BlackBerry is reportedly working on a new smartphone, dubbed as BlackBerry Ghost, for the Indian market. The phone was subjected to various leaks in the past and the latest one reveals that it might launch in the country in Q3 of 2018 with 4,000mAh battery.
According to a tweet by a known tipster, Evan Blass, BlackBerry Ghost will come loaded with a 4,000mAh battery. Optiemus Infracom will release the said smartphone in India this summer. This simply means that the device will be announced in the third quarter of 2018. The tipster further claims that the smartphone will come loaded with dual rear cameras. The cameras will come loaded low-light enhancements and it will also feature an optical zoom.
One more Ghost tidbit: it’s got a 4,000mAh battery, which would be one of the largest in a flagship-class device.

The company is also working on a Pro version of the upcoming smartphone. Dubbed as BlackBerry Ghost Pro, the phone’s render was leaked online. On first glance, the Ghost Pro doesn’t appear to be featuring an 18:9 display like what we saw on the original Ghost device. Also to note is the fact that the new Ghost lineup doesn’t seem to be featuring the traditional physical keyboard which BlackBerry has been popular for.
For the unintended, BlackBerry entered into a long-term licensing agreement with Optiemus Infracom Ltd for the production of future BlackBerry Android handsets in India. Under the licensing terms, the company will manufacture, design and sell BlackBerry handsets in neighbouring countries including Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh as well.
