BlackBerry Motion officially announced

Last week emerged the first and only rumor about BlackBerry Krypton being officially named BlackBerry Motion and we didn’t expect that this phone to be announced so soon, but it happened.

TCL did promised at IFA Berlin that they will launch a new BlackBerry smartphone in October, but we expected it to happen later this month. Yet, BlackBerry Motion was announced and later this month it’ll hit stores in the Middle East.

BlackBerry Motion main specs:

The motion will only be available later in the month in the UAE and Saudi Arabia before it rolls out to “select global markets”. It is priced at about $460.
