BlackBerry Krypton will be released as BlackBerry Motion, a Full Touch Android Phone

BlackBerry was one of the main competitors in the smartphone market a few years ago, until iOS and Android devices took over. There have been reports of BlackBerry working on a touchscreen-only Android device called the BlackBerry Krypton. According to Evan Blass(American blogger, editor, and phone leaker), Krypton was the internal code name for the phone and that it will be launched as the BlackBerry Motion. In late September, there was in image leaked of the Motion which showed the back of the device, showing a brushed metal bar on top with a relatively small camera module on it.

One of the biggest highlight of the alleged BlackBerry Motion is its all-screen front panel which means that it wonR7;t sport QWERTY keyboard, as seen on the BlackBerry KEYone smartphone. The BlackBerry KEYone was launched in India back in August at 39,990INR and it had hardware QWERTY keyboard.

According to the leak, there will be a home button at the bottom of the front panel with BlackBerry logo which will possibly embed the fingerprint scanner. The right panel is seen housing three physical buttons likely for volume, power, and a dedicated key for assigning functions. We can expect the third button towards the middle can be used for playing music or launching an app directly just by pressing it. As expected from BlackBerry, the alleged Motion smartphone is likely to come with suite from the Canadian company.

The leaked render confirms few more features like the phone will sport a USB Type-C for charging and also house a 3.5mm audio jack at the bottom. There’s a speaker grille located at the bottom panel as well. A previous US FCC listing of the alleged BlackBerry Krypton suggested that the handset will pack Snapdragon 625 SoC hinting that it may have mid-range price tag. Other features include a full-HD display and 4GB of RAM. The handset is said to pack a 4000mAh battery.
