Worthy of James Bond: Solarin Smartphone Boasts Military-Grade Encryption


The answer to your cyber security issues has arrived. Or at least, that’s what a new company called Sirin Labs claims it has done by building the world’s most secure smartphone, Solarin #mobilemagic

This mysterious, premium-feel smartphone is supposed to have “military grade” encryption built in its hardware. A chip-to-chip 256-bit AES encryption, to be more specific. The smartphone is directed to the titans of this world who can not only afford such gadgets but supposedly require more privacy than any other mortal.

To convince yourself that Solarin was designed with a bank vault in mind, the smartphone has a physical “security switch” that shields the phone from peeping strangers. Otherwise, Solarin is your standard high-end smartphone with killer design from Karim Rashid, renowned industrial designer. It has a 5.5-inch 2K display, the typical Snapdragon 810 processor and a pretty good 23.8-megapixel camera with laser-assisted autofocus.

This all comes with a hefty price – £9,500 or $13,792 USD. To sweeten a bit the blow, we’ll add that Solarin’s chassis is made from metal matric composite, usually used in the aerospace industry, has Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4, support for MU-MIMO and WiGig™ (802.11ad)  Wi-Fi that offers speeds up to 4.6Gbps.
