BlackBerry Motion coming on January 12 in the US

Blackberry to launch two new smartphones in 2nd half of 2018

The BlackBerry Motion has been available in Europe and Canada previously and now the handset is coming to the US.

BlackBerry also announced a new Bronze color variant for the BlackBerry KEYone at the event: The Bronze Edition KEYone.

The handset will be available direct from BlackBerry in the United States from this Friday the 12th of January and it costs $450.

BlackBerry-branded smartphones from Chinese smartphone maker TCL may not be the top choice for every Android enthusiast, but it seems the phones got enough attention to warrant follow-ups. Starting January 12th, you'll be able to order the Snapdragon 625-powered Motion from Amazon or Best Buy here in America for $449.

"With new BlackBerry smartphones from TCL Communication now available in over 50 countries around the world, we have a solid foundation to continue building upon our portfolio in the new year". It sports a matte bronze look complemented by a textured black back panel, and drops the standard KEYone's microSD card slot in favor of a second SIM tray for dual-SIM capabilities.




Finally, the new BlackBerry smartphone features a convenience key, a new feature that provides a physical interface, which gives quick and easy access to four customizable profiles, for Home, Car, Office and User modes.

TCL's also bringing the previously launched BlackBerry Motion to USA shores and pricing it at $449.99.

However it goes further than that, with Alain Lejeune, Global General Manager for BlackBerry Mobile confirming that it will launch "at least two new phones" in 2018.

While TCL has refrained from indicating what devices we may see in 2018, users can expect numerous software updates, including a focus to bring Android 8.0 Oreo to BlackBerry devices.
