Although it's easy to forget with BlackBerry Mobile capturing most of the BlackBerry handset news these days, there are officially three organizations with the license to build BlackBerry-branded handsets across various regions, TCL/BlackBerry Mobile, BB Merah Putih, and finally Optiemus Infracom. While BlackBerry Mobile and BB Merah Putih have released their own designs, Optiemus Infracom has yet to release their take on a BlackBerry handset, but a new leak from Evan Blass (@evleaks) shows they might soon be ready to release something in India.
Dubbed 'Ghost', details are slim on this device thus far outside of what has been highlighted in @evleaks tweet and really, this is the first time any news of its existence has appeared outside of the knowledge that Optiemus would be releasing their own device after working with BlackBerry Mobile to bring the KEYone to India. No specs, no pricing, nothing other than to say it's a bezel-less premium Android handset. First impression, looks hot! But what do you all think? Let me know in the comments.
