The Blackberry Motion is Official; IP67 and 4000mAh Battery Confirmed

BlackBerry'Krypton Motion Full Touch Android Smartphone Leaked

This is the fifth Android phone so far by BlackBerry, following the BlackBerry Priv, DTEK50, DTEK60, and the BlackBerry KEYOne.

The BlackBerry Motion is being built by Chinese manufacturer TCL. Unlike many smartphones launched in 2017, the device sports a standard 16:9 display with noticeable bezels on the top and bottom.

The BlackBerry Motion comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset, paired with an Adreno 506 GPU. But there are some significant additions that might help the device to be a level up. Also, BlackBerry Motion is supposed to be water resistant and be powered by a generous 4,000 mAh battery.

BlackBerry's added a Smart Convenience Key at the side of the device, allowing users to trigger open apps and functions that they most frequently use based on where they are and what they're doing. Pricing and other details are yet to be revealed. The Blackberry device is similar to the KeyOne launched in US. So we can expect Motion to be introduced in the western markets at a later stage.




The BlackBerry Motion is the brand's third smartphone with no physical keyboard, and running Android, after the DTEK50 and DTEK60 launched to lukewarm success in summer 2016. In terms of software, the handset runs on Android 7.1 Nougat operating system with BlackBerry's complete suite of security and privacy-related features.

The handset has been followed since its early days of development under the codename Krypton, but is officially now known as the Blackbery Motion. The camera is a 12 megapixel unit with a 1.55 micron sensor and f/2.0 lens.

The device features mid-range specifications but comes with water resistance (IP67 certification). Availability will initially be limited to the UAE, retailing for Dh1,699 and Saudi Arabia, retailing for 1,699 Riyal, which converts to about $460 Dollars.
