Just like Nokia licensed its brand name to HMD Global, Blackberry also did the same but not to one but three licensees. TCL may be the most popular of the three since it releases its own BlackBerry phones globally but there are two others. There is BB Merah Putih for Indonesia and Optiemus Infracom in India.
Of the three licensees, only Optiemus Infracom hasn’t released its own BlackBerry phone yet. According to a new leak by Evan Blass (@evleaks) that will be changing soon.

The leaker shared a render of a bezel-less phone called the BlackBerry Ghost. The premium Android phone from Optiemus is said to be “coming soon to India”.
The image doesn’t reveal much about the BlackBerry Ghost. The phone is completely covered in glass in front and has a metal frame. There is a selfie camera on the left of the top bezel and the earpiece sits in the middle.
We can also make out a SIM tray and an antenna line on the left side of the phone. There is no front-mounted fingerprint scanner which means it is most likely on the rear but might also be on the side.
There is a lot we do not know about the BlackBerry Ghost. Up until today, the internet never even heard of it but we are pretty excited to see what BlackBerry (or Optiemus) comes up with.
