BlackBerry’s Indian licensee Optiemus is expected to launch two new phones this year. Ever since news of the two devices surfaced, they have been referred to as the BlackBerry Ghost and Ghost Pro. Apparently, those are their codenames and a new leak has revealed their official names.
The leak comes from Evan Blass who first informed us about the existence of both phones months ago. According to a tweet from him yesterday, the BlackBerry Ghost will launch as the BlackBerry Evolve and the Ghost Pro will launch as the BlackBerry Evolve X.
Apparently the Ghost and Ghost Pro from India's Optiemus are coming to market as the BlackBerry Evolve and Evolve X.

Both the Evolve and the Evolve X are expected to come with 18:9 displays and powerful Snapdragon processors. A few weeks ago, Evan Blass also revealed the Ghost (Evolve) will pack a 4000mAh battery. The rest of the specs are still unknown and so is a release date.
Nevertheless, we hope more info about both phones surfaces in coming weeks. At the moment, the BlackBerry KEY² made by China’s TCL is still the most recent and most powerful BlackBerry phone on the market. But not everyone wants a phone with a QWERTY keyboard, so the Evolve and Evolve X will surely find its BlackBerry fans.
