Silent Circle's privacy focused android phone, the BlackPhone 2 arrives in Malaysia for RM 3,599
In terms of specifications, Silent Circle has given their private phone some specs worthy of 2015. That includes a bigger 5.5" 1080P display paired with a mid-range octa-core CPU from Qualcomm (Snapdragon 615), 2GB of RAM, 32GB of expandable memory, a 13MP rear camera with a dual LED flash, a 5MP front camera, LTE support, a 3,060mAh battery and support for Qualcomm's second generation Quick Charge technology.
The software in the other hand is a newer PrivatOS 1.1 which comes with all the Android features you would have expected but that's not the point of the BlackPhone 2. Features like always-on encryption, a security center feature, a new Spaces UI feature that splits the software into different modes.
As for pricing, a secure and private Android phone is not going to be cheap. DialogHub which is Silent Circle's distributor in Malaysia is pricing the BlackPhone 2 at RR 3,599 which is pretty steep if you compare it to competing flagship grade android phones. But bottom line, if you need a phone with lots of features to safeguard your smartphone experience and you don't want to but the BlackBerry Priv which is coming to Malaysia pretty soon then the BlackPhone 2 is your best bet.
You can now officially buy the BlackPhone 2 from 11street for RM 3,599.
