BlackBerry was making smartphones before phones were smart.

During this year's IFA tech event which took place in Berlin, BlackBerry announced that its working on a brand new all touchscreen device that will be launched under the name Krypton.

The phone is now under development and has been spotted in leaked images which highlight the back of the device.

While BlackBerry might have bowed out of the hardware markets, the brand still lives on through licenses.

The upcoming BlackBerry Krypton smartphone has been spotted with a carbon fiber body - which gives it a strong, durable body, as well as a very unique look. This not only gives the phone a unique look and feel in times where nearly every flagship device is coming out with a glass back, but it also gives a strong and secure back. However speculations in the past have indicated that the device will feature a full screen display. But from whatever can be seen though, TCL has played the specs of the Blackberry Krypton as close to its collective chest.

If there's one thing that separates BlackBerry from other smartphones is the fact that it uses a physical keyboard.

The handset, now known as Krypton, packs a smaller camera lens than the KEYone and also relies on a single LED flash.

In terms of specifications, the Krypton is expected to carry a similar setup as KEYone, with either the Qualcomm's Snapdragon 625 or 626 processor inside and paired with 4 GB RAM. However, there's not fingerprint scanner on the back side, indicating a home button-cum-fingerprint scanner in the front.
