BlackBerry Motion leak shows off the full-touch smartphone

BlackBerry's upcoming all-touchscreen phone has leaked Blackberry Motion with FullView Display: Goodbye Krypton

Fresh information that has been leaked by well-known tipster Evan Blass reveals that the upcoming Krypton phone may debut as BlackBerry Motion.

Earlier there were rumours surrounding a BlackBerry Android smartphone called the Krypton.

On the processor front, BlackBerry Motion would sit on Snapdragon 625 SoC along with Adreno 506 GPU and 4GB of RAM. There is a speculation that, the BB logo features a fingerprint scanner embedded underneath it.

On top of that, the BlackBerry Motion seems to be made out of metal, runs Android and includes a 3.5mm headphone jack. The device is also said to be IP67-water and dust-resistant so you don't have to worry about some water or particles getting inside your phone. Mahieu, head of global sales for TCL, told Engadget that the phone could come with IP67 rating and a battery that could power the phone for almost 26 hours with "mixed use".

We can see from the image that the new device won't have the famous BlackBerry keyboard like the KEYone, opting instead for a full touchscreen display, which is flanked by rather sizable bezels by today's increasingly strict standards. In terms of battery life, the BlackBerry Motion is expected to deliver up to 26 hours of mixed usage, which is fairly impressive.

Naming the new phone Motion is an interesting callback to the original name of Blackberry - Research In Motion. On the right side, we see three physical buttons. Yet in terms of BlackBerry Motion very reminiscent of the last Google Pixel 2, which was submitted two days ago.

The upcoming release of the BlackBerry Motion comes after the launch of the Blackberry KEYone back in April. No word about the price so far, but we sincerely hope it will be competitive enough to actually sell more than just a few thousand units.
