This privacy-centric smartphone can now be purchased in the US for no less than $799 USD, while UK and the rest of the world will get it soon.

For those who value their privacy, spending almost $800 USD on a secure smartphone is definitely a good deal. While Silent Circle's Blackphone 2 is capable of keeping the personal data private and out of reach of any potential intruder, it also offers very good specs when compared to its predecessor.

Silent Circle Blackphone 2 has the following specs and features:

  • Processor: Qualcomm Snapdragon 808 SoC
  • Memory/Storage: 3 GB RAM; 32 GB internal storage and microSD support up to 128 GB
  • Display: 5.5-inch multitouch with 1,920X1,080 pixels and Corning Gorilla Glass 3 protection
  • Cameras: 5 MP front, 13 MP BSI on the back
  • Connectivity: 4G LTE, WiFi 802.11 a/b/g/n/ac, Bluetooth 4.0 LE
  • Operating system: Android-based Silent OS (previously known as PrivatOS)
  • Weight/Dimensions: 0.36 pounds; 6X3X0.31 inches
  • Battery: 3060 mAh with Quick Charge 2.0

In addition to the above, this handset comes with multiple security-focused features, including different logins for different tasks (one for communication-related apps and one for the documents, for example), end-to-end encrypted VOIP calling with any Android or iOS handset, secure conference calls with up to six Silent Phone users, secure messaging, secure boot, fast OTA updates, and more.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
