Is BlackBerry testing Samsung’s Exynos 7420 chipset in its devices?


Last updated: November 23rd, 2015 at 12:37 UTC+02:00

The Samsung-made Exynos 7420 is considered as one of the best SoCs of this year as it turned out to be more stable than the rival chipsets. The chipset was used exclusively in Samsung’s high-end devices and Meizu used it in the Pro 5 smartphone. Now, it seems that BlackBerry is testing its devices with Exynos 7420.

We’ve stumbled upon entries of an unknown BlackBerry smartphone with code number STV100-1 on GFXBench, which uses the Exynos 7420 64-bit octa-core processor clocked at 2.1GHz. It seems to run Android 5.1.1 Lollipop, and it is equipped with a 5.1-inch QHD display, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, a 16-megapixel primary camera, and a 5-megapixel secondary camera.

Going by the specifications, this device is quite similar to the Galaxy S6, so don’t get your hopes too high as anyone can edit the build.prop file and make it look like a BlackBerry device. However, if this device turns out to be true, would you be interested in it? Let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
