Blackberry Ghost & Ghost Pro To Launch as Blackberry Evolve & Evolve Pro

Earlier we knew that Blackberry’s Indian licensee, Optiemus would be launching two new Blackberry smartphones- Blackberry Ghost and Ghost Pro. Even the previous reports and leaks referred to the phones using that name. However, today, popular tipster Even Blass has said out that the phones will be named as Blackberry Evolve and Evolve Pro. He further clarified that ‘Ghost’ was just a codename for the device.

The device, codenamed Blackberry Ghost was a thing for the first time a few months back and then some renders emerged. Recently we heard that the phone will pack a big 4000mAh battery.

As of now, the rumors claim that the Blackberry Evolve and Evolve X will sport a futuristic look from 2018, i.e. a bezel-less display. However, we are not quite sure about the implementation of the bezel-less design as the renders showed no sign of notch.  Though the renders point towards a glass and metal build. In other markets, Blackberry partnered with TCL, but even with those phones, Blackberry seemed to stick with mid-sized batteries with only one exception- Blackberry Motion. Blackberry Motion is the only smartphone from the brand packing a huge 4000mAh battery.

There is no info regarding the launch of Blackberry Evolve and Evolve Pro, but the Optiemus made Blackberry phones may be exclusive in India and may mark the starting of a bezel-less design era for Blackberry.

Additionally, Xiaomi’s global spokesperson Donovan Sung too acknowledged the same on Twitter. He posted a teaser image showcasing the back panel of both the devices, having vertically stacked dual camera setup, under the Android One branding.

The Xiaomi Mi A2 will come with a 5.99-inch IPS LCD display with Full HD+ resolution and an aspect ratio of 18:9. Under the hood, it will be powered by the Qualcomm 660 SoC coupled with 4/6 GB of RAM and 64/128 GB of onboard storage.
