The HAL (Hardware Abstraction Layer) API provides information about CPU type, architecture, and clock speed. However, wrong values are reported for most S60 3rd Edition devices.


The following code returns wrong values for CPU clock speed and CPU ABI (Application Binary Interface):

 #include <hal.h>
 TInt cpuSpeed, cpuABI, ret;
 ret = HAL::Get( HALData::ECPUSpeed, cpuSpeed );
 ret = HAL::Get( HALData::ECPUABI, cpuABI );


No known solution.

Device specification pages on Forum Nokia provide information on CPU type and clock speed.
