BlackBerry Mobile deems its KeyOne a success despite low sales

Blackberry has struck a similar deal with the Delhi based Optiemus Infracom in 2017, which holds the rights for India, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, and Nepal. Nicknamed "Ghost", the new device supposedly drops BlackBerry Mobile's signature keyboard in favour of a bezel-less design and plans to tackle the premium Android market. Rather, they outsourced the manufacturing license to TCL/BlackBerry Mobile, BB Merah Putih and Optiemus Infracom which now manufacture the BlackBerry-branded handsets across different regions. The company is all set to jump in the race of bezel-less screens and launch BlackBerry Ghost. The leaked image reveal that the phone will come with a premium design and it will sport a large display.

As reported by CNET, BlackBerry Mobile's chief commercial officer, Francois Mahieu, said at MWC this week that he would like to see the company claim three to five per cent of the market for premiums smartphones in 2018. The actual name of the handset with the codename Ghost has also not been revealed as yet.
