Solarin, an Ultra Secure Android Smartphone for £10,000

Last updated:

Sirin Labs officially launched its super ultra secure Android smartphone at an event in London today, billed as ‘the world’s first truly smart phone’ – and will set you back a mere £10,000 ($16,000).

The firm said the phone is aimed at ‘the international business person who carries a lot of sensitive information but doesn’t want to compromise on usability, quality or design.’

“We do not accept that price drives what’s available in technology. With Solarin, we break the rules.” Moshe Hogeg, President and Co-founder of Sirin Labs, said.

The firm said it has spent over two years developing the phone in Sweden and Tel Aviv and uses software from Zimperium to encrypt data.

“Cyber-attacks are endemic across the globe,” said Tal Cohen, CEO and Co-founder of Sirin Labs.

The firm claims it includes ‘the most advanced privacy technology, currently unavailable outside the agency world’ and worked with KoolSpan to integrate chip-to-chip 256-bit AES encryption, the same technology that militaries around the world use to protect their communications, offering the strongest possible mobile privacy protection worldwide.

Activated by the unique Security Switch on the back of the handset, the phone enters a shielded mode, presenting an exclusive suite for fully encrypted calls and messages.

The beam forming audio and state-of-the-art sound system uses three bass-boosted speakers, all linked through a smart amplifier to maximise volume but control distortion, producing a clear unsullied sound.

It also boasts a 23.8-megapixel camera, with laser autofocus and industry-leading four-tone flash, plus a front facing flash and 5.5” IPS LED 2k resolution screen.

‘Exceptional audio and vision capabilities feature highly on our target audience’s wish list. SIRIN LABS’ audio and vision engineers fixated on exceeding expectation, turning to experts to develop a new benchmark for smart phone speaker systems and unparalleled striking screen intensity,’ Cohen said.

Designed by world renowned industrial designer Karim Rashid, the firm said it was ‘meticulously assembled by engineers more used to making the world’s finest watches’.

It boasts a metal matrix composite chassis – typically used in the aerospace industry for its absolute rigidity – to incorporating titanium panels for structural strength, Gorilla Glass 4 and a leather back panel.

Fredrik Öijer, VP Product, Sirin Labbs said,

“Every single design decision and material choice was based on performance and functionality. The product you hold today unites the very best of the world stage. Our network of extraordinary partners is the culmination of our unwavering focus on quality, not cost, regardless of complexity.”

SOLARIN is available online, at SIRIN LABS first store in Mayfair (34 Bruton Place), London from 1 June and Harrods, Knightsbridge from 30 June.
