Optiemus Infracom, an exclusive BlackBerry licensee in India, has announced a new selection of BlackBerry Evolve devices coming to India, including the Evolve and Evolve X, The Verge reports.

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.

The Evolve (4GB) is to become available exclusively through Amazon India at the end of the month, retailing for roughly $365. The Evolve X, approximately $510, comes with an extra 2GB of RAM, launching in mid-September.
