  • BlackBerry GHOST Leaks! And It Looks Pretty Awesome

However, the firm isn't just considering actual sales as a success, but also "channel presence", meaning having the phone available in most direct sales channels.

The Ghost would be a high-end Android phone, meaning it would be battling with the likes of the iPhone on one end and Android flagships on the other. As of now, the exact launch timeline of the upcoming BlackBerry Ghost has not been specified, however we can expect the premium smartphone launch in the next few months. The Canadian company isn't making smartphones itself these days, it has licensed its brand name to other companies who now make BlackBerry devices, much like Nokia has licensed its brand name to HMD Global.

However, as the company is an exclusive partner to Indian Blackberry smartphones, the devices may be sold only in India.

It is the very same phone which appeared a few days ago with almost full-screen design without any bezels either on top or bottom. It could be the solution to manufacturers - such as Apple and Samsung - wanting to completely remove bezels on smartphones.

"It doesn't have to be a niche business", Mahieu said, referring to BlackBerry Mobile's products.

BlackBerry Mobile, however, knows that it will not be able to challenge the current leaders of the industry such as Apple and Samsung. That's superior only to the Essential Phone's total shipments for the year, and that company didn't even exist for most of 2017.
