  • Krypton or Motion? Leaked images show BlackBerry's upcoming all-touchscreen phone

A few weeks back, we have seen a couple of leaks mentioning about a new Blackberry smartphone with a full touchscreen to launch in October. This leak came from famous leakster Evan Blass who also stated about the change in the name of the device. The last smartphone we saw from Blackberry was Blackberry KEYone with it's keyboard and touch form factor. We can expect the smartphone to be powered by a Snapdragon 625 processor and 4GB of RAM for incredible performance.

The BlackBerry Motion is another all-touchscreen handset from the company. Previously report on Engadget had quoted TCL's Fran├žois Mahieu as saying the upcoming BlackBerry phone will be ultra-secure and come with IP67-rating for water and dust-proofing. But even with the fingerprint reader the bezel seems abnormally large, which leads us to believe if BlackBerry has included a touchpad for UI interaction at the bottom.

But we also see a power key and what could be a "convenience" key right next to it. TCL/BlackBerry have implemented "convenience" keys in recent phones, allowing users to assign apps/functions to this button.

Japanese Journalist Dead From Overwork After Working 159 Hours in Osaka, Japan
Since then, Prime Minister Shinzo Abe's administration has sought to improve working conditions in the country. A 2014 sleep study's poll found that Japan's workforce sleeps less than any other country.


The biggest USP of the upcoming BlackBerry Motion smartphone is that it will feature an all-screen front panel. Other features include a full-HD display and 4GB of RAM. There was the modest Aurora (sans keyboard), specifically for the Indonesian market, and then there was the flagship KEYone, which was supposed to invoke memories of BlackBerry roots with its physical keyboard. The BlackBerry Motion will house a giant 4000mAh battery for 26 hours of continuous backup.

It has a 3.5mm jack too.

BlackBerry is no longer officially manufacturing its own smartphones or mobiles and is instead focusing on software, enterprise business solutions.
