On specs front, the phone BlackBerry motion features a 5.5-inch Premium Anti-Scratch screen with a 1080 x 1920 resolution (FHD). Frankly, we have no clue about the chipset it could have inside, though, earlier rumors pitched for Snapdragon 625 SoC.

If that’s true, the Motion is equipped with an octa-core CPU coupled with the Adreno 506 GPU and 4GB of RAM is inside. Other features the phone can boast of include Quick Charge 3.0, and a fingerprint scanner and its hardened aluminum frame built body.
