Blackberry Motion Unveiled Officially: Find All Details Here

The new phone was first announced at the GITEX Technology Week now ongoing in Dubai, UAE.

Internal specifications of the Blackberry Motion are similar to the Blackberry KEYone (review), and even the rear panel of the Motion resembles KEYone. It will also have a 4,000 mAh battery. It seems that BlackBerry's newest offering is said to be the same KeyOne, minus the hardware keyboard. Apart from the Google Apps, the device also includes BlackBerry Hub, BlackBerry Calendar, and DTEK by BlackBerry apps.

The new gear has arrived in the form of the BlackBerry Motion, a device that is not much of a stranger thanks to the unavoidable chatter making rounds in tech blogs and social media aka the rumour mill. The BlackBerry Motion is the second phone built by TCL for BlackBerry through a licensing agreement, the first one being the KeyOne.

The new BlackBerry device, which was initially being called BlackBerry Krypton, had been in the pipeline since IFA 2017, Berlin.

We don't yet know when the Motion (if indeed that's the name) will be released. Instead the device will house a huge screen with a home button with a BlackBerry logo embedded. It sounds like a solid budget option all-in-all, enhanced with BlackBerry's security-focused blend of its own software and Android.

The device has a USB Type-C port for charging and a 4000mAh with support for fast charging technology gives the necessary power to the smartphone. The BlackBerry Motion is a mid-range smartphone that comes with an all-touch display, water-resistant chassis and huge battery. The BB Motion is running an Android 7.1 with a custom UI skin like the previous model. This is said to be out in the Middle East for Dh1,699 in UAE and 1,699 Riyal in Saudi Arabia (about $453) soon.

All the above-mentioned features require a battery, this time, the BlackBerry Motion has the biggest battery (in terms of capacity).

TCL is also building the Motion through an ongoing partnership with BlackBerry under the moniker, BlackBerry Mobile.
