Take A Closer Look at the BlackBerry Motion

Motion

Dubai’s GITEX Technology Week saw some interesting propositions in regards to new products. This time, we are going to take a look at one presented yesterday by Blackberry. Which interestingly ditches the Keyboard the Blackberry phones were known for entirely. All to make way to an “All-Screen” kind of phone. The name of the new phone is Motion and it’s manufactured by TCL under the Blackberry brand.

The Motion has a 5.5-inch screen and is going to run on a Snapdragon 625 SoC Platform. With an initial retail value of $460 USD. This phone will be available first on Middle Eastern regions, however. Since no date for an American release has been revealed thus far.

The new phone will have a 12MP Camera, 4GB of RAM and will support Multitouch inputs. It will also sport an Android 7.1 OS and an Octa-core 2.0 GHz Cortex-A53 CPU. The phone will also sport an Adreno 506 GPU and an 8MP Front Camera. The SD card can be amped up all the way to 256GB, and will have 32GB of Internal storage.  Guess what Google? It will also have a 3.5 mm. Headphone jack.

Some more interesting capabilities are showing up about this new phone as well. The phone will sport a Type-C USB Connector. And it will also come with various sensors all over it. These sensors include your basics like the Gyroscope, Proximity Sensor, Compass and Accelerometer. But the main gig is a Front-Mounted Fingerprint sensor that will be accurate to the point.

The biggest drawing point is the fact that the screen is entirely Touch instead of having an integrated keyboard. Unlike the Blackberry KEYOne counterpart, which has a keyboard under the touchscreen. Not to mention, the gigantic 4,000 mAh battery it will be sporting. Let’s make a short comparison to the Galaxy S8+ which has a 3,500 mAh battery, in other words. It will be having more battery power and thus, more battery life.

Seems like an interesting move by TCL, ditching the keyboard entirely to dedicate the phone to the core-users of Smartphones. However, let’s try and be patient to the North American release and see how the new phone fares in comparison to other devices.

I always wanted to be a journalist who listens. The Voice of the Unspoken and someone heavily involved in the gaming community. From playing as a leader of a competitive multi-branch team to organizing tournaments for the competitive scene to being involved in a lot of gaming communities. I want to keep moving forward as a journalist.

Despite popular belief, PS4 sales in the UK skyrocketed last year

PS4 sales in the UK climbed by a shocking 633 percent year-over-year in 2023, so apparently the old system isn’t dead yet. The previous year’s very limited supply of the system is likely a major factor in this figure, since the console’s lifespan was drastically reduced because of chip shortages caused by the pandemic. Still, it’s proof that PlayStation’s original platform has unmet demand.

With the very low prices of PS4 software (both in-store and online at the PS Store), this strategy makes a lot of sense. Plus, it’s future-proof, so there’s no harm in stocking up on PS4s while new-gen pricing is still high, since if you decide to switch to a PS5 in the future, you can transfer all of your purchases across. Not to mention that the majority of new releases still come out on the PS4, with several offering free PS5 upgrades.

While the percentage rise may seem huge, real PS4 sales will probably be much lower. It’s a sign that the gadget, which is now a decade old, isn’t completely dead yet, and we expect it to keep receiving maintenance for a while longer. Of course, this is great news for Sony, because the company would rather have PS4 players playing on its last-gen gadget than none at all, even if it would love to have them upgrade to PS5.

A PS5 firmware update on a cold winter morning is unmatched. The latest PS5 system software update is 23.02–08.40.00 from Sony. Does this one add useful features or just boost system performance?

Though closer to the latter, it’s more than Sony’s favorite patch note. It fixes security issues, improves messages and usability, and boosts system software performance. Official patch notes for this 1.185GB update:

  • We updated system software security
  • We improved system software stability and performance
  • Some screens now have better messages and usability

That’s it. PS5 gets another win to recover from its midweek slump. Do you share our enthusiasm for this firmware update? Comment below. To spice things up, make your comment rhyme.

Belgian developer Larian Studios’ work on Baldur’s Gate 3’s Xbox Series S version will improve performance on all platforms, including PS5. The game’s fifth major patch, expected to launch this week, will include upgrades and new features. More details will be revealed later today.

Director of Publishing Michael Douse says PS5 performance improvements may be the “least exciting thing” in the title’s next update, so it sounds like a big one. Larian Studios employees are proud of “finally” implementing tweaks, fixes, and changes, Douse says. Later today, we’ll bring you all the Baldur’s Gate 3 update details.

Those who reached the RPG’s third act have reported technical issues during the narrative’s conclusion, especially in co-op, so today’s update should fix them. New features like a permadeath mode are expected, along with Xbox Series S optimization fixes. What else should be added to the game?
