TCL announced Tuesday that the BlackBerry Motion will be available in Canada from November 10 online at Koodo and in select Bell, TELUS and SaskTel stores starting at $99 CAD on a two-year term.

Steve Cistulli, President and General Manager for TCL Communication, North America said,

“Working with our partners in Canada to launch our newest BlackBerry smartphone gives us the opportunity to bring our expanded portfolio to this important market, delivering new experiences while remaining steadfast with legendary privacy, reliability and productivity that have made BlackBerry so iconic over the years,”

“The BlackBerry Motion is an exciting addition to our growing BlackBerry smartphone portfolio in North America, and it sets a strong foundation for additional portfolio growth in this region in the years to come.”

Alex Thurber, SVP and GM of Mobility Solutions, BlackBerry said,

“Once again TCL Communication has delivered on their promise, to produce a true BlackBerry device that will meet and exceed expectations,”

“We’re confident that customers, who are becoming increasingly aware of the importance of security and productivity on their smartphones, are going to enjoy the new BlackBerry Motion.”

This all-new BlackBerry smartphone continues the heritage of offering customers the best in reliability, productivity, privacy and security. BlackBerry Motion is also the first BlackBerry smartphone to offer IP67 water and dust resistance, a new anti-scratch display technology, and the largest battery ever in a BlackBerry.

The BlackBerry Motion ia an all touchscreen device featuring a 5.5-inch full HD display, 4GB RAM and a 4,000mAh battery with QuickCharge 3.0 support and is rated IP67 for dust and water resistance.

In addition to the IP67 water and dust resistant rating and the new 5.5-inch Full-HD Premium Anti-Scratch Display, the BlackBerry Motion features a hardened aluminum frame and soft-grip textured back to provide greater durability and protection for real life everyday use.

In addition to the IP67 water and dust resistant rating and the new 5.5-inch Full-HD Premium Anti-Scratch Display, the sleek purposeful-designed BlackBerry Motion features a hardened aluminum frame and soft-grip textured back to provide greater durability and protection for real life everyday use.

It also comes with the largest battery ever in a BlackBerry smartphone (4,000mAh), offering 32+ hours of mixed use.. When a charge is required, Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0 enables up to a 50 percent charge in roughly 40 minutes using a USB Type-C charger. Powered by Android 7.1 Nougat, this all-new BlackBerry smartphone gives customers access to the entire Google Play™ store and will receive monthly Andoid security updates. It will be upgraded to Android Oreo in the new year,

Like the BlackBerry KEYone, the BlackBerry Motion is designed with security built-in right from the start. This includes a hardened operating system and BlackBerry Limited’s proprietary technique for establishing a hardware root of trust and adding security keys to the processor. The BlackBerry Motion also comes with all the signature BlackBerry experiences that bring an unmatched level of efficiency to everything a customer does on the phone like BlackBerry Hub, BlackBerry Calendar, DTEK by BlackBerry and BlackBerry Boost charging.

New to this latest BlackBerry Smartphone is a personal Locker. With Locker, customers can store documents and photos to an internal storage area that requires the device owner’s PIN code or fingerprint to access. Locker Mode allows customers to capture images and directly save those photos to the internal storage area, so they are not automatically saved to a cloud.

Customers can also experience an improved customizable Convenience Key that brings even greater functionality and context to the quick-access physical key – unique to BlackBerry smartphones. This feature now includes four customizable profiles for Home, Car, Office and User, allowing for three different shortcut options that can be triggered by a home WiFi network, in-car Bluetooth, meetings that are synced to BlackBerry Hub or apps that are most commonly used. There is also a fingerprint sensor on the front of the device, which a doubles as a physical home button for added ease of use.
