Upcoming BlackBerry Motion with All-touchscreen Leaked in a Press Render

Posted October 07, 2017

The news comes from Evan Blass who posted a picture of the new BlackBerry Motion smartphone on Twitter, you can see the tweet below.

There's a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, with the device powered by a 3505mAh battery enhanced by Qualcomm's Quick Charge 3.0 abilities.

Loud speaker openings can be spotted at the bottom border that also harbors the USB port and audio jack. Below the display, we see a home button with an embedded BlackBerry logo inside. Speculations have it that the BlackBerry Motion would be coming with an IP67 rated chassis.

Moving onto the software section, the BB Motion in the image is running the pure Android OS and not the BlackBerry Secure. The code name Krypton may have been an internal moniker for the impending smartphone, and to be fair, the "Motion" particularly has a pleasant name to it.

There's a display of unknown size which is said to have Full-HD resolution. Moreover, the upcoming smartphone is expected to back by a 4000mAh battery with 26 hours of battery life.

The phone could be water-resistant too, according to a report by Engadget earlier this year. Another leakster Roland Quandt, has revealed the US carriers that will be selling the BlackBerry Motion.

The new device will follow Blackberry's KEYone Android handset, which was revealed in May. There is no rumoured date for the launch of the BlackBerry Motion. The smartphone will be carried by AT&T, Sprint and Verizon, and a dual-SIM version will be available in select markets (including China). Other than that, there's not much else known about its specs. We can expect the third button towards the middle can be used for playing music or launching an app directly just by pressing it.
