You can actually read out the public key from Whatsapp and use that to verify the encryption scheme.

But that would be of little use if they could extract private keys or plaintext messages from the device.

Whatsapp doesn't encrypt metadata though, which is a massive security vulnerability. There's absolutely no excuse to be using whatsapp.
