BlackBerry Motion Smartphone Is Now Official

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

This device follows the KEYone smartphone that released earlier this year.

From the picture, we can see the BlackBerry Motion retains the 3.5mm headphone jack and features a traditional home button. It is built with a hardened aluminum frame and a soft textured back with a carbon fiber pattern.

By default, BlackBerry Motion 7 runs on Android and upgrade to Android 8 finished only next year.

With a sober design, the Motion, the last-born child of a Canadian BlackBerry, deliberately made the impasse on the physical keyboard, which was his trademark.

The Locker Mode will let users store documents and photos in the device's internal storage and can be accessed only with the PIN code or user's fingerprint.

There is a new feature called the Convenience Key which has four customizable profiles: Home, Car, Office, and User.

The smartphone comes loaded with a full touchscreen display and it sports a 5.5-inch Full HD screen with 1920 x 1080 pixels. It is powered by 64-bit Snapdragon 625 octa-core processor clocked at 2.0GHz. It supports dual SIM dual standby and comes with 4G LTE connectivity. It is capable of recording 4K videos. While the front-facing camera is an 8MP shooter with f/2.2 aperture.

With the 5.5-inch screen comes a 4,000 mAh battery. It's also blessed it with a bigger 4000mAh battery and IP67-rated protection against dust and water. For now, there is no mention from the company regarding the available of the device in the global markets. Since BlackBerry has so far stayed away from water resistance with its devices, the Motion is actually the first BlackBerry-branded smartphone to be water resistant.
