BlackBerry Evolve Specifications, Features, Price and Release Date

BlackBerry Evolve Features

The BlackBerry Evolve does not come with wireless charging and misses the whooping 6GB RAM too. It came with a modest Snapdragon 450 chipset but it is still built on an efficient 14nm process, so it will definitely offer a reasonable battery life. The octa-core CPU is clocked  at 1.8GHz,paired with 4GB RAM. The 64GB internal can also be expanded via a microSD card slot.

The BlackBerry Evolve also have a dual camera like its seniour sibling, but it is 13MP + 13MP, both with Samsung 3L8 sensors. The good part is that BlackBerry says it supports HDR but did not state the same for the Evolve X, which suggest they might have implemented a better setup in the more affordable device. The front-facing camera remains a 16MP with an LED flash on the side. The phone lacks support for Quick Charging.
