The Sirin Finney Phone is being marketed as a block-chain smartphone. It has two screens – the main 6-inch display and a secondary 2-inch display that is revealed by an upward slide mechanism. The Finney Blockchain Phone has an embedded cold storage wallet for crypto-currency transactions with support for major crypto-currencies and tokens.
If you have followed th history of secure phones, you will immediately notice the resemblance it bears to the $14,000 Sirin Solarin, which did not sell as well as the manufacturer hoped it would. No surprise, considering the price tag.
Eventually, Sirin Labs gave up , but have resurrected now to offer the Finney phone which they claim again is the most secure smartphone. This time, the cost has been pegged at a more welcoming $999.
Whether or not there will be enough people interested in a blockchain phone is left to be seen. But it does have flagship specs, offering Snapdragon 845 processor, 6 GB RAM, and 128GB internal storage, among other features. Lastly, Sirin is hping t leverage on Lionel Messi’s clout to drum up visibility for the phone, as it carries an endorsement by him.
Sirin Labs Finney runs Sirin OS, which the manufacturer claims is an “ultra-secure and Google-certified” fork of Android 8.1 Oreo.
