Report: BlackBerry building 64-bit octocore smartphone
According to a few sources, BlackBerry is working on a "killer" smartphone with high-end specs. Unfortunately, it likely won't see the light of day until the Q2 2015.

The device will feature the extremely efficient and powerful 20nm Snapdragon MSM8994 chipset, which uses a 64-bit architecture and has eight CPU cores and can be clocked up to 2.5GHz.

Additionally, the device can have up to 4GB of LPDDR3 1600MHz RAM, an Adreno 430 GPU and OpenGL ES3.0, direct x11.1, OpenCL1.2.

While those specs would blow any current machine out of the water by a long shot, by Q2 2015, it is expected that many high-end phone will boast such specs, meaning BlackBerry will once again be playing catch-up.
