For those of you that thought BlackBerry was *In Justin Timberlake’s Voice* Dead and gone, well think again because rumour has it that BlackBerry is preparing to launch a new mid-range phone.
It’s called the BlackBerry Motion, and while other smartphones (copy iPhone) are going the “bezel-less” route, the bezel on this Blackberry is huge!
Although, it’s not really that important for a business-oriented device, but the BlackBerry Motion will look dated compared to many of the Androids that came out this year.
The phone (originally codenamed Krypton) is rumored to be a mid-ranger, with a Snapdragon 625 or 626 CPU, 4GB of RAM, a full HD display, IP67 water- and dust-resistance, a fingerprint sensor built into the home button, and a generous 4,000mAh battery.
The leaked press render also shows that the Motion will have a USB-C connector and a headphone jack, which is becoming a rare sight these days.
BlackBerry, who has China’s TLC building their phones for them, has experienced somewhat of a resurgence since it launched the well-received BlackBerry KEYone in the spring. The BlackBerry Motion, which will likely be officially launched sometime this October, appears to be a far less interesting device, but with the right price it could be a good fit for the BlackBerry faithful.
