BlackBerry Motion Phone Leaked on Twitter

BlackBerry used to rule the smartphone space, but then the iPhone came out. BlackBerry execs deemed the iPhone a “toy” and a “fad,” but that fad eventually drove the company to revamp its product lineup. It was too late, though. BlackBerry will probably never regain the throne, but it’s not done with smartphones. It’s making a go of things with Android, and it looks like a new full-touch-screen BlackBerry Android phone is on the way. A posting from serial leaker Evan Blass has revealed the BlackBerry Motion.

BlackBerry (formerly known as RIM) used to have its own operating system called BlackBerry OS. Well, BB OS technically still exists, but the company is no longer releasing new phones that run it. BlackBerry made a valiant effort to save its platform by opening an app store and devising methods of emulating Android apps, but it was all too little, too late.

In 2015, BlackBerry launched the Priv, its first Android phone. That’s actually the only Android phone BlackBerry itself has ever built. After the Priv’s lackluster sales, it partnered with established device maker TCL, which has gotten some attention for its budget-minded Alcatel brand. The first few BlackBerry devices from this union were just re-badged Alcatel devices branded as “BlackBerry DTEK,” but the KEYone from earlier this year was all BlackBerry. That phone even had the iconic Blackberry keyboard, which tempted some BlackBerry OS stalwarts to make the switch to Android.

The newly leaked phone goes back to the all-screen DTEK-style design without a physical keyboard. This phone was previously rumored as the “Krypton,” but the final device will allegedly be called the “Motion.” BlackBerry’s code names are always better than the retail branding—the KEYone was “Mercury” and the Priv was “Venice.”

The new image is just a render, but it looks official, and Blass is a reputable source for leaks. The Motion seems like quite the flat black slab here. The right edge of the phone has a volume rocker, power button, and customary Blackberry shortcut key. There’s also what appears to be a physical home button in the enormous bezel under the display. It definitely doesn’t fit with the trend of minimizing bezel on modern smartphones. It does at least have a 3.5mm headphone jack, which more and more phones are dropping.

We don’t yet know when the Motion (if indeed that’s the name) will be released. A few big mobile tradeshows are happening early in 2018, so perhaps TCL and BlackBerry will wait until after the holiday rush to officially reveal this phone.

The only thing blackberry has left to offer is their keyboard. Unless it's a android based blaxkberry with a physical keyboard, they're not competing.

Blackberry needs to get serious. They need top tier specs at mid tier prices with innovative features. That's they only way back at this point.

This needs a dual camera at the back, with snapdragon 835, at least 6gb of ram with a front snapper of at least 12mp.

They gotta come with it. I would really love to work with them to replace establish their brand.

Keyboard phones are a niche now. No one is gonna drop any serious money on a keyboard phone and those who will don't make up enough impact to support it. Blackberry needs to get out of the phone business and into something else. Maybe make a Chromebook

That's not a bad idea. They should go into making an operating system for their own laptops, all in one computers, and maybe RF scanners like a watch base RF Scanner.

God damn if my black berry curve wasn't one of my fav phones. I know in 2017 we can't have that physical qwerty keyboard anymore. But I would like for them to make a comeback if for nothing else more competition in the cell phone market would be a good thing.

This. They have to take that setback for that major gain.

S/n I hate when people say "it's over"

One thing about Tech and entertainment is you're always one hit away from being #1


I would love for Apple to make a keyboard phone so I can see everyone back peddle

Man I used to work in telecom when we were using blackberry's in our company along with everyone else pretty much and the first driod released.

Shortly after that, Andriod's really caught on then they offered companies use of their phones with company email just like blackberry's, and it took off pretty quick.

Met with blackberry from our conversations, they lollygagged for a long time and started losing to the new smart phones with no keyboard or track pad which always got stuck. They bought up some Canadian technology companies but still stuck with the keyboard phones and eventually thought about letting apple and andriod use its blackberry messenger.

Anyway its their own fault that they failed, pretty much the same way they did to with palm pilots

They refused to get with the times and it left them fast. At this point you can see how long they took to realize people didnt care about keyboards anymore by how far behind they are.

Physical keyboards would be a waste of time on a slab form phone. Not losing real estate of the screens we have today.

Blackberry and Microsoft just can’t seem to figure out the phone game. If they want to get any type of market share they need to put out phones with iPhone 8 and Note 8 specs at a fraction of the cost because they’ve lost all trust of phone consumers.
