BlackBerry officially quit the smartphone business nearly exactly a year ago, but the brand name lives on in new devices thanks to a licensing deal with Chinese company TCL.

The BlackBerry Motion looks very similar to the BlackBerry KEYone.

The former king of the high-end cell phone has just introduced the first-ever BlackBerry with no physical keyboard. Thus, the screen size has increased and now the front includes two capacitive keys and a home button that doubles as a fingerprint scanner.

Specifications wise, the Blackberry Motion comes with a 5.5-inch Full HD display with a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels. Instead, the Motion flaunts a 5.5-inch LCD touchscreen display. It also has a Snapdragon 625 octa-core SoC running at 2GHz, with an Adreno 506 GPU.

The phone is water-resistant and brings a 12-megapixel rear camera tagged with a f/2.0 aperture, dual-tone LED flash and can record videos in 4K at 30fps.

The BlackBerry KEYone launched with Android 7.1 Nougat and also boasted BlackBerry's own DTEK security software.

Starting from today, the BlackBerry Motion is available on pre-orders in UAE with a pricing of Dh 1,699 (~$462) and in Saudi Arabia for 1,699 Riyal (~$453).

Visuals posted on social media by passengers and their friends showed extensive damage to the front of the outer starboard engine. No-one was hurt as the pilots landed in Goose Bay , in Canada's easternmost province just after 3.30pm on Saturday, local time.

If past releases are anything to go by, the BlackBerry Motion could have a release date in some markets before its worldwide launch.

The BlackBerry Motion is being built by Chinese manufacturer TCL.

The highlight of the Blackberry Motion is the 4000mAh battery inside, which is rated to deliver 32 hours of mixed usage.

BlackBerry Motion is the first BlackBerry phone to come with IP67 rating.
