With the prevalence of screen-dominant smartphones nowadays, one could be forgiven for thinking a company like Blackberry wouldn’t be around anymore. But they technically still are, because of foreign telecom companies such as TCL (which currently handles manufacturing, distribution, and design for the rest of the world’s market) and BB Merah Putih acquiring the brand’s license to develop and sell products. But their third collaborator, the Indian company Optiemus Infracom, is looking to shake things up in the Android industry by releasing a “premium handset” for the country’s market.

A photo was shown in a tweet by the same guy who leaked those Samsung Galaxy S9 renderings, Evan Blass. By that lone picture, Optiemus is looking to impress with a sleek, bezel-less design, taking a page from Apple and Samsung’s releases last year, the iPhone X and the aforementioned S9.
Aside from the photo and its brief claims, no other details have been released yet as of late. But it does look promising, so fingers crossed that it delivers and is available in other countries.
