BlackBerry Motion presented as "unstoppable" in new promo video


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


The newest BlackBerry Motion promo video - embedded above -presents the smartphone as being "unstoppable" and "made to livein the real world." That's because, besides dust- and water-resistance,the handset offers a "premium anti-scratch" screen (a 5.5-inch panelwith 1080 x 1920 pixels), a solid aluminum frame, and a 4,000 battery that canprovide over 32 hours of usage on a single charge. Furthermore, the Motion comes with variousBlackBerry-specific security features, including Locker Mode (helping youkeep 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'swhy it could cost around $400 in the US. For that kind of money, the handsetseems to be quite nice.


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