The New Blackberry Motion Specifications Review and Price.

Blackberry has just announced the launch of the new Blackberry Motion. The new Blackberry Motion runs on Android 7.1.1 (Nougat). Comparing to the modern android smartphone, there’s nothing so special than the blackberry motion.

Although, the 4000mah on the blackberry motion definitely knocks different blackberry smartphones out of the park. I assume this is a large improvement for blackberry. The battery at the movement should compete with different android smartphones however essentially, that is a midrange device from blackberry.

Apparently, the brand new blackberry motion is ip67 certified, providing dust and water-proof. Sure, you could go swimming with motion. It’s far water-proof for up to half-hour.

Blackberry Motion Specifications Review and Price


Available in just Black, the Blackberry Motion looks like the previous Z series. Blackberry’s negligence of avoiding to introduce new colours to their smartphone is quite disappointing. The 5.5-inch smartphone looks like the bigger version of Z10, with a home button.

The home button which has the blackberry logo which also doubles as a fingerprint scanner. The fingerprint scanner is invoked right now, and Hardware giants are incorporating it in their device. I knew Blackberry wouldn’t disappoint here.

There’s also a Blackberry logo at the back of the smartphone, with one rear camera mounted at the top left.


The Blackberry Motion spots 5.5-inch screen with a 71.0% screen-to-body ratio. The screen is an IPS LCD capacitive touchscreen showing over 16M colours With 1080 x 1920 pixels resolution, 16:9 aspect ratio and a pixel per inch density of 401, the display on the Motion will make your videos and games quite enjoyable.

Hardware and Software

This is the only feature on the Blackberry Motion that I’m really impressed with. Its CPU is a 2.0 GHz Octa-core Cortex-A53 and with a Qualcomm MSM8953 Snapdragon 625, this is going to be one fast device.

It also sports a GPU Adreno of 506 and 4GB of RAM, which lets you run large apps smoothly.

There’s a 32GB storage space which is upgradeable up to 256 GB with microSD.

The Motion runs smoothly on Android 7.1 (Nougat), and it is amazing seeing the Android family getting bigger every day. The fact that Nokia and Blackberry are now fully into Android smartphones.


The Blackberry Motion spots a 12MP rear HDR Camera with flash and phase detection autofocus for clearer photos. The rear camera also features geo-tagging, touch focus, face detection and panorama. There’s also an 8MP selfie camera for selfie lovers.


Its non-removable Li-Ion 4000 mAh battery can last you a day of heavy usage compared to other Blackberry smartphone.
