The biggest USP of the upcoming BlackBerry Motion smartphone is that it will feature an all-screen front panel. The new Motion aims to take that further with an even larger 4,000mAh unit that is rated to push 32 hours of mixed use. It's making a go of things with Android, and it looks like a new full-touch-screen BlackBerryAndroid phone is on the way. Below the display, we see a home button with an embedded BlackBerry logo inside.
As soon as we get some more information about this new Motion smartphone from BlackBerry, including a full list of specifications, we will let you guys know. The BlackBerry Motion is the second phone built by TCL for BlackBerry through a licensing agreement, the first one being the KeyOne. BlackBerry's code names are always better than the retail branding-the KEYone was "Mercury" and the Priv was "Venice". The Motion comes preinstalled with all of the BlackBerry security enhancements and apps, including the DTEK, BlackBerry Hub, BlackBerry Calendar and more. It still charges via USB Type-C and it has support for Quick Charge 3.0. According to Gadget 360, the smartphone will offer 4GB of RAM and will be powered by Qualcomm'sSnapdragon 625 chipset. On the camera front, TCL has not gone for any fancy dual rear option and stuck with a 12MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture for the BlackBerry Motion.
Still, BlackBerry Motion may encounter an uphill battle in North America and European markets.
The KEYone boasts a QWERTY keyboard alongside a touchscreen display and costs $549.99 (£428.21). It also has a Convenience Key that has four customizable profiles such as Home, Office, Car and User.
Last month we told you BlackBerry's first water-resistant smartphone was in the pipeline. According to AndroidCentral, the BlackBerry Motion will be priced at about $460, and will be available first in Middle Eastern markets such as U.S. and Saudi Arabia.
