We now have an clear quality press render of what was widely believed as the BlackBerry Krypton. According to the ever notoriously trustworthy mobile phone leaker Evan Blass, it will be out in the wild as the BlackBerry Motion.
Following Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin or IFA 2017, there have been a number of rumors which suggested that BlackBerry was prepping up to release a brand-new all-touchscreen smartphone. We have seen an alleged image of its rear panel a couple of weeks ago, showing a brushed aluminum metal bar on the top of the device with a relatively small camera sensor component on it.
The handset phone, which was widely dubbed as the BlackBerry “Krypton,” is anticipated to be launched later this month of October, and we now have a clearer picture of what the BlackBerry Motion is going to look like, thanks to Evan Blass:

Before we tackle about its design, however, it’s worth telling that according to Blass, the Krypton phone is going to officially be marketed as the BlackBerry Motion. 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.
The BlackBerry Motion, pictured above, is yet another all-touchscreen phone from the Canadian technology company. It is designed by and manufactured by the Chinese consumer electronics company TCL Corporation per their licensing partnerships, and while it’s not the most fascinating form-factor design in the market, speculations and rumors claimed that the BlackBerry Motion will be shipped with an IP67 rating and a eye-watering 26 hours of solid battery life. Combining all that what we know so far with the most secure mobile hardware, enterprise-friendly software found on any BlackBerry device, the Motion could be the ideal device for business-minded people.
“It has standard 3.5mm audio jack port, too.”
Unlike the previously-launched BlackBerry KEYone, apart from the dedicated home button, volume and power buttons, the Motion has no physical keyboard. Instead, the front of the phone is treated with a large all-screen display and a home button which has the BlackBerry logo in it. As you can see from the leaked image posted by Blass, the phone appears to have a the standard 3.5mm headphone jack port at the bottom and USB-C port as well as a speaker on the right side.
