BlackBerry’s next phone appears to counter trends with enormous bezel



BlackBerry is preparing to launch a new mid-range phone, and now, thanks to Evan Blass — a man who often accurately posts information about phones before said information is official — we probably know what it looks like. 

It’s called the BlackBerry Motion, and boy, is that lower bezel huge.

The phone (originally codenamed Krypton) is rumored to be a mid-ranger, with a Snapdragon 625 or 626 CPU, 4GB of RAM, a full HD display, IP67 water- and dust-resistance, a fingerprint sensor built into the home button, and a generous 4,000mAh battery. 

But still, at a time when most phone makers are trying to get rid of bezels, the Motion appears to have an exceptionally big bottom bezel. It’s not really that important for a business-oriented device, but the Motion will look dated compared to many of the Androids that came out this year. 

The leaked press render also shows that the Motion will have a USB-C connector and a headphone jack, which is becoming a rare sight these days. 

BlackBerry, who has China’s TLC building their phones for them, has experienced somewhat of a resurgence since it launched the well-received BlackBerry KEYone in the spring. The BlackBerry Motion, which will likely be officially launched sometime in October, appears to be a far less interesting device, but with the right price it could be a good fit for the BlackBerry faithful.
