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

BlackBerry GHOST Leaks! And It Looks Pretty Awesome BlackBerry Believes 850000 Shipped Units Of KeyOne Was A Success

Under the licensing terms, the company will manufacture, design and sell BlackBerry handsets in neighbouring countries including Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh as well.

The popular leakster Evan Blass of @evleaks fame has tweeted that a new BlackBerry smartphone called Ghost will soon land in India. Right now, we still don't have the phone's specs, price or exact release date, but these details should be available sooner or later. The BlackBerry Ghost will be made and sold by the Indian telecommunications company Opteimus. If the leaked image is anything to go by, then the BlackBerry Ghost smartphone will come with an on-screen keyboard and no physical button on the front.

While TCL and BlackBerry Mobile have been getting the lion's share of attention when it comes to designing new BlackBerry-branded devices, there are actually two additional companies that have the license to build those handsets, too. The handset, which was showcased at MWC 2017, has been launched in many major markets.

It seems that Blackberry is trying hard to gain a strong foothold in the Indian smartphone market. In 2017, the BlackBerry KeyOne was launched in India. He further added that the smartphone will be made by Optiemus Infracom. It is rumoured to feature a keyboard-based design and have larger keys than the BlackBerry KEYone.The BlackBerry Luna is expected to be a mid-tier model.


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

It is not clear if Ghost is the phone's codename or if it will be launched with some other name.

BlackBerry is making a bezel-less phone in India. Many potential customers didn't get the note that the Keyone and BlackBerry's other smartphones are now running Android, not the company's own OS.
