BlackBerry’s recently launched the BlackBerry Priv Secure Smartphone, an Android Smartphone from Blackberry. The BlackBerry Priv is an Android Smartphone with some BlackBerry features pulled in. The phone is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 chip-set. However, it looks like BlackBerry could extend its partnership to other chip-set suppliers. This is where Samsung Exynos comes into the picture. The Samsung Exynos could be another partner in the Company’s phone offerings. This seems another addition for BlackBerry – from Qualcomm to Samsung.

It is quite a possibility that BlackBerry is testing a prototype of the Samsung Chipset best known for being part of Samsung S6 series. The S6 has a 5.1 QHD touchscreen, 3GB RAM, 32GB internal storage, 16MP rear camera and a 5MP selfie snapper.

The Blacberry Priv was the first Android Phone from BlackBerry. These could be the specs of one of the next BlackBerry phones running Android, or they might just be ‘borrowed’ from the Galaxy S6 by someone who simply changed the model’s name.
