The BlackBerry brand is making a huge return in 2017 thanks to the company’s new arrangement. While the companies that have licensed its brand are working on new smartphones, it has been diving into the software development waters, and so far, it is doing great. Three new phones — the KeyONE, Aurora and BlackBerry Motion — debuted last week.
The BlackBerry Motion was introduced initially in the Middle East and is already up for preorder in the UAE and Saudi Arabia, but we’ve finally learned the BlackBerry Motion price in other parts of the world.
The BlackBerry Motion price is fixed at $460 in the Middle East. However, the price tags in other markets are now available too. The new smartphone will cost £399 in the U.K., while in Europe the smartphone will be available for €469. The phone is expected to start shipping in the UK by the end of the month.
The BlackBerry Motion will be available only in black and features 4GB of RAM and 32GB of internal memory. If this isn’t enough for some users, the smartphone has a memory card slot too. It is good to see that Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 625, a power-friendly chipset, made its appearance in this smartphone too. We also hope to see enhanced battery life with the massive 4,000mAh battery.
The BlackBerry Motion will ship with Android 7.1. However, BlackBerry made sure to add security patches that will make the system more stable and secure. EU customers will have a 24-month warranty on the phone.
The most prominent highlight of the BlackBerry Motion is that it gets rid of the physical keyboard, which is a main feature of the BlackBerry KEYone. The BlackBerry logo is etched into the fingerprint sensor, which is located on the front of the smartphone.
The BlackBerry Motion is equipped with a QuickCharge 3.0-compatible USB Type-C port. Although BlackBerry had a hard time keeping up with the competition from Google, Apple and Samsung, we believe that the company’s management will bring the company to the top.
