TCL debuted the Blackberry Motion just about some hours ago, featuring a 5.5-inch FHD touchscreen with Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM and 12-megapixel/8-megapixel cameras.
The device, unfortunately, runs on Android 7.1 Nougat but can be upgraded to Oreo in the coming year, according to the maker. The BlackBerry Motion is provided with IP67 water and dust resistance and boasts of a large 4,000mAh battery with Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 3.0 that can supposedly charge the device up to 50% in 40 minutes.
