Swiss tech firm SIRIN LABS has announced the launch of the world’s first ultra-secure, crypto-oriented smartphone dubbed ‘FINNEY’, targeting the increasing number of high-end crypto users, as reported by Vulcan Post.
The smartphone was reported to cost as much as S$1,899 (approx. US$1,367), a premium price tag even higher than that of Apple’s 256GB iPhone XS. SIRIN LABS has also made COURTS Funan the exclusive retailer for its FINNEY phones.
The key to its security lies in the company’s proprietary operating system, Sirin OS. Sirin OS is a Google-certified modification of Android, equipped with a machine learning-based cybersecurity suite that protects the phone from cyber threats, such as unsecured network hacks, malware, and data theft, both online and offline.
Arguably the most remarkable feature of the smartphone is its ‘physical crypto wallet’, a separate piece of hardware that can be accessed by sliding the top back panel of the phone upward. Being a physical e-wallet means better security, as it will only connect to the internet when the user sends or receives virtual currencies, unlike regular e-wallets that are embedded into the phone OS and are, therefore, constantly connected to the internet.
The phone will also offer a unique service that allows users to convert certain types of tokens into other types supported by the system, without having to depend on crypto exchanges.
