It has become quite evident that BlackBerry doesn't anymore push for a physical keyboard like they did during its comeback.
Rumors that BlackBerry would release an all-touchscreen smartphone have been floating around since August, and today we're finally getting more details on the upcoming handset. With a 5.5-inch screen, the Motion packs a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels inside it.
On the camera front, the device sports a 12-megapixel rear camera with f/2.0 aperture, while for the front, there is an 8-megapixel front camera. The device comes with Android 7.1 Nougat out of the box. To keep the lights on, the device has a 4000mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 support for fast charging.
So far, the $450 Motion is only available in Middle Eastern markets.
The smartphone has been to designed for water and dust resistance with IP67 rating. There is 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage that can be further expandable via a MicroSD card slot.
Expected to have a battery life of up to 26 hours, it is pretty evident that the Motion can easily manage a day without the need of charging it, reported Engadget.
Rumours also suggest that the smartphone will have a home button with a fingerprint scanner - a feature that appears to be confirmed in Mr Blass' photo.
The BlackBerry KEYone cost £499 at launch and was available to buy in the United Kingdom at first from Selfridges and then the Carphone Warehouse. Their much vaunted DTEK by BlackBerry security software will also be present on the phone.
