That happened quickly. Last week, an image of Blackberry Motion was leaked online, and today, the smartphone was officially by TCL Communications at the ongoing GITEX 2017 event.

The upcoming release of the BlackBerry Motion comes after the launch of the Blackberry KEYone back in April.

Krypton will a fullscreen display and no QWERTY keyboard, unlike the BlackBerry KEYone which came before it. The device also comes with a fingerprint scanner on the front section.

The launch also bears more good news for those being bogged down by the wireless trendsetters like Apple and Google, as the BlackBerry sports a 3.5mm headphone jack. Hence, the frontside of the phone is occupied by a premium anti-scratch LCD display of 5.5 inches that produces a full HD resolution of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels.

Motion is truly a mid-powered device with specifications including a Snapdragon 625 processor and 32GB storage paired with 4GB RAM.

Coming to the Camera specs, Blackberry Motion features 12MP rear camera with Sony IMX378 sensor, dual-tone LED Flash, f/2.0 aperture, PDAF. It is priced at AED 1,699 in UAE and SAR 1,699 in Saudi Arabia (approximately $460 / Rs. 30,000). The Canadian smartphone brand has not yet revealed when it will bring the device to other markets. BlackBerry and TCL are aiming for a limited launch, which practically means, for now, the Middle East. The BlackBerry Motion is juiced up by a 4000mAh battery which supports QuickCharge 3.0. That'll enable 50% rercharging in 40 minutes. The front shooter is a 8MP that comes with a selfie flash feature.

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.
