What is it everyone wants that starts with P and is not Pizza? Privacy!
Taking into consideration the fuss going about privacy in mobile phones a British-Israeli start-up, Sirin Labs, launched its smartphone ‘Solarin’ in London. It sounds like an everyday mobile launch. But what makes it gather shutterbugs is that the company claims it to be world’s most secure smartphone for a price tag of £9,500 (approx $14,000 or Rs 9 lakhs) without taxes.
Sirin Solarin comes packed with software like mobile security and anti-cyberattack from security expert enterprise Zimperium. Also, partnered with KoolSpan to integrate chip-to-chip 256-bit AES encryption (the very same technology which is used by militaries from around the world to secure their communication). The phone fancies a Security Switch at the back to fully encrypt voice calls and messages.
The smartphone is now available online and could be grabbed from the company’s first store in Mayfair, London. The sleek design gives it a premium feel (though it is a super premium device). The smartphone will also be available in multiple colour options like Fire Black Carbon Leather with Titanium, Fire Black Carbon Leather with Diamond-like Carbon, Fire Black Carbon Leather with Yellow Gold, and Crystal White Carbon Leather with Diamond-like Carbon.
Sirin Labs has been working on this device for 2 years on its R&D operations in Sweden and Tel Aviv.
Privacy comes with a price. But the question is, are you willing to spend that much money?
