Bezel-less BlackBerry Ghost In Works, To Be India Exclusive

Bezel-less BlackBerry Ghost In Works, To Be India Exclusive

If you are not aware, BlackBerry is no more involved in making the BlackBerry phones as the rights were sold to TCL, a Chinese phone maker but these rights are not applicable in countries such as India, Nepal, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka. According to a new leak by Evan Blass (@evleaks) that will be changing soon.

Not weeks after BlackBerry signed an agreement with India's Optiemus Infracom to license its security software, services suite, and related brand assets, Evan Blass has given Twitteratis a sneak peek of what the product of the joint venture may look like. This is a Delhi-based telecom company which had reportedly bagged the BlackBerry rights late a year ago.

Goal No 31 for Salah as Liverpool thrash West Ham
Despite finishing the match with only 36% possession, the Hammers made far better use of the ball when they had it than Watford . Liverpool are hoping to beat West Ham at Anfield for the first time since 2015 when the two sides meet on Saturday afternoon.

The leaker shared a render of a bezel-less phone called the BlackBerry Ghost. The upcoming phone, aka the BlackBerry Ghost will be a premium device, which means we can expect it to be an expensive handset. Now, there seems to be one such device that is in the making and it is said to be dubbed BlackBerry Ghost. He further added that the smartphone will be made by Optiemus Infracom. This success, however, is a debatable one, as the higher-ups in BlackBerry Mobile and partner TCL might feel like it's an "unqualified success", but numbers wise, the KeyOne has only shipped 850,000 units.

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. Also, the phone, as per the leaked image doesn't follow the usual BlackBerry phone design. It's also unclear if this device is going to be released in markets outside India. IDC's Francisco Jeronimo says that about 850,000 units of the KeyOne were shipped previous year. The only specifications of the phone now known are that it runs on Android OS and comes with a slim bezel.
