BlackBerry is interestingly set to bring the Motion handset first to the Middle Eastern markets, including the UAE and Saudi Arabia, with a price tag of almost US$460 (approximately SG$628).

Carrier Axiom Telecom has listed the BlackBerry Motion smartphone for AED 1,699, nearly $460.

Currently, no information is there about the BlackBerry's phone availability for the United States market or about its possible cost.

However, Hua said: "The Chinese government will continue to safeguard its territorial sovereignty and maritime entitlements". China has protested sailing of a US Navy ship near South China Sea , terming it a violation of Chinese sovereignty.

The handset ships with a 5.5-inch display sporting a resolution of 1920 by 1080 pixels resolution with a Snapdragon 625 processor under the hood. The display is indeed not as remarkable as the one on Samsung's Galaxy S8 or Apple's iPhone X. Nevertheless, it has enough space to fulfill the absence of the QWERTY keyboard that has so far been giving BlackBerry an edge over popular smartphone models.

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.

BlackBerry Motion is IP67 rated, which makes it dust and water resistant.

It is claimed that this battery can be charged from zero to 50% in just 40 minutes and give up to two days of backup under moderate usage. The device is powered by Google's Android 7.1 "Nougat" mobile OS and has some interesting specifications for a mid-range mobile phone.
