This device is targeted at users in government and defense agencies, as well as employees of privacy-minded companies. To that effect, the handset runs on Sikur's own fork of Android called Granite OS. The security company claims the phone's architecture has been designed with "multiple layers of protection" and features "various authentication layers."
The device has 16 GB of internal storage, and Sikur says its data can be uploaded in an encrypted form to its cloud service. From there, users can use the company's specialized applications to securely access it from other devices.
The GranitePhone packs a 5" 1080p screen and is powered by a Qualcomm 615 SoC and an Andreno 405 GPU, along with 2 GB of RAM. A 16 MP back camera, an 8 MP selfie snapper, and a 2,700 mAh battery round out the specs. Privacy-minded individuals or companies can order the handset right now for $849.
