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". According to a new leak by Evan Blass (@evleaks) that will be changing soon.

TCL, the budget phone maker that bought the rights to sell devices under the BlackBerry brand back in 2016, has come to Mobile World Congress 2018 with a positive message about the market response to its last flagship, the BlackBerry KeyOne. And now we have another BlackBerry on the horizon, and this one is called the BlackBerry GHOST.

Ahead of the official launch, BlackBerry Ghost has been leaked in an image, in which the device is seen flaunting its "bezel-less" design.

According to rumors, BlackBerry Ghost will be nearly a once a flagship canadian brand, and he is credited with the Android OS 8.1 Oreo out of the box, up to 6 GB of RAM, a large touch screen with no frame and metal body, both sides framed by reinforced glass panels.

"That looks hard for now", said Counterpoint Research analyst Neil Shah, as estimates peg the number of BlackBerry devices sold in the fourth quarter of 2017 to just 170,000 units. There is BB Merah Putih for Indonesia and Optiemus Infracom in India. As of now, the exact launch timeline of the upcoming BlackBerry Ghost has not been specified, however we can expect the premium smartphone launch in the next few months. We do not have any other information about the same such as its release date, pricing and specifications. 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.

Mahieu also spoke to CNET recently, saying that the next goal would be to capture at least three percent of the premium smartphone market with its own offering, which would translate to about 10 million units sold each year. There are no other details on the phone. The BlackBerry KeyOne for instance arrived a year ago with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625.

BlackBerry is making a bezel-less phone in India.
