The catalog of BlackBerry It is not that it is very nourished, but it does offer models that point to what is expected of the brand: that offer a remarkable amount of software in order to maintain security. The BlackBerry KEY2 is the representative of the brand for 2018. At least internationally, because BlackBerry has just introduced new smartphones in India.
The brand of mobile phones with an integrated physical keyboard leaves this characteristic detail to implement a mobile with almost any screen. Well, two mobiles: the Evolve and EvolveX they are practically identical separating each other by some components. As you will be imagining, the second is the most powerful of the two. Without talking about a champion in terms of benefits.
The new ones BlackBerry Evolve bet on the trend all screen with 5.99-inch LCD panels and Full HD + resolution. They maintain the elegant design that characterizes the brand offering balanced performance with an acceptable thickness. Of course, security remains intact: DTEK is implemented in the system, also the Hub and other BlackBerry proprietary applications.
