How valuable is the information on your phone? If you think it's worth over six digits, Israeli start-up Sirin Labs just announced a smartphone for you.
The Solarin costs £9,500. After tax and conversion, that's roughly $16,500 or AU$22,700. The selling point of the phone is its KoolSpan military-grade encryption and Zimperium-based threat detection.
"Our core consumers are international business travellers that spend much of their lives on the move," company co-founder and CEO Tal Cohen said at the product's launch, according to CNN. He later warned that hacking "is something that can happen to any one of us...it's just a question of if you're targeted or not."
The Solarin houses a 5.5-inch LED display with a 2K 2,048×1,080-pixel resolution screen. On the back is a 23.8-megapixel camera, and its sound system boasts three bass-boosted speakers. The phone is also said to be the first to use WiGig technology, which allows for speeds of up to 4.6Gbps.
That all sounds impressive. But, then again, $16,500...
