As we can see in the image, the company has made a decision to do away with the physical keyboard and stuck to the soft-keyboard which is somewhat more favourable to the majority of the people. There is also a fingerprint scanner on the front side. The new handset is another BlackBerry that does away with the traditional keyboard, but keeps the new features of the KeyOne - and adds a few more.
The dual-SIM smartphone sports a 5.5-inch HD display with 720 x 1280 pixel resolution protected by DragonTrail Glass. The BlackBerry Motion is a mid-range smartphone that comes with an all-touch display, water-resistant chassis and huge battery.
The BlackBerry Motion will be initially available in Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates (UAE) for the moment, with a price equivalent to about $460 (Rs 30,000 approximately). There's no word on availability in the U.S.
Mohammad Amir ruled out of Pakistan ODI series against Sri Lanka
Yasir Shah took 6-184 to lead the way for Pakistan's bowling attack, his fifth five-wicket haul in as many Tests. Not only did he score runs but also displayed the elegance that is often a trademark of a left-handed batsman.
The BlackBerry Motion is an all-touch smartphone created to "empower the most challenging, on-the-go lifestyle". There is 4GB of RAM and 32GB of onboard storage that can be further expandable via a MicroSD card slot. The selfie cam is an 8 megapixel f/2.2 shooter.
The launch of this new Android-powered smartphone is very much welcome but initial launch will be limited according to BlackBerry Mobile's Global General Manager Alain Lejeune. The Motion features a fingerprint sensor on the front, embedded in the Home button. It is claimed that this battery can be charged from zero to 50% in just 40 minutes and give up to two days of backup under moderate usage.
As usual, the BlackBerry Motion gets a host of security features built-in along with its productivity apps such as BlackBerry Hub, BlackBerry Calendar, DTEK and BlackBerry Boost charging.
