Blackberry launches Motion with full touch-screen, 4000mAh battery

BlackBerry Motion aka Krypton image leaks launch could be imminent

BlackBerry has a new flagship phone called the "Motion", and for the first time since Chinese electronics giant TCL took over the firm's smartphone business late previous year, it doesn't have a physical keyboard (we first saw the news via AndroidPolice).

Motion, unlike its predecessor, BlackBerry KEYone, will not come with a physical keyboard.

As expected, the BlackBerry Motion doesn't have a physical keyboard. Under the 5.5-inch screen is a 4,000mAh battery. The 5.5-inch display offers a Full HD resolution and a 401 ppi pixel density. The BlackBerry Motion runs on Qualcomm's wildly popular Snapdragon 625 mid-range octa-core SoC clocked at 2 GHz, with an Adreno 506 GPU.

The phone is water-resistant and brings a 12-megapixel rear camera tagged with a f/2.0 aperture, dual-tone LED flash and can record videos in 4K at 30fps. The smartphone is pre-installed with Android 7.1 Nougat and will be updated to Android 8.0 Oreo in the next year. It is priced at AED 1,699 in UAE and SAR 1,699 in Saudi Arabia (approximately $460 / Rs. 30,000). Now there is no information on when the handset will launch in other markets. BlackBerry has equipped the Motion with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. That aside, it has an 8MP front camera for selfies. That'll enable 50% rercharging in 40 minutes. The Motion will include a "home" button with a fingerprint reader, as well as an input jack terraced port USB Type-C.

BlackBerry is emphasising on battery life, security features and stable software. 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. The company says that it will roll out the BlackBerry Motion in other markets too, but as of now there is no timeline for India.
