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.

Alas, the new BlackBerry Ghost has very little in common with the original BlackBerry design on 146% of normal, and is the traditional bar, which the market dozens. There are rumors that the Blackberry Ghost will be a premium smart phone, and will probably feature a bezel less 18:9 display.

For the past year, BlackBerry Mobile has been working hard to increase their market presence with the BlackBerry KEYone and BlackBerry Motion, and according to interviews given at Mobile World Congress, it has thus far been a successful mission for them. The image also reveals rounded sides and corners for the Ghost with the device as a whole being quite slim as well. As of now, there is no information about other markets that we may also see the BlackBerry Ghost coming in. Having said that the agreement was signed in 2017, this BlackBerry phone in question could be the first one that will be made by Optiemus while the others including the KeyOne were made by TCL. This isn't impossible for the company, to which Shah notes is still held back by consumers lacking the knowledge that BlackBerry Mobile and TCL have made the move to Android instead of its own operating system. Now, a new smartphone has emerged online, which is expected to launch in India.

The tweet mentioned that an Indian Telecom company Optiemus Infracom is involved in the making of this new Blackberry device. To recall, Optiemus Infracom had handled the marketing, sales, distribution and support for the BlackBerry KeyONE, the premium phone that was launched in India only previous year.

Not much is known about the new BlackBerry smartphones now in the works by TCL, but highly regarded tech leaker Evan Blass has given us our potential first look.

Actually, BlackBerry retired from making phones sometimes ago, but it still finds a way to make phones albeit through third-parties.
