Weeks ago, the rumour surfaced that Blackberry will release a new phone with the name Blackberry Krypton. According to Evan Blass, the phone does exist and it will release with the name Blackberry Motion. The phone was initially planned to be released somewhere in October and we only had the top-back part of the phone, but thanks to Evan, we now have the full image of the phone.
As we can see in the image, the company has decided to do away with the physical keyboard and stuck to the soft-keyboard which is somewhat more favourable to the majority of the people. Other rumours have mentioned that the phone will come with an IP67 rating and apparently, 26 hours of battery life. In addition to that, Blackberry will also include all of their security features that we have seen in the previous phone, mainly the KEYone.

Contradictory to our thought, Krypton was just the code name of the phone, which is basically a placeholder name for a new device until the company can decide on the name. We are still not sure when the phone will actually release but we will update you when it does come out.
