The news came from the serial tipster, Evan Blass, who leaked the image of the alleged ‘BlackBerry Ghost’ along with the text “Coming Soon To India.”
As per the leak, the BlackBerry Ghost will feature an edge-to-edge display with visibly slim bezels, up front. The fascia of the phone will be clean as slate and doesn’t seem to have room for any home button or BlackBerry’s iconic QWERTY keyboard. The Ghost will have the onscreen keyboard and run on Android.
Further, it was revealed that the phone is being developed by Optiemus – a Delhi-based telecom enterprise. The firm inked a licensing agreement with Blackberry to and manufacture and sell their devices in India, last year. In most of the other regions, China-based TCL manufacture phones for BlackBerry.
That’s all we know about this Ghost device of BlackBerry, as of now. There is no other clarity on regarding its specifications, availability, and price.
BlackBerry last official offering in the Indian market was its KeyOne that was released back in August. It was a 4.5-inch IPS LCD display with a slider QWERTY keypad on the front, Snapdragon 625 octa-core SoC paired with 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage. In optics, the BlackBerry KeyOne has a 12MP rear camera and an 8MP front shooter. The handset houses a 3,505mAh battery with Quick Charge 3.0 support.
