While we may argue about the necessity of using a 100-megapixel camera in a phone or casing that changes color to match your mood, there is never too much when it comes to protecting privacy. There is no doubt, we rely on our phones to keep and share important private information. After all, they are supposed to be smart in every aspect. But so are those who are interested in gaining access to such information. Silent Circle, however, steps ahead and unveils a successor to the first generation BlackPhone introduced last year to make life harder for overly curious folks out there. Ladies and gentlemen, meet the BlackPhone 2, the most secure Android-based phone today.
Blackphone 2 is a smartphone packed to the fullest with security-oriented features.
While details concerning your last date might be embarrassing to share with others, it’s nothing compared to unauthorized person getting access to your company’s account. Silent Circle has found a way to stop the hackers by packing the BlackPhone 2 to the fullest with security-oriented features.
For instance “Spaces” UI keeps different areas of your phone encrypted and compartmentalized, even allowing for different log-ins for various apps and services. There is also “Silent Suite” apps which includes Silent Text, Silent Contacts, Silent Phone and Silent Meeting – “silent” in this context meaning encrypted and isolated.
As far as hardware is concerned, the BlackPhone 2 meets the standards for a premium 2015 smartphone. The device sports a 5.5-inch Full HD display (almost an inch bigger than 1st generation BlackPhone screen) protected by Corning Gorilla Glass 3 and is powered by a 64-bit octa-core Qualcomm chip of unspecified model.
Other key features include 3GB of RAM, 3,060 mAh battery with Quick Charge 2.0, LTE support and microSD slot for storage expansion. The phone runs PrivateOS 1.1 which is Silent Circle’s platform based on Android.
Tons of sensitive data is shooting through the air as you are reading this short article and much more is being stored on such devices as smartphones and tablets. If you are trading something more than just recipes, the BlackPhone 2 might be a good alternative for you. The phone is scheduled to arrive sometime this summer and guess what? It will cost exactly the same as its predecessor, that is $649 for unlocked phone without any long term commitments.
