All-touch BlackBerry Motion stars in first promo video

Officially unveiled last Sunday, the BlackBerry Motion is one of the most interesting BlackBerry-branded smartphones to date, being the first to feature water resistance, as well as the first to pack a very generous 4000 mAh battery.


The Motion is already available to pre-order in the Middle East, but it has yet to make its way to Western markets. Until that happens, you may want to check out the very first promo video that showcases the handset. While the video - embedded above - is quite short, it offers a nice, clear look at the new smartphone from all sides, including the back (as you can see, this has a soft touch texture for a better grip).


Thanks to a Qualcomm Snapdragon 625 processor and 4 GB of RAM, the BlackBerry Motion should provide a satisfying user experience. The handset sports a 5.5-inch 1080p display, further offering features like a fingerprint scanner, Locker Mode (for private photos and documents), a customizable Smart Convenience Key, standard 3.5mm headset jack, and a USB Type-C port. 


The BlackBerry Motion is launching with Android 7 Nougat out of the box, but it will be updated to Android 8 Oreo (however, this may not happen before the end of 2017). According to a recent report, the new smartphone should be released in the US via Verizon, Sprint, and AT&T, though this remains to be confirmed.    

Once it lands in the US, the BlackBerry Motion could cost around $400. From what you're seeing thus far, do you think you'll want to buy this new Berry?
