BlackBerry is preparing a new smartphone for the Indian market with the Optiemus manufacture, and the device was first rumored to be called Ghost. Later Evan Blass said the Ghost will be actually named Evolve and will have a mightier sibling, called Evolve X.
After the series of mystical leaks, the phones are finally set to step into the light. BlackBerry and Optiemus have scheduled an event for August 2 in India, where the alleged flagships will be introduced.
The phone was tipped to have a 4,000 mAh battery, dual-camera setup with optical zoom and low light enhancement. A leaked photo from February also suggested a metal frame and tall screen without a notch, but other specs are faint as a ghost.
Given the slogan Secure your date instead of the usual Save the date, the new device is likely to come with BlackBerrys in-house security solution DTEK for improved privacy levels of communication channels and data transfers.
Since the BlackBerry Motion is not available in India, the Evolve is expected to be the first phone without a QWERTY keyboard since the brands rebirth.
