According to Evan Blass, it will be launched as the Blackberry Motion. Mahieu had also talked about bringing dust and water-resistance to the phone, and if the BlackBerry motion is what he was referring to, then we can expect an IPX rating to also fall in place somewhere.
Speculation so far has hinted that the Motion could pack specs like a 1080p display, a water resistant body, a 4000mAh battery, and 4GB of RAM. The picture also suggests that the smartphone will have the 3.5mm audio jack. Also, the BlackBerry logo would be embedded on the fingerprint scanner. Mahieu, head of global sales for TCL, told Engadget that the phone could come with IP67 rating and a battery that could power the phone for almost 26 hours with "mixed use". It is not yet known when and where the BlackBerry Motion will release first, or how much it will cost. On the display front, the handset is expected to be full HD.
The reliable leakster, Evan has now posted a new official-looking render of the upcoming BlackBerry Motion. François Mahieu, Head of Global Sales for TCL, told Engadget that the phone would be sturdy enough to fearless all types of weather conditions, and would encourage users to ditch brands like iPhone and Galaxy.
We now have an clear quality press render of what was widely believed as the BlackBerry Krypton.
The BlackBerry Motion is rumoured to have a release date this month. The BlackBerry KEYone with a QWERTY keyboard which was launched in India in August was touted as the last smartphone designed in-house by the Canadian smartphone manufacturer. Also, a dual-SIM version would be made available in a few markets like China. It's similar to what we see from other manufacturers most of the times. Just aside the power button, it seems to have a camera button.
