BlackBerry Motion leaks, shows its giant bezels

A couple of things stand out in the leaked press render. First, apparently neither company cares about the industry trend in which bezels are being slimmed. The top bezel is noticeably thick, but the bottom bezel is downright massive. It’s a huge chin with a BlackBerry-stamped home button in the center. The edge of the glass, though, does have a slight curve to make the front a bit more attractive.

Rumored specifications for the Motion include a Full HD (1920×1080) display, Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625 or 626 with 4GB of RAM, a 4000mAh battery, and IP67 certification.

The Motion shown here also exposes a USB-C port, headphone jack, and speaker grill on the bottom. Along the right side there’s a power button volume rocker, and action key. Those are all qualities being carried over from the KeyOne.

BlackBerry’s Motion made by TCL should be launched and released in October. It’s price is expected to be set at $499, which is slightly lower than what the KeyOne goes for. BlackBerry is still trying to find that sweet spot in pricing.
