New BlackBerry Motion video promises "32+ hours of battery life" in a phone that's built to last

Not long after we saw the very first official BlackBerry Motion promo video, we're now treated with a second look at this interesting, yet to be released smartphone. As you can see above, BlackBerry Mobile says the Motion is a device that's built to last, as it's got a strong aluminum frame, a "premium" anti-scratch display, and a dust- and water-resistant design (IP67-certified). 

Equally important, BlackBerry promises "32+ hours of battery life" from the 4000 mAh battery that's found inside the Motion - hopefully, this means that, on a single charge, the phone will keep its lights on for more than a day even in the hands of the most demanding users out there.


The new promo video further showcases the security you'll be getting on the BlackBerry Motion - thanks to features like Locker Mode, Privacy Shade, and BlackBerry's DTEK security suite. There's also mention of all the apps that you'll have access to, as the new device runs Android 7 Nougat (with an update to Android 8 Oreo guaranteed).


While the Motion is already available to pre-order in the Middle East, for now, the handset doesn't show up on BlackBerry Mobile's US website. However, rumor has it that the smartphone will be released via at least three US carriers (Verizon, AT&T, Sprint), although it's not clear exactly when this should happen. In any case, we'll be here to let you know when and for how much the BlackBerry Motion launches stateside.
