BlackBerry has announced two new handsets, the Evolve and Evolve X. Both handsets ditch the trademark look of the company by not having a physical keyboard and offers a more sleek look with its all-screen design.
The Evolve X is the beefier of the two smartphones, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, 6GB RAM, and 64GB of internal storage that can be expanded via microSD. It has a 5.99-inch IPS LCD display with an 18:9 aspect ratio, and does not have a physical keyboard. On the rear, it has a dual camera setup, making use of 12MP and 13MP sensors. The front will house a 16MP camera. You can expect USB Type-C charging with Quick Charge support, and the phone will arrive running Android 8.1.
The Evolve will have much more modest specifications when compared to its 'X' sibling, powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 450 processor, 4GB RAM, and 64GB of internal storage with expansion via microSD. The phone will have a dual camera setup on the rear, using dual 13MP sensors, while the front will make use of a 16MP camera.
Both handsets are meant for India with the Evolve X expected to make its way to retail via Amazon sometime at the end of August and will cost ₹34,990 or around $510 USD. The Evolve will also be available through Amazon but will arrive sometime in September priced at ₹24,990 or around $364 USD.
