It was in the year 1999 that the first BlackBerry device launched, the BlackBerry 850 was a two-way pager. The company got its name because of the resemblance between its QWERTY keyboard and the BlackBerry fruit. At an event held in New Delhi, India, the company launched two new smartphones today, the BlackBerry Evolve and Blackberry Evolve X. The company is marketing these smartphones as the “Most Secure Android Smartphones”.  Both the smartphones will be available exclusively on Amazon with the Evolve going on sale from the end of August. It is not the first time that BlackBerry has launched a full-touch type display on a smartphone, prior to this the company also launched the BlackBerry Z3.

Powering the BlackBerry Evolve is a Snapdragon 450 with Adreno 506 GPU for graphics performance. While the BlackBerry Evolve X runs on a more powerful Snapdragon 660 with Adreno 512 GPU. The Evolve is available with 4GB RAM and 64GB storage and the Evolve X has 6GB RAM and 64GB storage. Surprisingly, BlackBerry did not announce any other storage variants for these smartphones. Each of the smartphones sports a massive 4,000 mAh display, which, considering the chipset and display resolution should be more than enough for them to last a day even with heavy usage. The smartphones will use a USB Type-C port for charging and data-syncing purposes.
