Dubbed as the ‘Rolls Royce of Smartphones’, Sirin Labs, an Israeli startup has come up with the most expensive smartphone priced at $14,000 (over Rs. 9 lakh). Interestingly, if you are looking for a completely private and secure conversation this is your phone.
It offers military-grade security with hardware based end-to-end 256-bit AES encryption. Your calls and messages will be secured over a FIPS 140-2 certified network, ensuring a complete private communication accessible to intended participants only. You can turn on a completely isolated environment at a flick of a switch located at the back. All calls and messages will be encrypted after it is turned on.
Appearance? The phone sports a 5.5 inch curved Corning Gorilla Glass 4 screen with 16 LEDs backlight to ensure minimum color blending and presenting individual colors in their most distinct form. The Solarin has a 8MP front-facing camera with a dedicated flash. The rear camera is massive 24MP shooter with a four-tone flash module, laser autofocus and f/2.0 aperture lens.
Solarin has 3 high-fidelity loudspeakers with 90dB loudness and stereo sound and four surrounding microphones. It also supports Qualcomm aptX quality encoded audio support.
The phone comes with the most cutting-edge of cellular and wireless technology. It supports 24 bands of LTE, high-speed 802.11ac 2×2 MU-MIMO Wi-Fi and WiGI. With all this combined, the phone boasts a downlink of 450Mbps and uplink 150Mbps.
Solarin is powered by Snapdragon 810 Octa-Core 64-bit processor clocked at 2Ghz coupled with Adreno 430 GPU and 4GB of LDDR4 RAM. It also comes with 128GB of internal storage with no option to expand it. It runs on a heavily skinned Android 5.1 Lollipop OS with the latest security patches right upto the month of May.
With a 4,000mAh battery with a standby time of over 2 weeks and talk time of up to 31 hours, the Solarin is not a sleek smartphone by any means. It measures a hefty 250 grams and is 11.1 mm thick. The back panel is made of exclusive Italian leather and is available in four colour variants. It features Qualcomm Quick Charge 2.0.
