BlackBerry GHOST Leaks! And It Looks Pretty Awesome

Nicknamed "Ghost", the new device supposedly drops BlackBerry Mobile's signature keyboard in favour of a bezel-less design and plans to tackle the premium Android market. 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. And now we have another BlackBerry on the horizon, and this one is called the BlackBerry GHOST.

According to the post, the upcoming BlackBerry Ghost will sport a bezel-less display.

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 actual name of the handset with the codename Ghost has also not been revealed as yet.

"That looks hard for now", said Counterpoint Research analyst Neil Shah, as estimates peg the number of BlackBerry devices sold in the fourth quarter of 2017 to just 170,000 units. Optiemus Infracom also told Techook that the company is not in a position to comment on this. The handset, which was showcased at MWC 2017, has been launched in many major markets.

Rick Nash trade grades: Bruins get Stanley Cup boost
It's still unknown if Spooner was a piece the Rangers really wanted, or if it was more of Don Sweeney forcing Jeff Gorton's hand. Will be updated.The New York Rangers have traded forward Rick Nash as part of a multiplayer deal with the Boston Bruins .

To give any device the best chance to succeed, its manufacturer needs to be able to distribute it effectively, and TCL clearly bought a very robust network of existing relationships along with the BlackBerry brand. What is also striking is the omission of a keyboard, which is generally a characteristic feature in BlackBerry phones.

850,000 units is less than 1 percent of the premium smartphone market, leaving BlackBerry Mobile and TCL trailing behind competition such as Samsung and Apple, according to The Verge. Last year, BlackBerry had featured a mid-range chip in KeyOne which offers Qualcomm Snapdragon 625. Still, we get a pretty clear look at a sleek looking BlackBerry handset.

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