After teetering on the brink of collapse a few years ago, BlackBerry is rebuilding itself with a TCL partnership to create Android smartphones that place an emphasis on security and enterprise features. As it fleshes out its offerings, the company’s latest smartphone is the BlackBerry Motion, a mid-range device that’s bound for the Middle East. With an all-touch design and an IP67 waterproof rating, the BlackBerry Motion is designed to “empower the most challenging, on-the-go lifestyle.”

Specs for the Motion include 5.5-inch 1080p display, Snapdragon processor, 4GB of RAM, dual SIM card slots, and a 4000mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support.

TCL and BlackBerry are releasing the Motion in select markets throughout the Middle East. Pricing is set at AED 1,699/SAR 1,699, which converts to about $460 USD, a respectable price for a mid-range smartphone. An initial launch in limited markets will begin in mid-October, with more markets being added during Q4.
