A report that Korean smartphone giant Samsung had offered to buy struggling rival BlackBerry for as much as 7.5 billion dollars saw the Canadian firm's shares rise 30% in US trade.

Blackberry's share price surge was the firm's biggest gain in about a decade.

Samsung said in an email it could "confirm media reports of the acquisition are groundless".

In December, Blackberry reported a larger-than-expected drop in revenue during the third quarter.
