Blackberry could join Apple in the 64-bit smartphone club by releasing its own device later this month.

The mystery smartphone will apparently come with a 64-bit octa-core processor, which matches up with previous rumours of an eight-core Snapdragon MSM8994 chip being used.

An Adreno 430 GPU and 4GB of RAM are also on the cards – making for a powerful, high-end device.

While the  iPhone 5s’ 64-bit chip is required for its Touch ID Home button fingerprint sensor, it currently does little else apart from app future-proofing and the ability to use more than 4GB of RAM.

More details about Blackberry’s new device could be revealed at the Mobile World Congress later this month, so stay tuned for all the details.
