BlackBerry 'Ghost' rumoured to be a premium smartphone made exclusively for India

BlackBerry GHOST Leaks! And It Looks Pretty Awesome

The company manufactures and sells BlackBerry smartphones in all countries expect India, Indonesia, Sri Lanka, Nepal, and Bangladesh.

The Twitter-based leakster Evan Blass has tweeted that a new BlackBerry smartphone called Ghost could be released soon for the Indian market. BlackBerry Mobile licensee Optiemus is said to be working on a new BlackBerry-branded handset codenamed "Ghost".

According to the rumors, upcoming blackberry will not provide mechanical keyboard on its phone and you will get a more sleek, slim and bezel-less phone like what people see in iPhone X and Samsung Galaxy S8. I did used to love the BlackBerry keypad back in the days of the Curve 8520, as confidently typing without looking was much easier than on touchscreen phones.

At CES 2018, TCL Communications confirmed the launch of "at least two new BlackBerry smartphones" later this year. Unfortunately, the device will only be available in India and won't actually be made by Blackberry nor TCL. Having said that the agreement was signed in 2017, this BlackBerry phone in question could be the first one that will be made by Optiemus while the others including the KeyOne were made by TCL.

Israel has maintained a blockade of the Gaza Strip, which is dominated by Hamas Islamists, for more than a decade. Fishing is one of the biggest industries in the Gaza Strip, a coastal enclave of nearly 2 million inhabitants.

On the other hand, this might be because BlackBerry is using a different metric to decide whether the sales were a success or not.

It seems that the phone's antenna lines are on the side of the device which indicate that the smartphone will feature a metal body and give a premium look to the device. That's not a huge number, but it's also not too bad considering we're talking about a phone in 2017 that has a physical keyboard.

BlackBerry launched KEYone Limited Edition Black with a QWERTY monoblock keyboard in India in August past year.

BlackBerry is making a bezel-less phone in India.
