Kalinga TV News Network
New Delhi: Mobile giant Blackberry is all set to introduce its Evolve and Evolve X models in India tomorrow. The smartphones will be launched at a mega event and will be sold by Optiemus Infracom, which has acquired the licensing rights for all BlackBerry-branded phones in India.
Before its launch, Blackberry has piqued the curiosity of buyers by publicising the smartphone’s special features which include a rear-mounted fingerprint sensor and dual rear cameras. Contrary to popular rumours, the smartphones do not possess a physical keyboard. Information pertaining to the price and availability details will be revealed at the event.
A YouTube teaser released by Blackberry revealed that the smartphones will sport a dual camera setup on the backside and a fingerprint sensor besides the BlackBerry logo. The lock/ power key and volume controls have been placed on the right side of the handset. One can also trace a USB Type-C and a speaker grille, with no 3.5mm headphone jack. According to sources, both the smartphones will possess a 4,000mAh battery and are expected to run Android.
Interestingly, BlackBerry had earlier its KEY2 model in India last month which was priced at Rs. 42,990. This model had 4.5-inch full-HD panel along with a physical QWERTY keyboard on the bottom. Other key features included a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 SoC, fingerprint sensor on spacebar key and a dual rear camera setup with two 12-megapixel sensors.
