BlackBerry Motion Smartphone Is Now Official

10 October 2017

BlackBerry has again launched a new Android smartphone made by TCL.

The BlackBerry Motion looks very similar to the BlackBerry KEYone.

It has become quite evident that BlackBerry doesn't anymore push for a physical keyboard like they did during its comeback. There's a home button on the front with the BlackBerry logo that doubles as a fingerprint scanner.

The handset has been followed since its early days of development under the codename Krypton, but is officially now known as the Blackbery Motion.

Southgate calls for England support
The Arsenal man has not been in an England squad since last November, but has impressed in his recent performances for Arsene Wenger's side.

The BlackBerry Motion bestows a 5.5-inch Premium Anti-Scratch touchscreen display with a FHD 1080p resolution.

As for optics, the smartphone features a 12MP camera on the back with an aperture of f/2.0 backed up by an 8MP selfie shooter.

Motion will run "hardened" Android Nougat 7.1 out of the box with "signature BlackBerry experiences" such as BlackBerry Hub, Calendar, DTEK and Boost charging.

The most impressive thing about the new Blackberry smartphone Motion is undoubtedly the battery which is a respectable 4000mAh with support for Quick Charge 3.0 and USB Type-C port. The smartphone will first debut in the Middle East - UAE and Saudi Arabia with a price tag that will be around $460. The smartphone will be carried by AT&T, Sprint and Verizon, and a dual-SIM version will be available in select markets (including China). This is the second device launched by TCL since it acquired rights to the BlackBerry brand previous year. For selfies, there's an 8-megapixel snapper up front. For the first time on a BlackBerry, the Motion has IP67 water resistance which is on par with the iPhone 7/8. By tasking TCL with manufacturing chores, BlackBerry frees itself to focus on software and enterprise-level security features.
