  • BlackBerry Motion Is Now Official with Android 7.1 and No Physical Keyboard

    Only a few days after it leaked online, the Android-powered BlackBerry Motion smartphone was made official earlier today by BlackBerry at the GITEX 2017 event that takes place these days in Dubai, UAE.

    At first glance, BlackBerry Motion appears to be a variant of the BlackBerry KEYone smartphone, but without a physical keyboard, which is a bit unusual for a BlackBerry phone. The device is powered by Google's Android 7.1 "Nougat" mobile OS and has some interesting specifications for a mid-range mobile phone.

    Featuring a gorgeous 5.5-inch Full HD 1080p display with minimum bezels and an IP67 certified water-resistant design, BlackBerry Motion is using a Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB internal storage, a 12MP f/2.0 rear camera, a fingerprint reader, and a giant, non-removable 4,000mAh battery that should last all day long.
