Sirin Labs Solarin : a $17.000 Android phone
Sirin Labs just unveiled Solaris, a true “smart phone” according to the manufacturer, that offers premium specs and first class security.
The world’s first truly “smart phone” ?
Sirin Labs just unveiled its new smartphone Solarin, an Android phone aimed at “the international business person who carries a lot of sensitive information but doesn’t want to compromise on usability, quality or design.” That’s why Solarin features a 5.5” IPS LED 2k resolution screen, with tough Corning Gorilla Glass 4 to help protect the curved display screen, and a unique metal matrix composite chassis. A very secured and high-class smartphone… priced at $17.000.
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.
But Solarin also incorporates the most advanced privacy technology, currently unavailable outside the agency world. 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.
Solarin is available online, but also at Sirin Labs store in Mayfair (London), and Harrods, from 30 June.
