This is the BlackBerry Motion

Since IFA Berlin 2017 a couple months ago, the BlackBerry community has been on edge over the firm's upcoming handset that is set to arrive in October. While we did catch an early glimpse of the alleged handset last month, only known by its code-name Krypton, it now appears that we are getting our first render of the front and its official moniker.

The leaked image comes courtesy of Evan Blass, who is known for having a fairly accurate track record when it comes to exposing devices and information early. Along with the image, Blass has indicated that it will be called Motion when it comes to retail.

Unlike the current BlackBerry KEYone, the Motion does not have a physical keyboard and instead looks more like a traditional smartphone with full display on the front. We can also see that the phone does have quite a larger bezel on the bottom that looks to house a physical button that could double as a fingerprint reader. Luckily, we don't have too much time to wait for an official reveal as it is set to be announced sometime this month.
