Unfortunately, the device will only be available in India and won't actually be made by Blackberry nor TCL. The smartphone is ruoured to be called the "Ghost".

"That looks hard for now", said Counterpoint Research analyst Neil Shah, as estimates peg the number of BlackBerry devices sold in the fourth quarter of 2017 to just 170,000 units. TCL is mostly known for making budget TVs and Alcatel smartphones. Under the licensing terms, the company will manufacture, design and sell BlackBerry handsets in neighbouring countries including Sri Lanka, Nepal and Bangladesh as well.

According to USA Today's Christine Brennan it was the "worst collective US women's figure skating performance at an Olympics". On Thursday, Zagitova went first, greeted by chants and cheers from the Russian fans desperate for that first gold.

So much so, in fact, that despite the low shipment number for previous year, Francois Mahieu, the chief commercial officer of BlackBerry Mobile, has declared "mission accomplished" following the launch of its first flagship of the TCL era. This is why Digital Trends believes that the BlackBerry Ghost may feature a similar midrange chip alongside a modest amount of RAM.

So what are your thoughts on a premium bezel-less BlackBerry? The top bezel seems to be very slim comprising of the selfie camera and the earpiece. Nokia took its time, but eventually joined the thin-bezel design party at MWC 2018 (Mobile World Congress). The phone is completely covered in glass in front and has a metal frame.
