One is the massive 4,000 mAh battery that, given its specs, will surely last most users more than a day. There's also a Convenience Key that works more than a shortcut key because it allows users to actually customize four different profile pages for Home, Car, Office and User.

BlackBerry Motion comes with 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD display with DragonTrail Glass protection. The BlackBerry Motion runs on Qualcomm's wildly popular Snapdragon 625 mid-range octa-core SoC clocked at 2 GHz, with an Adreno 506 GPU. The water-resistant BlackBerry Motion features a 12-megapixel rear camera with a f/2.0 aperture, dual-tone LED flash capability and ability to record videos in 4K at 30fps. Comes with Android 7.1, the BlackBerry Motion will the security suite DTEK and he will benefit from all the optimizations home of Blackberry.

The BlackBerry Motion is an all-touch smartphone created to "empower the most challenging, on-the-go lifestyle".

The Motion is made by Chinese tech giant TCL Communications, which bought BlackBerry branding rights.

The device has a USB Type-C port for charging and a 4000mAh with support for fast charging technology gives the necessary power to the smartphone. There's an 8-megapixel front facing camera with Selfie flash feature. It also houses a fingerprint sensor. With 40 minutes of charge, the battery can charge up to 50%. By tasking TCL with manufacturing chores, BlackBerry frees itself to focus on software and enterprise-level security features.
