Optiemus' BlackBerry 'Ghost' breaks cover, coming soon to India

BlackBerry GHOST Leaks! And It Looks Pretty Awesome

Other details about the BlackBerry Ghost remain scant, but a leaked image shows it as a bezel-less phone. New reports suggest that the smartphone manufacturer is reportedly working on a premium phone called the "BlackBerry Ghost". Optiemus has a licensing agreement to make and sell BlackBerry smartphones in India. TCL is mostly known for making budget TVs and Alcatel smartphones.

Optiemus, an Indian company that has a license to manufacture and distribute BlackBerry phones in India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh, will soon unveil a handset dubbed BlackBerry "Ghost".

The UAE is one of the top 10 markets globally for the BlackBerry brand, Mr Mahieu said, with the KeyOne accounting for 2-3 per cent of sales in what he described as the country's "premium" smartphone market in 2017.

Beyond this image, there is not much to tell. According to a leak by famous tipster Evan Blass, The BlackBerry Ghost will be made by Optimeus and the device will be launched in India soon.

To give any device the best chance to succeed, its manufacturer needs to be able to distribute it effectively, and TCL clearly bought a very robust network of existing relationships along with the BlackBerry brand. Last year, BlackBerry had featured a mid-range chip in KeyOne which offers Qualcomm Snapdragon 625. However, the tweet notes that the alleged BlackBerry Ghost could be bezel-less. However, it really is hard to see how small the bezels are on this device. Nokia took its time, but eventually joined the thin-bezel design party at MWC 2018 (Mobile World Congress). The bottom bezel however is not clearly visible. That number comes courtesy of IDC's Francisco Jeronimo who also brought us numbers on Essential Phone and Google Pixel sales earlier this month. It came with India specific features and dual-SIM which the global version lacked.

Actually, BlackBerry retired from making phones sometimes ago, but it still finds a way to make phones albeit through third-parties.
