BlackBerry Krypton Motion Specifications
BlackBerry Krypton is the next Android smartphone to feature BlackBerry branding. Codenamed as Krypton earlier, it is now being referred to as Krypton Motion.
Starting with the display, the FCC listings unveil a Full HD (1920 x 1080p) Full touchscreen panel on the smartphone. The Krypton Motion will not come with a physical QWERTY keyboard. It is expected to launch with near stock Android and the full BlackBerry suite of applications.
In terms of the physical layout, the recently leaked render shows a physical home button at the bottom, indicating the possibility of an integrated fingerprint sensor. The phone is shown sporting thick bezels at the top and bottom, with three physical buttons on the right side.
The dedicated key at the centre of the right side may be customizable to toggle functions like music control. The 3.5mm earphone jack is also there at the bottom, next to a USB Type-C port and a speaker grille. You can also notice antenna bans at the bottom, suggesting towards a metal back panel.
In terms of hardware, we can expect the BlackBerry Krypton Motion to sport a Snapdragon 625 processor or the newer Snapdragon 626 SoC. The processor is expected to be accompanied by 4GB RAM which should be adequate for most users. There is no information about the storage capacity and expansion option just yet.
The BlackBerry Krypton Motion is tipped to be powered by a 4,000 mAh battery. The removal of the physical keyboard and the presence of a home button indicates there may be capacitive navigation keys as well.
