BlackBerry Ghost might soon launch in the Indian market with the biggest battery in a flagship-class phone. The information was leaked by the popular tipster- Evan Blass on Twitter where he mentioned that Ghost can sport a massive 4,000 mAh battery unit. Evan had earlier tweeted about the BlackBerry Ghost in March 2018 when he mentioned that the flagship smartphone will be introduced to Indian consumers in summer.

We were long waiting for a flagship smartphone with such a powerful battery cell and it seems that BlackBerry Ghost will likely be the solution to our battery problems in the premium smartphone category.
The tweet notes that the Indian telecommunications giant Optiemus that owns the BlackBerry license is involved in making the device. BlackBerry Ghost will likely sport a bezel-less design and is said to feature the best ever camera engineered by the BlackBerry team.
