TCL officially launches its BlackBerry Motion with 4,000mAh battery


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.

As you might notice from the image, the new Motion is quite different from the BlackBerry KEYone, devoid of a physical keyboard, flaunting its 5.5-inch touchscreen display. The handset is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor, offers 4GB RAM, and has an IP67 rating against moisture and dust.

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.
