BlackBerry hasn't launched a water-resistant smartphone yet, so the Motion will actually be the first BlackBerry-branded smartphone to be water and dust resistant with an IP67 certification. The phone will come to market as the BlackBerry Motion, and it resembles the popular KEYone in many ways.
In addition, the BlackBerry Motion include USB Type-C port, dual-SIM support, and a microSD card slot.
BlackBerry has not revealed any information regarding this phone. However, from the looks of it, we can make out that the device doesn't sport a physical QWERTY keypad and likely sports a 5-inch screen. The aforementioned touchscreen is reportedly Full HD (1,920 x 1,080 pixels) in resolution, and the battery is 4,000mAh (about 500mAh larger than the BlackBerry KeyOne's power pack). The Motion will also use the DTEK security software. Can the Motion continue BlackBerry's momentum after the KEYone? Moreover, the upcoming smartphone is expected to back by a 4000mAh battery with 26 hours of battery life.
New to this latest BlackBerry Smartphone is a personal Locker. Locker Mode allows customers to capture images and directly save those photos to the internal storage area, so they are not automatically saved to a cloud. It could be used to trigger open an app or perhaps an AI assistant like Samsung's Bixby. The fingerprint scanner is located at the bottom-front with BlackBerry logo embedded in it. It seems that the device will be launching sometime this month, but there is a possibility that the phone could be released in other markets before its official unveiling in the global market.
