BlackBerry Motion Smartphone Is Now Official

October 09 10:07 2017

It is called the BlackBerry Motion. Furthermore, the rumors are claiming that the device will launch this month. Earlier rumoured as Blackberry Krypton, the Blackberry Motion is a full-screen Blackberry smartphone with the front dominated by a 5.5-inch screen. The BlackBerry Motion is now official after being announced at the GITEX Technology Week. 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. In addition to that, Blackberry will also include all of their security features that we have seen in the previous phone, mainly the KEYone. Perhaps, the most surprising twist in the new Motion handset is the absence of BlackBerry signature physical keyboard. We compare the two phones in the spec department.

TCL and BlackBerry are releasing the Motion in a handful of markets at first, with other markets following in Q4 of 2017.

Reputed smartphone leakster Evan Blass has tweeted a render of the upcoming BlackBerry Motion Android smartphone. It ain’t bezel-free like most modern flagships, and will instead feature a physical home button with an embedded BlackBerry logo, and probably an integrated fingerprint scanner too. This is a huge shift and it signals how the next BlackBerry flagship will look like. The Motion, predictably, has the larger screen size. As expected, it’s effectively a KEYone without the keyboard. and a couple of extra perks. It not only shares numerous design elements with the KEYone but also comes with near-identical specifications. The limited edition gets 4GB RAM and 64GB native storage. The smartphone will run the Android Nougat 7.1 OS out of the box. There’s an 8-megapixel front facing camera with Selfie flash feature. The rear camera can record videos up to 4K resolution at max. A 4,000mAh battery ensures a quite impressive battery life. To keep the lights on, the device has a 4000mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support for fast charging.
