Blackberry Motion debuts without a keyboard

Update: New video gives a first look at the Motion in action

At GITEX Technology Week in Dubai, TCL debuted its newest addition to the BlackBerry family, the mid-range BlackBerry Motion. This time, there's no keyboard, so it may have a tough time standing out. Here's what it has to offer, plus a newly released official video that gives us a first look at the phone in action.

Highlight recent changes

The most notable thing about the new BlackBerry is that it has no keyboard. The BlackBerry Motion's specs are, for the most part, unremarkable. As is standard issue for a mid-range smartphone, it comes with a Snapdragon 635 processor, 4 GB of RAM and 32 GB of expandable internal storage. The main camera has 12 MP and an aperture of f/2.0, while the front selfie shooter has 8 MP.

There are a few things which stand out on the specs sheet that might sway you, though. It has an IP67 dust and water resistance rating, dual SIM capability and a large 4,000 mAh battery that will surely keep the 5.5-inch Full HD LCD display going all day long.

Regarding the design of the device, we've now gotten a first look at the Motion in motion. BlackBerry has just released a video showing off the phone's design from all angles and a few software features. It's especially apparent from this promo that the build quality and texture of the phone will be pleasing to the eye and to the touch. Watch it below:

Sadly, if you're in the US, you're out of luck for now. The launch will be limited to the Middle East, with pre-orders going for the equivalent of about $460 now, with unspecified select markets to follow. 

What do you think of the Motion? Are you convinced by the huge battery and IP rating?
