BlackBerry Evolve and Evolve X star in video teaser; phones will be unveiled tomorrow



The sexy looking all-touch BlackBerry Evolve and Evolve X will be unveiled August 2nd (tomorrow), as we told you yesterday. The two devices, code named the Ghost and Ghost Pro, are being manufactured by India's Optiemus Infracom. The latter has a licensing deal with BlackBerry that covers India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh.

The phones are said to have an aspect ratio of 18:9 and both sport the near bezel-less look that drives the kids wild these days. The dual camera setup on the back of the phones will reportedly feature low-light enhancement and optical zoom. And keeping the lights on the Evolve and Evolve X will be a huge 4000mAh battery.

On Tuesday, BlackBerry Mobile India released a teaser video for the Evolve and Evolve X that confirms the August 2nd unveiling date. Even though the whole clip is only 19 seconds long, it quickly shows us the back of the Evolve and Evolve X for the first time, revealing that the dual cameras on back are vertically mounted.

An earlier report suggested that while the Evolve and Evolve X will be available in India and some other Asian markets, the pair will be offered in other parts of the world as the BlackBerry Ghost and Ghost Pro. And that suits us just fine; we always said that we liked the Ghost/Ghost Pro branding.
