BlackBerry Ghost rumored to feature 4000mAh battery

BlackBerry Ghost rumored to feature 4000mAh battery
It was back in February when the first image of the BlackBerry Ghost leaked, thanks to reliable tipster Evan Blass. The device will be the first 'Berry to feature what has become the "modern look" for smartphones, including thin bezels and an 18:9 (or 2:1) aspect ratio. The company behind the Ghost is Optiemus, a BlackBerry licensee that sold India's first mobile phone back in 1995. The initial tweet from Blass was followed nearly a month later with a new tweet revealing information about the BlackBerry Ghost Pro, which we assume is a premium version of the Ghost.

In May, another leak from Blass tipped a summer release for the Ghost and Ghost Pro. At the same time, we were told to expect a dual camera setup on the back of the devices, with low-light enhancement and optical zoom. Today, the tireless tipster revealed that the Ghost will be equipped with a large 4000mAh battery. That would be the largest capacity battery ever to grace a BlackBerry branded phone, tying the BlackBerry Motion for the honor (the BlackBerry PlayBook tablet employed a 5300mAh cell).

The Ghost could be unveiled soon. Optiemus' own website has been taken down except for a notice that reads, "We are working on something amazing. We will be right back." Unfortunately, U.S. consumers don't stand a ghost of a chance to be able to buy this all-touch BlackBerry device. The license that BlackBerry signed with Optiemus apparently covers India, Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh only.

Would probably be too chunky for me anyways. I generally prefer optimization with a reasonable sized battery so the phone won't be too fat in the form factor.

If it's not too chunky it would be too thin, or have large bezels, or not universally unlocked, or have capacitive buttons. Face it, you'd never buy a BlackBerry even if it was made by Steve Jobs himself.

You mean like the KeyONE I still have on me? I don't know why you bothered to mention Steve Jobs because it has nothing to do with what we are talking about right now.

Except you don’t own a KEYᵒⁿᵉ, or you would have posted proof when asked just to shut me up. No way would you pass up a chance to do that, lol.

We both know that you're going to keep going on and on regardless what I post, so don't insult my intelligence. I have nothing to prove to you. It just burns you inside that I own a device from an OEM that I supposedly hate so much. It's not that big of a deal, and I wasn't even responding to you at the time.

We both know that you own a KEYᵒⁿᵉ, and that’s why you won’t post any proof of ownership, so don’t insult my intelligence. You can’t prove what you don’t have. It just burns you inside that I know that you don’t own the device, and you know that it’s a fact that you don’t. You can say that you own it all you want, but we both know that you don’t, and that has you seething with anger. You’ve responded to people (and me) that weren’t directing their comments to you, so don’t try and act like I can’t respond to you if you’re not responding to me.

The BlackBerry Motion has a 4,000mAh battery and it isn’t chunky at all, so no, it wouldn’t be too chunky. You just happen to find any reason to complain about any device with a BlackBerry logo on it.

I'm not complaining at all. Just because I said something you disagreed with doesn't mean you have to comment on everything I say. Not everyone has to agree on everything you know.

Lol, you’re always complaining on a BlackBerry article. One only has to look at them to see the proof. Has nothing to do with who agrees with who when facts are present. Just like it’s a FACT that there is already a BlackBerry smartphone with a 4,000mAh battery and it’s not chunky. Try doing some research next time before commenting.

I'm not always complaining. You're just fuming because I said something on a blackberry article. It doesn't matter what I say because you're just going to complain about it anyways. As for me doing my research, I'm talking about THIS phone.

There is digital proof for all to see that you do indeed complain on every BlackBerry article that you comment on. You’re just seething with anger because I’m pointing it out. It doesn’t matter how positive about BlackBerry the article is, you’ll always find something to complain about concerning them. If there is already a BlackBerry branded phone with the same size battery as THIS one and it’s not chunky, then it stands to reason that THIS phone won’t be chunky. Had you done the research, you’d know this.

...I don't understand anything you just said. I'm not even going to attempt to translate that garbled mess up above.

The license agreement between Blackberry and Optiemus covers India, but also Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh.

The BlackBerry Motion also has a 4,000mAh battery, so the Ghost won’t be the only BlackBerry branded smartphone with this size battery.
