BlackBerry Debuts New Evolve Smartphones With Full-Width Touchscreen
Each phone boasts a noticeably large screen, with 18:9 aspect ratios, in addition to sizable 4000 mAh batteries. The devices then run Android 8.1 Oreo.
The Evolve smartphones do not have the familiar QWERTY keyboard, instead opting for a full-width touchscreen. They also welcome fingerprint sensors on the back, in addition to a face-unlock feature.
Lastly, the Evolve and Evolve X charge via USB-C and are compatible with wireless charging.
