    Hey community,

    Based on my research on the snapdragon 28nm chips, there isn't much that's fit for purpose on the Classic other than the MSM8960 S4 plus which is the expected 1.5 ghz dual core krait with adreno 220.
    The MSM8960T S4 Pro seems like the best case scenario (used on the z30) the additional benefit being extra 200mhz clock speed + Adreno 330 (hopefully quad core)

    I've attached a spec breakdown of compare and contrast...welcome to correct any inaccuracies i may have made

    Thanks

    Thanks for that compare grid...I hope indeed we get an improved camera and differentiated cpu from the q10

    A few things, the Q10 also has Miracast, and the best case scenario for the battery is not 2515. That's the one in the test units. Remember the Q10 had a 1800mah battery in the test units. The best case scenario for the battery for the Classic is rumored to be somewhere around 3150mah or something like that, forgot the exact number, but it's up there...

    You'll not only see an additional clock increase on the MSM8960T, as its Krait 300 architecture, compared to the MSM8960's original Krait on the Z10/Q10, being an evolution, brings other performance advances.
    There's greater power efficiency, out of order execution, etc, to consider.
    Really it's an S4 Pro in name (probably to do with marketing blah blah blah), but in reality it's a Snapdragon 600 "Light" (2 less CPU cores).
    It'd be pretty backwards to go with an MSM8960 at this point, in my own humble opinion, when Blackberry is already using the 8960T.
