BlackBerry Motion presented as "unstoppable" in new promo video

Announced in early October as the first dust- and water-resistant BlackBerry phone ever, the all-touch BlackBerry Motion is not yet available in the US. But we assume the handset will be launched stateside soon, as BlackBerry Mobile keeps on releasing promo videos showcasing its features.


The newest BlackBerry Motion promo video - embedded above - presents the smartphone as being "unstoppable" and "made to live in the real world." That's because, besides dust- and water-resistance, the handset offers a "premium anti-scratch" screen (a 5.5-inch panel with 1080 x 1920 pixels), a solid aluminum frame, and a 4,000 battery that can provide over 32 hours of usage on a single charge. Furthermore, the Motion comes with various BlackBerry-specific security features, including Locker Mode (helping you keep photos and documents private).   


The BlackBerry Motion can't be considered a high-end phone, as it's powered by Qualcomm's mid-range Snapdragon 625 processor, but that's why it could cost around $400 in the US. For that kind of money, the handset seems to be quite nice.


Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint are all expected to sell the BlackBerry Motion, though we've yet to get an official confirmation on this. At launch, the smartphone will run Android Nougat out of the box, with an update to Android 8 Oreo planned for later. Interested?
