While BlackBerry has yet to unveil the mystery device, Twitter Tipster Evan Blass has a leaked out a press render of what he terms as the BlackBerry Motion, revealing an all touchscreen device, without any physical QWERTY keyboard. This phone was previously rumored as the "Krypton", but the final device will allegedly be called the "Motion". The Snapdragon 625 chipset along with 4 GB of RAM is pegged to power the BlackBerry Motion. At the base, there is a USB Type-C port flanked between 3.5mm headphone jack and a speaker grille. Instead, the front of the phone is treated with a large all-screen display and a home button which has the BlackBerry logo in it.

What's interesting to know is that the BlackBerry Motion is said to boast IP67 dust and water resistance.

Separately, a report from Engadget states that the phone would get the IP67 rating and the battery will run for almost 26 hours "mixed use".

The biggest USP of the upcoming BlackBerry Motion smartphone is that it will feature an all-screen front panel.

We now have the renders of what is known to be latest blackberry flagship, the BlackBerry Krypton. The handset is expected to release with Android 8.0 Oreo out of the box. There is no rumoured date for the launch of the BlackBerry Motion. The smartphone is unlikely to feature a physical keyboard. The smartphone will be carried by AT&T, Sprint and Verizon, and a dual-SIM version will be available in select markets (including China). It's similar to what we see from other manufacturers most of the times.
