  • Render of BlackBerry Ghost Full-Screen Phone For India Leaks

The BlackBerry Ghost appears to have a "bezel-less" design that's in keeping with the current smartphone trend.

In 2016, Chinese-based TCL purchased the rights to sell under the BlackBerry name, leading the partnership to launch its first flagship smartphone, the KeyOne, at Mobile World Congress past year.

One of these is likely the so-called BlackBerry Ghost, a full-screen handset destined for India that was outed by Evan Blass on Twitter earlier this week (below). 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 BlackBerry brand has yet to regain significant traction globally since the launch of the KeyOne at Barcelona previous year, which was followed in October by the unveiling of the BlackBerry Motion. The tipster reveals that the smartphone will be launched in India soon.

However, the firm isn't just considering actual sales as a success, but also "channel presence", meaning having the phone available in most direct sales channels.

BlackBerry will launch a new smartphone in the hands of Optiemus, an Indian telecommunications company. For now, we only have the image of the BlackBerry Ghost that points out that it could be a bezel-less and high-end smartphone. The phone is completely covered in glass in front and has a metal frame. But after the launch of the original iPhone back in 2007, the qwerty phones didn't have much luck. There have been several colour iterations of the KEYone, notably the Silver Edition, Black Edition and the upcoming Bronze Edition. 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. The image also reveals rounded sides and corners for the Ghost with the device as a whole being quite slim as well.
