TCL has only recently begun its work with BlackBerry and Android, but the company has already done a relatively impressive job of rebuilding the ailing brand. It also has a headphone jack, which is conspicuously absent from market leaders like Apple's iPhones and Google's new Pixel 2 handsets. While the bezel at the top and sides seem normal for a BlackBerry device, the bottom bezel seems abnormally large. While there is no exact launch date mentioned, it is expected to be officially launched in the month of October. The images did not show the frontside of the phone. After tweeting out the leaked image, Blass made it clear that this was not going to BlackBerry's flagship. Mahieu had also talked about bringing dust and water-resistance to the phone, and if the BlackBerry motion is what he was referring to, then we can expect an IPX rating to also fall in place somewhere.
The newly leaked phone goes back to the all-screen DTEK-style design without a physical keyboard.
The new device will follow Blackberry's KEYone Android handset, which was revealed in May.
Following Internationale Funkausstellung Berlin or IFA 2017, there have been a number of rumors which suggested that BlackBerry was prepping up to release a brand-new all-touchscreen smartphone. The smartphone is rumored to run on Qualcomm 625, like all government employees from Xiaomi, and it'll have a battery capacity of 4000 mAh, 64 GB of internal memory and a housing with protection against water according to IP67 standard. It sounds like a solid budget option all-in-all, enhanced with BlackBerry's security-focused blend of its own software and Android. Its biggest highlight was its hardware QWERTY keyboard. The BlackBerry Motion could be a mid-range phone with a Snapdragon processor.
