China-based phone manufacturer TCL, the company that holds the rights to manufacture all BlackBerry phones, has launched a new BlackBerry phone, named the BlackBerry Motion. The smartphone launched at the Gulf Information Technology Expo (GITEX) event in Dubai, is very similar to the BlackBerry KEYone. However, one notable feature missing from the device is the QWERTY keypad.

Coming to the specifications, the BlackBerry Motion is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC clocked at 2 GHz and paired with 4GB of RAM. The phone runs on Android 7.1 Nougat which will be upgraded to Android Oreo soon and comes with 32GB of internal storage. It features a 5.5- inch LCD IPS touch-screen display with the fingerprint scanner at the bottom which doubles up as a home button.

In terms of optics, the device has a 12-megapixel primary camera with a f/2.0 aperture and an 8-megapixel selfie camera. The phone is backed by a 4,000 mAH battery that is enough for the device to last a whole day. The device comes with an IP67 rating which means the device can survive for up to 3.3 meters underwater for nearly 30 minutes. The device has a USB Type-C port with fast charging capabilities.


The BlackBerry Motion has a unique feature called the ‘Convenience Key’ which acts as a shortcut access to four options- Home, Car, Office and User. The device is priced at $460 (Rs 30,000 approx) and will initially come to the middle eastern countries such as UAE and Saudi Arabia. However, there are no details regarding launch in other countries.
