BlackBerry Ghost and Ghost Pro to launch this quarter?
In February and March, we showed you a pair of renders for a couple of new handsets that were reportedly being prepped by BlackBerry licensee Optiemus. If the renders are legit, both the BlackBerry Ghost and the BlackBerry Ghost Pro will be two of the sexiest BlackBerry phones ever produced. The two devices each feature an edge-to-edge screen and an aspect ratio of 18:9. Neither render shows off a fingerprint scanner, which means that the biometric reader is on the back of the phone, or (less likely) embedded under the display.

While Optiemus never confirmed the existence of the Ghost and Ghost Pro, the company's executive director, Hardip Singh, said in an interview that Optiemus will be coming out with a whole range of BlackBerry models starting this quarter with the release of two handsets. Could these two be the BlackBerry Ghost and BlackBerry Ghost Pro? The two new phones will be aimed at consumers in India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Nepal, and will come with the DTEK security feature and BlackBerry Hub.


Optiemus hopes to grab a 10%-12% market share in the price segments at which it will sell its BlackBerry handsets. The company could also produce a line of BlackBerry branded accessories including a wireless charger.

Just yesterday, U.S. BlackBerry fans were heartened to see a render for the BlackBerry "Athena," which apparently is the code name for sequel to the BlackBerry KEYone. Last month, accessories for the BlackBerry KEYone 2 appeared online.

It appears as though three new BlackBerry models could soon be unveiled including a sequel to the BlackBerry KEYone, the BlackBerry Ghost and the BlackBerry Ghost Pro. Stay tuned.
