Back in mid-November 2014, Samsung and BlackBerry signed an agreement to sell each other's mobile security solutions. Earlier today, Reuters published news about a report allegedly coming from an insider familiar with the matter who claimed Samsung wants to buy BlackBerry for $7.5 billion. Soon after the rumor made it online, BlackBerry stepped up and denied it.

"BlackBerry Limited (NASDAQ:BBRY)(TSX:BB) (“BlackBerry”) is aware of certain press reports published today with respect to a possible offer by Samsung to purchase BlackBerry. BlackBerry has not engaged in discussions with Samsung with respect to any possible offer to purchase BlackBerry. BlackBerry’s policy is not to comment on rumors or speculation, and accordingly it does not intend to comment further," reads BlackBerry's official statement.

BlackBerry has an impressive patent portfolio and despite its tough last few years still has a few attractive smartphones on the market, especially the square screen Passport. Even if Samsung is not negotiating this purchase now, it does not mean it cannot happen at a later time. Remains to see what the future holds for BlackBerry and be sure we will keep you posted.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
