Major technology brands including Apple, Google, and Samsung recently unveiled their flagship (Company's best) devices. There is a wide range of options that consumers can choose from at least, at the moment. But if these handsets do not satisfy what the consumers are looking for then there is another company working its way into launching a smartphone. According to a report by Tech Radar, BlackBerry is rumored to be working on a new device.

The speculated picture of the smartphone

Prolific leaker, #Evan Blass took to Twitter to publish pictures of this upcoming #Blackberry smartphone. According to Blass, the handset-in-question will be called “#Motion.” The device has apparently been leaked before.

But in these leaks, the smartphone was referred to as, “Krypton.” What triggered BlackBerry to change the smartphone’s name possibly, is not known yet. There are chances that the firm might change the official name once again before the smartphone is launched. The device looks to hold a number of similarities with last year’s BlackBerry DTEK50. For instance, it features a tactile keyboard. BlackBerry has long stuck to this design. It makes it possible for them to offer budget-friendly smartphones.

Specs and features details

The company has held a reputation for avoiding integrating touch-screen interface in their smartphones. It’s not certain as of now, whether they will continue to do so in “Motion,” as well. The Tech Radar report further went on to suggest that TCL will manufacture the handset.

TCL has been in charge of manufacturing BlackBerry smartphones for over two years now. Sometime last month, TCL’s Global Head of Sales, Mr. Francois Mahieu had announced that they were planning on unveiling a new BlackBerry in October, this month. According to a report by Engadget, he even revealed that the device will be keyboard-free. This means that the smartphone will support touchscreen. Furthermore, the handset will also come integrated with water-resistant capabilities. These two are probably the primary highlights of the handset.

CrackBerry reports that the BlackBerry “Motion,” will go on to feature a full-HD display. According to Gadget 360, the smartphone will offer 4GB of RAM and will be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 chipset. Furthermore, the handset will house a 4,000mAh battery. The upcoming BlackBerry device is expected to fall in the mid-range category.
