It seems @evleaks’ information regarding the next BlackBerry phone was right on the money. The new handset Motion offers no surprises. It is the first water-resistant phone by BlackBerry. Manufactured by the Canadian company’s hardware partner TCL, the handset ditches the iconic keypad design for a full touchscreen.
The phone sports a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS screen. it is powered by the mid-range Snapdragon 625 chipset. The phone has got 4 GB RAM and 32 GB internal storage. You can add more storage via the expansion slot.
The phone comes with a customisable Convenience Key. You can assign a specific function to this key for quick access. In the latest iteration, it supports three different profiles.
Photography has never been a strong point for BlackBerry. Things look a little brighter this time around though, as the phone comes with Sony’s 12 MP IMX378 sensor. It is capable of recording 4K videos. Since it is a BlackBerry device, let’s say that you get an 8 MP front-facing camera for video conferencing.
The BlackBerry Motion is a dual-SIM handset. It runs Android Nougat out of the box. It relies on a fingerprint sensor for on-device security. The device will be available in the UAE and KSA starting today for an approximate price of Rs 30,000.
