Currently, no information is there about the BlackBerry's phone availability for the U.S. market or about its possible cost. The handset is an touch-only smartphone without the firm's old-school physical keyboard, but it packs an impressive 5.5in 1080p LCD display. There's 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage coupled with a microSD card slot, a 4,000 mAh battery and ships with Android 7.1 Nougat as its operating system. That particular combo might prick a few ears; sure, it's not the most up-to-date or powerful chip, but it's reasonably competent and, importantly, combined with that huge battery it should offer battery life for days. It also boasts an 8MP front facing camera with a selfie flash feature.

Motion, BlackBerry's newly introduced smartphone is now available for pre-orders, officially announced by the company. The ascent of the iPhone broadly wiped out Blackberry's cell phone market share, yet the organizations rotate towards mobile security has been a productive one, with its current quarterly profit report surpassing expectations. BlackBerry is yet to reveal North American availability, if any.

The United Arab Emirates is the first country where the smartphone could be pre-ordered, as this was informed earlier that Blackberry's Motion would first be released in the Middle East.
