TCL has officially unveiled the BlackBerry Motion at GITEX Technology Week in Dubai, with the phone’s release date set for this month in the UAE. The Blackberry Motion is also coming to “select global markets” later this quarter.
This TCL-made Android-powered BlackBerry is the first dual-SIM BlackBerry device and features anti-scratch 5.5-inch full HD display, 4GB RAM, 4,000mAh battery with QuickCharge 3.0 support, and is rated IP67 for dust and water resistant.
“While the initial launch of our newest BlackBerry smartphone will be limited, this is an exciting addition to our growing BlackBerry smartphone portfolio, setting a strong foundation for further portfolio and market growth in the years to come,” said Alain Lejeune, global general manager for BlackBerry Mobile.
There is no word yet on Canadian availability, however, BlackBerry Mobile stated in an earlier press release that another BlackBerry smartphone will launch in Canada before the end of the year.
The BlackBerry Motion could very well be that smartphone.
