BlackBerry's Motion with a full touchscreen has leaked

Blackberry, in collaboration with its manufacturing partner TCL, has launched a new smartphone at GITEX in Dubai. The 5.5-inch Full HD screen that, together with the fact that it has no keyboard, makes it stand taller than its older KEYone sibling. The smartphone will first debut in the Middle East - UAE and Saudi Arabia with a price tag that will be around $460.

The processor fitted on the new BlackBerry Motion smartphone is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 SoC. The handset will include a 4,000mAh battery, 4GB of RAM, and 32GB storage capacity. The phone offers a 12MP rear-facing camera with an f/2.0 aperture, and an 8MP front-facing shooter. TCL also integrated a fingerprint scanner on the bottom front side that also operates as the home button. The Motion is running a customized take on Android 7.1 like its predecessor, and you'll get the same security-focused apps meant to make it business- and privacy-friendly.

As can be seen quite clearly in the render above, BlackBerry Motion doesn't follow the current "bezel-less" trend.

BlackBerry has taken the wraps off its latest smartphone called Motion. While the keyboard is gone the handset does still have a fingerprint sensor on its face.

The highlight of the Blackberry Motion is the 4000mAh battery inside, which is rated to deliver 32 hours of mixed usage. The Canadian smartphone brand has not yet revealed when it will bring the device to other markets.

Both BlackBerry Motion and KeyOne come with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box. BlackBerry KeyOne was a premium smartphone for the Indian market, priced at Rs 39,990, which puts it in the Apple iPhone, Samsung Galaxy S series, though the specifications didn't justify the pricing. In the US, the smartphone has been priced at Dh1,699 while in Saudi Arabia it will retail for 1,699 Riyal. Now there is no information on when the handset will launch in other markets.
