BlackBerry Motion is an All-Touch Smartphone

12 October 2017

Enterprise-focussed phones are vanishingly rare, and that's unlikely to change after BlackBerry Mobile gave its newest model the stealthiest launch possible.

The new full touchscreen BlackBerry Motion smartphone, will not be released in Australia according to TCL executives meeting in Singapore.

BlackBerry Mobile (which has the brand for most global markets) said only that the Motion would be available in two Gulf states - Saudi Arabia and the UAE.

The Motion - which recalls BlackBerry's name from 1982 to 2013, "Research In Motion" - isn't a consumer proposition, but plenty will value the long battery life and durability.

BlackBerry Motion will be available for purchase this month later for a price of Dh 1,699 in the United Arab Emirates.

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. It also happens to be the first of its kind (BlackBerry) to be made water and dust resistance. For security, the company has tucked in a fingerprint sensor on the front panel. It is powered by a Snapdragon 625 SoC processor with 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal storage, which is expandable up to 2TB via microSD card.

The battery of smartphone is truly incredible.
