BlackBerry has announced during CES 2018 that its all-touchscreen Motion handset will arrive in the United States this month. After initially launching in other regions around the globe last year, the mid-range handset will officially become available to those Stateside on January 12th. It’ll cost $449 which, when considering what you get, isn’t such a bad value.

For reference, the Motion ships with IP67 water resistance, a 5.5-inch 1080p LCD display, a Snapdragon 625 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of internal storage, and a 12MP rear camera. There’s also a 4,000mAh battery that’s rechargeable over USB-C alongside Android 7.1.1 Nougat. An expected update to Oreo should arrive in the near future.

The Motion will become available at Best Buy and Amazon this month.


In other news, BlackBerry’s other Android-powered smartphone, the KeyOne, is getting a new bronze color scheme. While there isn’t anything else new in this case, it’ll come with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of storage. It’s set to launch in “select markets across AsiaEurope, and the Middle East” soon. No word yet on exact availability or pricing.
