If you were not also taken with the new flagship handsets from Apple, even the Apple iphone X, or Google’s Pixel 2 – hey, anything’s possible – there’s generally BlackBerry to change to.
Before currently highly regarded leaker Evan Blass took to Twitter to submit a photo of what he says is the BlackBerry ‘Motion’, which the rumor mill had earlier been calling the BlackBerry Krypton. In an age when phones explode and wellness issues still lurk, it’d probably a good point that identify was ditched.
A lot like last year’s budget-helpful BlackBerry DTEK50, it chucks the tactile keyboard which is been a hallmark of BlackBerry gadgets for yrs in favor of the touchscreen interface employed for most modern smartphones.
Further than that, we really don’t know much, other than that it’ll be built by TCL (who makes all of BlackBerry’s phones these times).
TCL’s worldwide head of profits François Mahieu said last August that the then-unnamed gadget would launch someday this thirty day period. Mahieu also informed Engadget about the exact time that the keyboard-no cost gadget would (very likely) be qualified water-resistant.
All other information and facts is rooted in rumor, and typically sketchy rumor at that. As CrackBerry studies, it’ll very likely have a 1920×1080 display, 4GB of RAM, a 4000 mAh battery, and a Snapdragon 625 or 626 processor. It’ll also very likely have a home button with a fingerprint scanner, which Blass’ photo would seem to validate.
In other text, it is tempting to dismiss it as a rather ordinary Android cellphone, with minimal to distinguish it aside from the waterproofing and (very likely) a comparatively safe Android program as we observed with the DTEK50. Still BlackBerry, of course, has stunned us in the previous, and there’s generally a chance they will once more.
