BlackBerry's new Motion smartphone launches with no keyboard and a 4000mAh battery

Blackberry Motion leaked, comes without a physical keyboard

The BlackBerry Motion is apparently a KEYone without the physical keyboard.

As we can see in the image, the company has chose to do away with the physical keyboard and stuck to the soft-keyboard which is somewhat more favourable to the majority of the people. There's a home button on the front with the BlackBerry logo that doubles as a fingerprint scanner. It is also the last BB phone, so far, to sport BlackBerry's iconic QWERTY keyboard. Instead, the Motion flaunts a 5.5-inch LCD touchscreen display.

The BlackBerry Motion comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 chipset, paired with an Adreno 506 GPU.

It features a 12MP rear camera with a f/2.0 aperture, dual-tone LED flash. A customized version of Android 7.1 will be pre-installed, but BlackBerry says it will update this to 8.0 Oreo in 2018, though it didn't give any specific times. The Blackberry Motion will be the first TCL phone with water resistance, and a large 4000mAh battery. The smartphone will first debut in the Middle East - UAE and Saudi Arabia with a price tag that will be around $460.

The BlackBerry KEYone cost £499 at launch and was available to buy in the United Kingdom at first from Selfridges and then the Carphone Warehouse. The phone is also water proof with an IP67 rating. That aside, it has an 8MP front camera for selfies.

Chinese smartphone manufacturer, TCL has released the BlackBerry Motion handset in its hometown market.

Alongside the battery, the phone comes with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, which enables up to a 50% charge in roughly 40 minutes using a USB Type-C charger. It also houses a fingerprint sensor. The company is calling its operating system BlackBerry Secure, which will come with all security features that are available with a BlackBerry-branded smartphone.
