  • Optiemus Infracom announces the overpriced BlackBerry Evolve and Evolve X

With just the right size for single hand use, the Evolve sports an 18:9, 5.99-inch full view display and is protected by the same damage-resistant Corning® Gorilla® Glass 5 - Corning's latest offering which protects against drops onto hard surfaces and is up to 4 times more durable than alternative glass. 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.

BlackBerry Evolve X will be having an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 with Adreno 512 GPU.

It packed with 4,000 mAh capacity battery inside the body and also comes with Quick Charge 3.0 feature.

Camera gadgets dual - younger version of resolution of both modules is 13 MP, and the older 12 MP (second to 13 MP) and aperture of f/1.8. Both the phones come with a massive battery, dual rear camera and Android Oreo OS.

The natural disaster felt in parts of neighbouring island Bali, one of the most popular tourist destinations in the region. A magnitude 7 quake struck off the north coast of Indonesia's island of Lombok, the Indonesian Meteorological Agency said.

Commenting on the launch, Mr. Hardip Singh, Executive Director, Optiemus Infracom said, "We are constantly working to offer cutting-edge technology and the best and the most secure experience to consumers at a competitive price point". For example, the Nokia 7 Plus with a Snapdragon 660 is almost identical in price to the Snapdragon 450-powered BlackBerry Evolve. The devices then run Android 8.1 Oreo. Connectivity options include a USB 2.0 Type-C port, 4G VoLTE, Wi-Fi 802.11 ac, Bluetooth 5 LE and GPS + GLONASS. Both devices have 64GB internal storage and 16MP cameras up front.

The BlackBerry Evolve X featured with vertically placed dual camera sensors and dual-tone LED flash on the back side. Optiemus hasn't provided aperture or other technical details for the latter, which suggests it might not be as impressive as the Evolve X camera setup.

Both the phones have got the fingerprint sensor which can unlock the device at about 0.3 seconds. Also of note is that the Evolve X offers wireless charging.

Both the Evolve and Evolve X are expected to launch on August 20th in India. While UK prices and availability hasn't been confirmed yet, it'll cost the equivalent of about £280 in India when it hits the shelves there next month.
