BlackBerry Vienna potentially benchmarked with Exynos SoC
Can we call the Priv a success just yet? Maybe not just yet. After all, we don’t dispute the power of real numbers and we have a lack of them right now. We also lack concrete evidence of a further BlackBerry push for the Android ecosystem, other than an all-points render.
Add this to the iffy picture pile as five GFXBench runs dated from November 7 have been logged with a test device called the “Blackberry STV100-1.”
The BlackBerry Priv, by the way, runs under the callsign “STV100-x” and obviously doesn’t run with an Samsung-made Exynos processor. The Exynos 7420 in particular has been used in all four of Samsung’s flagship devices this year. Specifically, we see callbacks of the original Galaxy S6 in these specs.
We can’t be sure that this device is anything much less the BlackBerry Vienna, but given the company’s OS pivot and the render’s exhibition of a screen that shares space with the keyboard and is slightly smaller than the one on the Priv.
Oh yeah, and the device name registry can be changed, too.
