Earlier this year, the Canadian company had announced that they would be withdrawing from the smartphone manufacturing business, instead letting TCL make the phones running, BlackBerry software. According to Evan Blass, the BlackBerry Motion is the official name of so called BlackBerry Krypton, which was in the rumor-mill since IFA 2017. There is a speculation that, the BB logo features a fingerprint scanner embedded underneath it. Rumors say it'll have a 1080p display, a midrange Snapdragon processor, and a 4000mAh battery, but there's no guarantee around any of that.

Super-frame screen BlackBerry Motion Full HD resolution, but its diagonal is unknown, and the amount of RAM reaches 4 GB in the maximum configuration. 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. The bezels surrounding the display appear to be thinner than previous BlackBerry handsets but are still thick compared to devices using an 18:9 aspect ratio. The company is calling its operating system BlackBerry Secure, which will come with all security features that are available with a BlackBerry-branded smartphone. One can see a 3.5mm headphone jack and a USB Type-C port along with a mono speaker at the bottom.

Perhaps most importantly to old-school BlackBerry owners, the Motion in the image shows no physical keyboard, suggesting virtual keys will be the norm going forward.

Separately, inspired by the response to the KeyOne, TCL Communications has announced an all-new BlackBerry KeyOne Black Edition.

Citing a reliable source, PhoneArena says that BlackBerry Motion will come to the US, where it will be available on AT&T, Sprint and Verizon. 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.
