BlackBerry Ghost Pro from Optiemus appears in new leak

BlackBerry Ghost Pro from Optiemus appears in new leak
Almost a month ago, we passed along a leaked image of a rumored new BlackBerry that will supposedly be manufactured by Optiemus, a company in India that licenses the BlackBerry name and its version of Android. The phone was said to be called the BlackBerry Ghost, and appeared to feature an edge-to-edge screen with a near bezel-less design. The device would most likely have limited distribution in India, and the smart money says that it wouldn't be offered in the U.S.

Today, a render of a new handset was disseminated via tweet from tipster extraordinaire Evan Blass. The prolific tipster says that this is the BlackBerry Ghost Pro from Optiemus. It appears that this device will also sport razor thin bezels, and an 18:9 aspect ratio. Without any buttons in front, the fingerprint scanner is either in back, or embedded under the display. To be honest, the two renders (Ghost and Ghost Pro) look quite similar, and the placement of the antenna lines on the two phones line up. This could indicate that the Ghost Pro is a premium version of the Ghost series, with a bump up in specs.

There are two other BlackBerry licensees, TCL and BB Merah Putih. TCL is expected to release two new BlackBerry models this year, which could include a sequel to the BlackBerry KEYone
