Blackberry Likely to Launch Bezel-Less Model Ghost in India

BlackBerry GHOST Leaks! And It Looks Pretty Awesome

Not weeks after BlackBerry signed an agreement with India's Optiemus Infracom to license its security software, services suite, and related brand assets, Evan Blass has given Twitteratis a sneak peek of what the product of the joint venture may look like. BlackBerry smartphones such as KeyOne, Motion and DTEK60 are manufactured by TCL.

Latest numbers from IDC reveal BlackBerry sold a total of 850,000 smartphone units in 2017 - a notion two senior executives from BlackBerry/TCL affirm leave them "with a feeling of mission accomplished".

BlackBerry Mobile, however, knows that it will not be able to challenge the current leaders of the industry such as Apple and Samsung.

Sadio Mane Says Liverpool Can End the Season as Runners-Up
He has been directly involved in 31 Premier League goals this season (23 goals, eight assists), more than any other player. Liverpool are on the brink of the Champions league quarter-finals after thrashing Porto 5-0 in the first leg.

BlackBerry seems to be working on a new premium smartphone which will likely be exclusive to the Indian market. Notably, BlackBerry has three such partners globally that have the rights to sell BlackBerry-branded smartphones across the world.

BlackBerry launched KEYone Limited Edition Black with a QWERTY monoblock keyboard in India in August previous year. And, the total market of premium phones was 320 million units a year ago. By comparison HMD Global managed to sell 4.4 million Nokia-branded phones in just the fourth quarter of the year. The handset, which was showcased at MWC 2017, has been launched in many major markets.

With BlackBerry, that could mean very differently to what's typically expected. What the dissonance between widespread distribution and anemic sales shows is that the consumer response simply hasn't been there for BlackBerry. Thus, the company has to spend time and resources educating its customers on this fact. But after the launch of the original iPhone back in 2007, the qwerty phones didn't have much luck.

India asks Saudi Arabia for 'reasonable' oil pricing
According to a recent study by the EIA, under certain scenarios, total U.S. crude oil production could surpass 14M b/d by 2050. That doesn't mean US crude exports will necessarily fall back to the old levels before past year , below 1 mb/d, for example.

BlackBerry is making a bezel-less phone in India.

Over the past year, there have been a few BlackBerry handsets that came to market.
