2 new BlackBerry smartphones arrive in India

Optiemus Infracom announces the overpriced BlackBerry Evolve and Evolve X

BlackBerry Evolve, Evolve X now official: Are they worth the asking price, though?

Unlike previous BlackBerry devices, these two don't sport a touch and type setup, favouring a longer body display only design. Contrary to rumors, the apparatus has not received a hardware keyboard, but there is no monopoly, although the thickness of the upper frame is minimal. The less-expensive Evolve is powered by a Snapdragon 450 processor with 4GB RAM, while the Evolve X has a Snapdragon 660 with 6GB RAM. The Evolve will be ₹24,990 in India (about $365), while the Evolve X will be ₹34,990 (~$510). The BlackBerry Evolve X and Evolve are purely designed and manufactured in India.

Evolve comes equipped with a powerful 13MP+13MP dual rear camera and dual-tone LED flash, producing wonderful results, even in low light conditions.

But take a look at the rest of the spec sheet and it's clear the Evolve X is the high-end model here. The phone will be having a camera of about 12MP with a 13MP dual camera at the rear side.

No word from BlackBerry whether these phones will make their way stateside, but don't count on it. The phone runs on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system out of the box.
