Blackberry Motion with FullView Display: Goodbye Krypton

BlackBerry's upcoming all-touchscreen phone has leaked

However, earlier today well-known tech leaker Evan Blass tweeted that the next BlackBerry flagship smartphone will be released as BlackBerry Motion instead of "Krypton".

"Krypton" could be a code name for the upcoming smartphone for the developers and to be very frank, BlackBerry Motion sounds much cooler.

On the processor front, BlackBerry Motion would sit on Snapdragon 625 SoC along with Adreno 506 GPU and 4GB of RAM.


"It has standard 3.5mm audio jack port, too."

". Below the screen there's a physical home button with a Blackberry logo while above the screen you have the usual set of speaker grille, front-facing camera and proximity/ambient light sensors. It may also be IP67-rated for water and dust resistance. "Hello, BlackBerry Motion". As you can see, the design of the BlackBerry Motion isn't anything new.

The BlackBerry Motion is another all-touchscreen handset from the company. The phone is reported to sport a Full HD display, though the screen size is relatively not known at the moment.

The only detail confirmed by Mr Mahieu is that the smartphone will be water resistant, which he told Engadget.

We now have an clear quality press render of what was widely believed as the BlackBerry Krypton. The handset is expected to release with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. Yet in terms of BlackBerry Motion very reminiscent of the last Google Pixel 2, which was submitted two days ago. Also, a dual-SIM version would be made available in a few markets like China. A report in August said that BlackBerry will launch a full-touchscreen smartphone this month. Fanboys wanted a Black edition for a long time, and it seems like the company has just made a decision to fulfill their wish. It's similar to what we see from other manufacturers most of the times.
