However, the Motion looks classy and glossy in the images. The BB logo placed over the chin, adds a special appeal for the device. There is a speculation that, the BB logo features a fingerprint scanner embedded underneath it.
Fortunately, the device in the render carries a 3.5mm audio jack on the bottom where you can see a USB Type-C port and two speaker grids as well. Moreover, there is a power button, volume rocker and an unknown button attached on the left side. Most probably, the latter button should be a dedicated key to summon the Google Assistant.
Courtesy to certain rumors, the BlackBerry Krypton posses an IP67 rated dust and water resistance capability. The device is also expected to exhibit a stellar battery life of 26 hours.
Moving onto the software section, the BB Motion in the image is running the pure Android OS and not the BlackBerry Secure. We could expect BlackBerry to bundle all of its enterprise-level software security features on the device too.
