Sirin Labs, a start-up company based in Israel, has their latest Phone- the Sirin Finney Blockchain Smartphone. Sirin labs claim that the Finney Blockchain Smartphone is ‘most secure phone‘ in the world. The phone carries the seal of approval of the renowned footballer Lionel Messi.
Two years ago, the same company released an Android-based smartphone that also claimed to be the ‘most secure phone’ in the world. But the problem was that it cost a fortune. The previous phone from Sirin Labs was priced at $16,000 (Roughly RS. 10,92,880) and that was a lot. The new phone, however, is rather economically priced at $1000 (Roughly RS. 63,000).
Talking about the technicalities, Finney Blockchain Smartphone runs on Sirin OS, an “ultra-secure and Google-certified” based on Android 8.1. There is a Snapdragon 845 processor, 6 GB of ram and up to 128 GB of expandable storage. There is only one 12-megapixel camera at the back and an 8-megapixel front camera. The battery is at 3,280mAh, not too good but not too shabby either. The 6-inch screen has an 18:9 screen ratio but it has hefty bezels on either side as well as the top and the bottom. And if that wasn’t enough, there is a notch as well. The design is bulky and boxy as well.
One of the most interesting elements of Finney Blockchain Smartphone the second touchscreen which pops out the back of the phone. The design reminds one of Oppo Find X’s camera. Sirin Labs comments that this will help the users communicate with other crypto-users.
The device is up for pre-order and will be available in USA, Tokyo and London in November 2018. Another thing to keep in mind while purchasing the device is that the payment is accepted only in SRNs, Sirin Lab’s cryptocurrency. Cash or any other form of payments are not accepted.
