UBM TechInsights performed a teardown of BlackBerry Z10 and they found components similar to that of the Galaxy S3. Taking a few examples, like the LTE version of the Galaxy S3, the Z10 is powered by the Snapdragon S4 Plus processor; further the team found that various Qualcomm parts are also the same in both the handsets; while the RAM and the internal memory are built by Samsung.
According to the tear down experts, “All in all, the Blackberry Z10 seems to incorporate many of the component selections of the Samsung Galaxy S3 LTE. It’s not certain if these decisions the designers made on what semiconductors, ICs and other modules to use were by design or by accident.”
Taking into account the huge sales figures of the S3, we think it was no accident whatsoever.
