Blackberry is ditching the keys once again with their new Motion smartphone. The physical keys from the KEYone have been 86'd for a traditional touchscreen experience and the phone will pack a Qualcomm 625 processor, 4GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 12MP camera, 5.5" 1080p display, IP67 water resistance, and a feature Blackberry fans will welcome with open arms: battery life. The phone will boast a huge 4,000mAh battery so you can leave those external packs at home and enjoy all-day usage. 

The official release date for the Motion in the US has yet to be determined.
