Blackberry Sold 850K Phones In 2017, Says

BlackBerry "Ghost": a bezel-less, premium Android handset from licensee Optiemus; coming soon to India.

That same day, police apprehended the suspect in Nara Prefecture on suspicion of confining the woman in the Higashinari residence. Bayraktar is believed to have used dating apps to communicate with a number of women since his arrival in Japan in January.

While I obviously don't share BlackBerry Mobile's enthusiasm for the KeyOne's market performance, I do see sufficient differentiation and remaining brand cachet to keep the brand going.

The tweet mentioned that an Indian Telecom company Optiemus Infracom is involved in the making of this new Blackberry device.

MWC 2018: ZTE Blade V9, Tempo Go Android Go smartphone launched
ZTE's Blade series is a tier under the top-of-the-line Axon series, and as such garners somewhat of a mid-range distinction. But the Chinese handset manufacturer still powers away and manages to produce some solid handsets at bargain bin prices.

As reported by The Verge, two senior members of the BlackBerry Mobile/TCL Team, Francois Mahieu and Alain Lejeune, claim its KeyOne smartphone launch was an "unqualified success". There is BB Merah Putih for Indonesia and Optiemus Infracom in India. No further design or specification details about the upcoming BlackBerry Ghost has been revealed as of yet. This means there could be 52 shortcuts to launch different applications. Also, the phone, as per the leaked image doesn't follow the usual BlackBerry phone design. The BlackBerry KeyOne for instance arrived a year ago with the Qualcomm Snapdragon 625. It's quite possible that the device will have a thin bottom chin, but it's also likely that Opteimus may have completely removed the bottom bezel for this phone.

The Ghost would be a high-end Android phone, meaning it would be battling with the likes of the iPhone on one end and Android flagships on the other.
