Earlier today we reported that LG’s upcoming quad-core handset, the LG Optimus G and future LG handsets could be powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon S4 Pro chipset, and it looks like LG isn’t the only manufacturer interested. According to a new set of rumors, it seems that RIM has their eyes on the Snapdragon S4 Pro as well and that this particular chipset could power the company’s early Blackberry 10 devices and could certainly make the platform an ideal one of gaming, a feature which RIM seems to be touting a fair bit these days.
This is particularly interesting because apart from the confirmation of the various screen resolutions that can be found on Blackberry 10 handsets, not much else is known about the upcoming devices in terms of its hardware specs. Assuming the rumors are true, this would certainly make Blackberry 10 handsets a force to be reckoned with, at least as far as hardware is concerned. In any case we suggest taking this with a grain of salt for now, but Blackberry loyalists, what do you guys think?
