Evan Blass tweets photo of Blackberry 'Motion' smartphone

BlackBerry Motion

As can be seen in the render below, the Motion doesn't feature particularly thin bezels on the front, although the top bezel is certainly thinner than the KeyOne.

It has become quite evident that BlackBerry doesn't anymore push for a physical keyboard like they did during its comeback.

On paper, the BlackBerry Motion that's also manufactured by TCL is quite similar in specs to the BlackBerry KEYone. It comes with a 5.5-inch LCD IPS (720×1280 pixels) touch-screen display with DragonTrail Glass protection and a fingerprint scanner placed at the bottom that doubles up as the home button. As for the cameras, the BlackBerry Motion offers a 12 MP primary camera and an 8 MP sensor for selfies and video calls. It runs on Android 7.1 (Nougat) with security-focused apps by BlackBerry. The phone is also backed by a massive 4,000mAh battery that has the capacity to power the phone to make it run for almost 26 hours with mixed usage. 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. There's no word on availability in the U.S.

One of the most exciting features of the new BlackBerry smartphone is that it comes with an IP67 certification, making it dust and water resistant.

The smartphone comes with 4GB RAM and 32GB storage.

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. It claims to charge up to 50% in 40 minutes and promises over 32 hours of battery life with mixed use. The overall look of the smartphone might be a little dated, however, it has a solid build which will definitely be to the liking of many BlackBerry fans.

For the past couple of years BlackBerry has joined forces with Android to launch few smartphones with some company exclusive features. Their much vaunted DTEK by BlackBerry security software will also be present on the phone.
