BlackBerry officially unveiled its new smartphone this week, dubbed the BlackBerry Motion.
Launched on Sunday (Oct. 8) at GITEX Technology Week in Dubai, the new smartphone ditches the brand’s familiar keyboard seen on past models. Instead, its all touchscreen.
The BlackBerry Motion sports a 5.5 inch HD LCD display and a Snapdragon 625 SoC processor, while also featuring 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, and a 4000mAh battery. Oh, and its IP67 water and dust resistance.
The screen has a full HD resolution, and the rear/front cameras are a 12-megapixel/8-megapixel combo.
BlackBerry claims the battery offers more than 32 hours of mixed use, while it also supports Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0, which means users can get a 50 percent charge in “roughly 40 minutes.” And, another feature users may like is that it features a 3.5mm headphone jack.
The Motion runs on Android 7.1 Nougat, while also featuring BlackBerry’s standard security and privacy features.
The BlackBerry Motion launches in limited numbers in the UAE and Saudi Arabia for around $463. A U.S. release date has not been announced.
