBerry, has been known to build some of the most secure handsets a decade ago. Those who put security on top of their list turn to BlackBerry.

Despite rocking the striking tagline, BlackBerry also made sure that the DTEK50 have good hardware inside. It’s got a Snapdragon 617 octa-core chipset, 3GB of RAM, and Adreno 405 GPU to run the device.

Android is already secure on its own if you’re receiving regular security updates (read: if you’re using a Nexus or a recent flagship). While that’s enough for most consumers, BlackBerry doesn’t want anyone to mess with its phone. They’ve added layers of security and full data encryption to the DTEK50, making sure thieves will have a hard time breaking in on the smartphone. On top of that, BlackBerry promises same day updates whenever Google releases a security patch.

Popular online gadget shop Widget City has first made the BlackBerry DTEK50 available in the Philippines a couple of weeks ago with a price of only Php13,500. But as we know, there’s no official warranty included on most of their products. This is a problem if ever the customer encounters a problem in the future. And for the small price difference of only Php1,490, it’s definitely not  worth it. If ever they reduce the price to a more competitive value, then it’s up for you to decide.

BlackBerry DTEK50 is now available for a price of Php14,990. It has a SRP of $299 in the US, which means that we got a fairly decent price here in the country.
