After launching the Key2 in India, a couple of new BlackBerry devices are being launched today. The launch event in Delhi kicks off at 11:00AM, and the two new upcoming devices are the BlackBerry Evolve and the BlackBerry Evolve X.

Like the Key2, the two new BlackBerry Evolve smartphones too are being brought to India by Optiemus Infracom. This company essentially holds the licensing rights for BlackBerry phones in the country.

While details are scarce, we do know that both the new BlackBerry devices will feature touchscreen displays. In other words, there’s won’t be a QWERTY keypad like the one found on the Key2. Other rumored features include dual rear cameras, rear-mounted fingerprint sensor, USB Type-C port, and possibly a 4,000mAh battery.
