Blackberry has officially confirmed its latest device will be ditching the keyboard, once seen as a key selling point for the firm’s handsets.

TCL, the Chinese electronics company behind its manufacture, launched the new Motion gadget at the Gitex Technology Week in Dubai.

The device will initially be launched in the United Arab Emirates and Saudi Arabia, before becoming available elsewhere.

It features 5.5-inch screen, headphone jack, a fingerprint reader, 12 MP camera and a huge 4,000mAh battery.

The mid-range device is powered by a Snapdragon 625 CPU, backed up by 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space

The mid-range Motion is powered by a Snapdragon 625 CPU, backed up by 4GB of RAM and 32GB of storage space.

The front of the six inch tall device is mostly taken up by a 5.5-inch 1080p display, as well as a fingerprint scanning home button.

On the rear, a 12-megapixel camera with dual-tone LED flash can take high quality stills and shoot 4K video at 30 fps.

The Motion is IP67 water-resistant and comes equipped with a 4,000mAh battery, providing almost twice as much charge as the iPhone 8 and 8 Plus.

That means the a full day’s use without the need to top up should be a realistic prospect.

The handset will come equipped with a BlackBerry tweaked version of Android 7.0 Nougat, the predecessor to the recently released 8.0 Oreo edition.

A global launch date and price is yet to be announced for the Motion.

In the UAE, it is priced at 1,700 dirham (£350 / $460).

US rapper Juice Wrld has died at the age of 21, authorities say.

The musician’s death, first reported by celebrity news website TMZ, has been confirmed by medical authorities in Illinois.

The Cook County Medical Examiner’s Office said he died on Sunday. The cause of death is not yet known, the office said.

The rapper, real name Jarad Anthony Higgins, was best-known for his viral 2018 hit Lucid Dreams.

Higgins, according to TMZ, died after suffering a seizure at Chicago’s Midway airport Sunday morning.

Chicago police told the BBC a 21-year-old man suffered a medical emergency at around 02:00 (08:00 GMT) local time and was taken to hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Police have launched an investigation into the death.

The rapper rose to fame in 2018, when hit singles All Girls Are the Same and Lucid Dreams, which peaked at number two on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, drew the attention of music fans and record labels.

In early 2018, he was signed by Interscope Records, landing a record deal reported to be worth more than $3m (£2.2m).

He topped the Billboard chart this year with his second album Death Race for Love.

In one of his songs, Juice Wrld rapped about the short lives of artists, saying “all the legends seem to die out”.

Tributes to the rapper have been pouring in on social media, with many writing “RIP Juice Wrld” to pay their respects.

In a tweet, British singer-songwriter Ellie Goulding, who collaborated with Juice Wrld on her 2019 single Hate Me, described the rapper as “such a sweet soul” who had “so much further to go”.

Hip hop artist HaHa Davis wrote on Twitter: “Heartbroken @JuiceWorlddd I love you bro.”
