Is this Blackberry's next smartphone? Leak reveals a water-resistant, all-touchscreen 'Motion' device

This device follows the KEYone smartphone that released earlier this year. The body of the phone has hardened aluminum frame and soft-grip textured back. On the software front, the Motion runs on Android Nougat 7.1 out-of-the-box. There's DTEK security suite feature on the device, and it also features support for FIPS 140-2 Full Disk Encryption, Android For Work, and Google Play for Work features. A new feature called Locker will securely store the user's documents and photos on the innate storage. The sensor is placed in a rectangular button located just below the display. The feature is to act as a shortcut access to four options- Home, Car, Office and User. The 4,000mAh battery packed into the Motion should be able to achieve that. On the front is a premium scratch-resistant LCD display of 5.5 inches which has a full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. However, some rumors are claiming that the device will come with Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset which is quite low.

Internal specifications of the Blackberry Motion are similar to the Blackberry KEYone (review), and even the rear panel of the Motion resembles KEYone.

Other specs of the phone include a 4000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support, IP67 dust and water resistance, USB Type C port and microSD card support. It has dual sim and comes with 4G LTE connectivity. The camera can record videos up to 4K. On the connectivity front, it supports 4G VoLTE, Bluetooth, WiFi, USB Type-C port and Global Positioning System.

Blackberry motion will be available in Middle Easter markets like UAE and Saudi Arabia first for $460 around ₹30,000.

The BlackBerry Motion is the brand's third smartphone with no physical keyboard, and running Android, after the DTEK50 and DTEK60 launched to lukewarm success in summer 2016.
