SIRIN LABS, an Israel-based startup has announced its first device yesterday, promising to be the world’s fastest, most secure device at an insane price of $14,400 or approximately Rs 9,41,856 – The Solarin.
The selling point of the phone is its KoolSpan military-grade encryption and Zimperium-based threat detection.
As per the company, the Solarin is a privacy-first smartphone aimed at the international businessperson that spend much of their lives on the move, and have lots of information data “company co-founder and CEO Tal Cohen said at the product’s launch, according to CNN. He later warned that hacking “is something that can happen to any one of us…it’s just a question of if you’re targeted or not.”
Solarin is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with X10 LTE and Wi-Fi. It offers up to 450 Mbps downlink and up to 150 Mbps uplink speeds, coupled with support for 24 bands LTE compatibility. The smartphone also gets a rear 23.8-megapixel camera, with laser autofocus and industry-leading four-tone flash, plus a front-facing flash. The sound system uses three bass-boosted speakers, all linked through a smart amplifier, in order to maximise volume but control distortion, producing a clear sound.
The most advanced privacy technology SIRIN LABS partnered 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.
Tal Cohen, CEO, and Co-founder of SIRIN LABS said, “Cyber-attacks are endemic across the globe. This trend is on the increase. Just one attack can severely harm reputations and finances. SOLARIN is pioneering new, uncompromising privacy measures to provide customers with greater confidence and the reassurance necessary to handle business-critical information.”
