BlackBerry Motion, BlackBerry's Upcoming All-touchscreen Phone Image leaks


Prolific tipster Evan Blass has leaked a render showing the alleged BlackBerry "Krypton" which is speculated to be unveiled as BlackBerry Motion.

The Motion - formerly known as the "Krypton" - is TCL's latest BlackBerry gadget since acquiring the early noughties smartphone giant.

Below the bezel sits a 3.5 mm headphone jack, a USB type-C port and a speaker. Instead the device will house a huge screen with a home button with a BlackBerry logo embedded. Previously report on Engadget had quoted TCL's François Mahieu as saying the upcoming BlackBerry phone will be ultra-secure and come with IP67-rating for water and dust-proofing. The BlackBerry Motion could be it. On the battery front, the phone will pack a decent 4000 mAh. The phone is reported to sport a Full HD display, though the screen size is relatively not known at the moment.

We will definitely keep you updated about the " BlackBerry Motion" as soon as we have any official news from the manufacturer. François Mahieu, Head of Global Sales for TCL, told Engadget that the phone would be sturdy enough to fearless all types of weather conditions, and would encourage users to ditch brands like iPhone and Galaxy. The handset is expected to release with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box.

The new device will follow Blackberry's KEYone Android handset, which was revealed in May. Yet in terms of BlackBerry Motion very reminiscent of the last Google Pixel 2, which was submitted two days ago. The smartphone will be carried by AT&T, Sprint and Verizon, and a dual-SIM version will be available in select markets (including China). We can expect the third button towards the middle can be used for playing music or launching an app directly just by pressing it.
