Paranoids, Meet Your New Phone: Silent Circle’s Blackphone 2

Whether you are a paranoid being or simply want added privacy and/or security, this is the phone for you it seems. The second generation of Silent Circle’s Blackphone 2 brings privacy and security front and center. It does this by offering full device encryption, thanks to Silent OS – an interesting version of Android intended for enterprise customers, putting an emphasis on secure and worry-free daily routines.

If you thought the Blackphone 2 is another one of those ultra secure, but slow and outdated phones, think again. Powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 615 octa-core processor clocked at 1.7GHz, 3GB of LPDDR3 RAM, it has a 5.5-inch Full HD 1080p IPS display protected with Gorilla Glass 3, a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0 LE, and arrives in stores with a 3,060 mAh battery feauturing a Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0 technology. Not to shabby, is it?

“The launch of Blackphone 2 is a game changer for the mobile sector and for the way we provide individual and enterprise privacy,” said Bill Conner, President and CEO of Silent Circle. “Blackphone 2 combines an enhanced Android operating system with a suite of apps designed to keep your enterprise and personal information separate and private. We’re proud to deliver a safe and sexy device with a seamless user experience.”
