After introducing, BlackBerry Key One – a Qwerty keypad-touchscreen phone, the Canadian firm is working on a new touchscreen Android smartphone. The news came from a reputable and reliable source that posted images of the leaked phone online, and also confirmed that the phone will be named as the BlackBerry Motion rather than the ‘Krypton’.

BlackBerry Motion Specification and Features
The BlackBerry Motion is going to be the full touchscreen display smartphone, with no room for BlackBerry’s physical or slider Qwerty keypad.
Major highlights that were leaked by the render are a home button at the bottom bezel with Blackberry logo, which could possibly embed the fingerprint sensor, a USB type-C port and a 3.5mm audio jack, all at the bottom edge of the phone, and the necessary volume rocker and power button, and a physical third button, on the right edge. There’s a speaker grille located at the bottom edge as well.
Other than that, the phone will be designed by BlackBerry’s hardware partner, TCL, and will likely operate on the Android-based BlackBerry Secure.
A previous US FCC listing of the alleged BlackBerry Krypton reflects that the phone may sport a full HD display, Snapdragon 630 processor, and 4GB of RAM. The BlackBerry Motion is likely to run on BlackBerry’s own Android software and may house a 3,000mAh battery.
