Blackberry is Testing Samsung Exynos Chipset in its Devices

24 November, 2015 Samsung Updates


The Samsung-made Exynos chipset turned out to be the best SoC that came out this year. It is indeed better than the competitors. Earlier it was used primarily in Samsung's high-end devices and Meizu's Pro 5 was also powered by this. Although, Blackberry's very first Android smartphone - the Priv featured Qualcomm-made Snapdragon 808 chipset, Blackberry is now testing its devices with the Exynos keeping in mind the Android phones to be released in the future.

We're saying this because a BlackBerry handset running on Android 5.1.1 Lollipop and featuring Samsung's Exynos 7420 SoC has been spotted in the GFXBench database. It is using the Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 2.1GHz. But, take this news with a pinch of salt, as the credibility of the source is has not been confirmed till now. It is quite easy to edit the build.prop file to make it look a Blackberry device.

There is a possibility that Blackberry might be actually testing its devices with Exynos, which also powers the S6. The handset has a 5.1-inch QHD touch screen, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of storage, a 16 MP camera in the back and a 5 MP selfie camera.
