BlackBerry, earlier called Research in Motion, is a Canadian smartphone-maker that made a name selling QWERTY devices, but is struggling to stay relevant in a world dominated by iOS and Android. After years of backing its own BB OS, the company has decided to make an Android smartphone in a bid to grab a small chunk of the smartphone pie it used to dominate. BlackBerry's latest mobile launch is the Motion. The smartphone was launched in October 2017. The phone comes with a 5.50-inch touchscreen display with a resolution of 1080 pixels by 1920 pixels at a PPI of 403 pixels per inch.
The BlackBerry Motion is powered by 2GHz octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor and it comes with 4GB of RAM. The phone packs 32GB of internal storage that can be expanded up to 200GB via a microSD card. As far as the cameras are concerned, the BlackBerry Motion packs a 12-megapixel primary camera on the rear and a 8-megapixel front shooter for selfies.
The BlackBerry Motion runs Android 7.1.1 and is powered by a 4000mAh non removable battery. It measures 155.70 x 75.40 x 8.13 (height x width x thickness) .
The BlackBerry Motion is a single SIM (GSM) smartphone that accepts a Nano-SIM. Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, USB OTG, 3G and 4G. Sensors on the phone include Compass Magnetometer, Proximity sensor, Accelerometer, Ambient light sensor and Gyroscope.
