Unnamed BlackBerry device is run through GFXBench revealing Exynos 7420 SoC inside

According to a GFXBench benchmark test of an unnamed BlackBerry handset, it appears that the company is testing the Exynos 7420 SoC. Samsung employed the chipset on its high-end Galaxy handsets. The rest of the specs include a 5.1-inch display, with a 1440 x 2560 QHD resolution. An octa-core 2.1GHz CPU is under the hood, along with the Mali-T760 MP8 GPU. 3GB of RAM is inside along with 32GB of native storage. On back is a 16MP camera, while the front-facing 5MP snapper will shoot selfies and handle video chats. Android 5.1.1 is pre-installed.

Before we go any further here, let's quickly point out that these specs might seem awfully familiar, They happen to be the same specs that you would find for the Samsung Galaxy S6 or Samsung Galaxy S6 edge. Considering that it is easy to play games with benchmark results, we need to take this with a couple of grains of salt.

The follow up to the BlackBerry Priv could be the device that has been code named the BlackBerry Vienna. This model appears to be less of a premium model than the Priv, with a physical QWERTY that is always displayed. Three physical Android buttons rest on top of the QWERTY (reminding us of the quartet of physical Android buttons found on the Motorola DROID X).

If this is legit, the device would join the Meizu Pro 5 as non Samsung phones that roll with the Exynos 7420 SoC inside.
