What is The BlackBerry KRYPTON?

The KEYone hasn't been on the consumer market for very long, but we're already hearing rumours that the next device is currently pushing for release.

According to MMS configuration files discovered online, the BBD100-1 should be TCL's next swing at the BlackBerry. If accurate; it's an all-touch device packing a 1920x1080p display and a Snapdragon 625 or 626 processor. Taking the rumour further is CrackBerry forums member EndlessChatter who says the device also packs a 4,000mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, a "Home" button that doubles as a fingerprint scanner and an unsurprising price of around $599 CAD.

Following up with this forums member reveals that the information supposedly came from an Ontario launch party:

"I was at a launch party for the KEYone in Ontario, Canada yesterday. The guy from BlackBerry showed a concept image of the phone.

I Neglected to take any images of the presentation."

More interestingly, is that this device follows the line of being a DTEK50 upgrade of sorts. It will be interesting to see what BlackBerry Mobile shows the world next, but be sure to take the rumours with a grain of salt for the time being.

The rumour also brought a potential codename forward: KRYPTON. Something that sounds along the lines of recent element based devices like Mercury, Argon, Neon, etc.
