BlackBerry Motion: New Mid-Range Device Sans a Keyboard

October 9, 2017, By Sanjeev Ramachandran

It has become quite evident that BlackBerry doesn’t anymore push for a physical keyboard like they did during its comeback. After having got more than a couple of dull physical keyboard Android devices onto the market, the Canadian manufacturers are now pushing for devices without their trademark keyboard, of which the most recent one is the BlackBerry Motion.

Motion is BlackBerry’s newly launched mid-range device that comes with a full touch-screen form factor similar to the DTEK50 and DTEK50 devices that were launched in 2016. With a 5.5-inch screen, the Motion packs a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels inside it. Below the display is a physical home button that also doubles up as fingerprint sensor.

Motion is truly a mid-powered device with specifications including a Snapdragon 625 processor and 32GB storage paired with 4GB RAM. But there are some significant additions that might help the device to be a level up. Those include a hefty 4000mAh battery as well as an IP67 certification for water and dust resistance, something which can seldom be found on a mid-powered device.

Like usual, BlackBerry has given attention to improving the security of the device by loading more secure apps into the fine-tuned Android ecosystem. Pricing and other details are yet to be revealed.

The device has been announced in Dubai and will make its debut in the Middle East Markets. This is similar to how they introduced the KeyOne device earlier this year. So we can expect Motion to be introduced in the western markets at a later stage.
