BlackBerry is now gearing up to launch a new flagship in India, the BlackBerry Ghost. We have had enough reports and rumours till date giving us clues on what the smartphone in look like and what it will carry under the hood. However, a recent report has confirmed that the device is launching in India this summer.
According to the renowned tipster, Evan Blass, the BlackBerry Ghost will come with a 4,000mAh battery under the hood. He also claims that the device will come with a dual-camera setup at the back which will give it optical zoom capabilities. The camera setup will have improved low light performance over the last year's flagship, KeyOne.
We started receiving reports and rumours about the Ghost back in February this year. The Ghost is said to come with a bezel-less display in order to compete against 2018's smartphones. If the rumours are to be believed, this will be the first BlackBerry smartphone to sport an 18:9 or higher aspect ratio display. Also, the 4,000mAh battery will be the biggest battery capacity ever provided by the company.
One more Ghost tidbit: it's got a 4,000mAh battery, which would be one of the largest in a flagship-class device.

To recall, the BlackBerry KeyOne had a 3,550mAh battery which with the company's optimizations ended up giving more than a day's battery backup during our testing. So, if the company is now increasing the battery capacity with the Ghost and if similar optimisations are made, this could be one of the best battery backup smartphones of 2018.
On the software front, the BlackBerry Ghost is expected to run Android 8.1 Oreo out of the box. The company might keep the Google operating system near to stock while adding a bunch of security features as that is what the company is known for.
