BlackBerry Announces The Motion With 4000 mAh Battery

As if to declare its intentions, the device was announced at the Middle East and Africa's premier technology exhibition, GITEX Technology Week, held annually in the Emirati city-state, Dubai.

The new device will follow Blackberry's KEYone Android handset, which was revealed in May. The smartphone is pre-installed with Android 7.1 Nougat and will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo in the next year. The handset also features a water resistant design with IP67 certification, a first for a BlackBerry device. Their much vaunted DTEK by BlackBerry security software will also be present on the phone.

Travelling further south showcases the Motion's USB Type-C port, a 3.5mm headphone jack, and bottom-firing speakers. As of now, there is no information about the sale of this device in other markets.

The BlackBerry Motion is rumoured to have a release date this month.

Not too many details are know about the BlackBerry Motion, though if one goes by the leaks this will have a full touchscreen. It sports a 5.5-inch HD (720×1280 pixels) display with DragonTrail Glass protection and a physical home button below the display.

The Motion - formerly known as the "Krypton" - is TCL's latest BlackBerry gadget since acquiring the early noughties smartphone giant. The power-efficient Snapdragon 625 chipset is present under the hood of the phone along with 4 GB of RAM.

For photography, the BlackBerry Motion is fitted with a f/2.0 aperture 12-megapixel snapper. There is an 8MP front camera with selfie shooter. With 40 minutes of charge, the battery can charge up to 50%. There's also a fingerprint sensor embedded in the home button which makes it easier to unlock or to confirm purchases from your phone.

"Once again TCL Communication has delivered on their promise, to produce a true BlackBerry device that will meet and exceed expectations", said Alex Thurber, SVP and GM of Mobility Solutions, BlackBerry.
