A couple of months ago, TCL confirmed that the company had a new BlackBerry phone in the works. Apart from confirming that the phone would sport an all touchscreen display, not much is known about the handset in terms of specs or design, although a recently leaked photo did clue us in ever so slightly.


However thanks to a post by the ever-reliable Evan Blass, a rendering of the upcoming handset codenamed Krypton has since been leaked in full. The phone, according to Blass, will be officially known as the BlackBerry Motion and from what we can tell actually looks pretty sleek. The render also seems to confirm that unlike other handset makers, the BlackBerry Motion will retain the headphone jack, so BlackBerry fans can rest assured knowing that they won’t need to start looking for wireless headphones.

As for specs, the BlackBerry Motion will not be of the flagship variety. In fact it seems to be more of a mid-ranger with a rumored Full HD display and the use of the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset. The upside is that if the rumors are true, then the BlackBerry Motion could be priced somewhat affordably.

Last we heard the BlackBerry Motion is supposed to be announced in October, which means that it shouldn’t be too long until we get all the official details.
