Following a press conference at GITEX Technology Week in Dubai, Blackberry unveiled their latest handset, the all-touchscreen Blackberry Motion.

Yup, that means there’s nary a keyboard in sight on the Nougat-powered Android phone, which also boasts an impressive 4,000mAh battery, dual-SIM tray (a first for the company) and fingerprint sensor on the front.

Positioned more as a mid-ranged device, it runs a similar Qualcomm Snapdragon processor to the recently released KEYOne, sports a 5.5in Full HD display and an IP67 rating which means it’s waterproof and hardy against more stressful weather conditions.

The phone is priced at US$460 and expected to hit the market by the end of October.
