While that one had a physical keyboard, the BlackBerry Motion has ditched it.

BlackBerry has unveiled its new flagship phone that goes all-in on the touchscreen and dumps the vendor's usual physical keyboard. TCL launched the handset over the weekend and it looks exactly what the images suggested it would look like. "Over at the front, it gets a 5.5" Full HD IPS display with DragonTrail Glass on top. Instead the device will house a huge screen with a home button with a BlackBerry logo embedded. The smartphone embarquerait a Qualcomm Snapdragon processor 625, the same that animates the KEYone, with a 4 Gb RAM, placing it in the middle of the range in terms of computing power. But there are some significant additions that might help the device to be a level up.

The device also has a generous 4000 milliampere battery and an IP67 water resistance level. Since this is a BlackBerry, you'll want a device that can work all day. Pricing and other details are yet to be revealed. So we can expect Motion to be introduced in the western markets at a later stage.

Apple looks into two reports of iPhone 8 Plus splitting open
Another fault was also reported when a Japanese user posted photographs of his iPhone 8 Plus on Twitter on September 24. Now Apple has started selling an iPhone attachment with both a 3.5mm audio port and a lightning port.

Designed as a mid-range smartphone, the BlackBerry Motion is distinguished by its autonomy, among the highest in the market.

Optics wise, the smartphone has a 12MP rear camera with f/2.0 aperture and dual-tone LED flash. It is the first water-resistant phone by BlackBerry.

It also comes backed by a 4,000mAh which is mentioned to give up to 32 hours of mixed usage. There is an 8MP front camera with selfie shooter. It relies on a fingerprint sensor for on-device security. "We do not have any plans today to bring [the BlackBerry Priv] to Nougat", said Alex Thurber, general manager of BlackBerry Mobility Solutions in a podcast conversation with UTB Blogs website last month.
