The BlackBerry has partnered with an Indian brand “Optiemus” in order to manufacture new Evolve line of smartphones which includes BlackBerry’s upcoming smartphones named BlackBerry Evolve and BlackBerry Evolve X in Australia and other countries. It is, however, announced in India yesterday and will go on sale from the end of August 2018. The availability for the rest of the world is yet to be announced.
Without a doubt, it’s a premium mid-range Android smartphone which has nearly every feature one would want. A gorgeous and biggest display, rear dual camera and of course, privacy and security. And interestingly, wireless charging for that matter. In short, BlackBerry Evolve X has it all but doesn’t house a physical keyboard.
The BlackBerry Evolve X is a flagship offering such ships with quality hardware which is made to deliver a seamless and flawless smartphone experience. The back of Evolve X houses a fingerprint scanner alongside a dual rear camera configuration. The BlackBerry Evolve X Features a 5.99-inch IPS LCD display (similar to its younger brother BlackBerry Evolve) with a resolution of 1080 x 2160 pixels. The display promises a bright and vivid visual experience when playing games or watching HD movies.
Performance & Battery
Inside the beast, there is a beast. The Evolve X is armed with Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 Chipset which is coupled with a whopping 6GB of RAM. Performance-wise, it’s superb and gives the users a lag-free experience. Thus you can indulge yourself in multiple apps at once or can play graphics-intensive games without getting any lag.
BlackBerry Evolve X Rumours have suggested that one of the surprising features of Evolve X is its massive 4000mAh battery. The battery touted to churn out an entire day even with a heavy usage and little more with a moderate use. Wait! The battery does support a Quick Charge 3.0 feature to charge it from 0% to 100% in a couple of minutes.
Camera & OS
Normally, BlackBerry doesn’t disappoint its audience especially when it comes to a camera and it seems like BlackBerry Evolve X is no exception. The device is holding a dual 12MP + 13MP rear cameras which is well-supported by an LED flash to capture detailed images even in low-light condition. To give users a great selfie experience, Evolve X brings a solid 16MP front-facing shooter.
As you’d expect, BlackBerry Evolve X runs on Android 8.1 Oreo operating system. Is it further upgradable to Android P 9.0 or not? We’re not sure.
Storage and Connectivity
As far as BlackBerry Evolve X’s storage is concerned, it’s equipped with an impressive 64GB of onboard memory that can be expended further up to 512GB via microSD card.
The connectivity options include Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, USB Type-C port, Bluetooth 5.0, GPS, dual SIM support and a bunch of others.
BlackBerry Evolve X Release Date and Price
The BlackBerry Evolve X is also known as BlackBerry Ghost X which is ready to release in Australia somewhere in August 2018. The device is expected to be released alongside its younger brother named BlackBerry Evolve (known as BlackBerry Ghost).
It was yesterday when BlackBerry Evolve released these 2 flagship smartphones in New Delhi India from 11:00 AM. As mentioned above, it will be available somewhere in August but exact BlackBerry Evolve X release date in Australia is undecided for now.
Perhaps your next question is how much does it cost? Well, BlackBerry Evolve X sets you back INR 34999 (in India) and after conversion, BlackBerry Evolve X price in Australia comes to around AU$691.
“To be honest, we didn’t find any single word regarding BlackBerry Evolve X release date and price in Australia but it’s safe to believe in rumours sometimes. Most important of all, BlackBerry Evolve X will only be landed in Black colour”.
It’s too early to say something about BlackBerry Evolve X but rumours, leaks and suggestions cannot be ignored. Based on what we’ve mentioned above, BlackBerry Evolve X is indeed one of a premium flagship smartphone which lands with a lot of powerful and fully-baked features. The device is backed by an exquisite configuration and sports a whopping onboard memory which is further expandable up to 512GB (yet to be announced) via microSD card. Moreover, BlackBerry Evolve X also features an exceptionally outstanding camera along with an LED flash on both sides (back and front). A 4000mAh battery supports Quick Charge 3.0 (Amazing!). Making a long story short, if you’re looking to get your hands on a handset which doesn’t break your bank but gives you your desired features, look no further but BlackBerry Evolve X.
