Chinese phone maker TCL has launched the BlackBerry Motion smartphone, its highly-anticipated new Android smartphone as the company looks for a slice of the market share with the iconic brand name. The BlackBerry Motion is similar to the KEYOne smartphone, which the company had launched earlier this year.

The BlackBerry Motion is a mid-range dual-SIM Android 7.1.1 Nougat smartphone. It sports a 5.5-inch HD (720x1280 pixels) display with DragonTrail Glass protection and a physical home button below the display. It is powered by a Snapdragon 625 SoC processor with 4GB of RAM. The handset has 32GB of inbuilt storage, expandable via microSD card (up to 2TB) should you want more space.

Also in the offering are a considerably larger 4000mAh non-removable battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support, and a USB Type-C port. The water-resistant BlackBerry Motion features a 12-megapixel rear camera with a f/2.0 aperture, dual-tone LED flash capability and ability to record videos in 4K at 30fps. There's an 8-megapixel front facing camera with Selfie flash feature. There is also a fingerprint scanner on the front side.

The BlackBerry Motion also features a range of security suites that smartphones from the iconic Canadian company have grown known for. There's DTEK security suite feature on the device, and it also features support for FIPS 140-2 Full Disk Encryption, Android For Work, and Google Play for Work features.


The phone was unveiled at Technology Week conference in Dubai over the weekend. According to AndroidCentral, the BlackBerry Motion will be priced at about $460, and will be available first in Middle Eastern markets such as UAE and Saudi Arabia.
