In the past year, security concerns have exploded. With leaks and hacks coming in fast and thick, people are unsurprisingly worried about privacy and security. Some new start-ups are responding to the situation by creating devices that focus on security, in order to give customers some peace of mind. Blackphone kicked off the trend and now a new company, Briggs & Spriggs, is entering the game with the Boss Phone.
Boss Phone is a 7-inch Android device that puts security at the forefront. It’s selling point is that it’s Tor-certified and will feature Tor security features embedded at the root level, allowing it to be highly secure for private communications. Apart from security, Boss Phone features a 7-inch 1920×1200 display, octa-core MediaTek processor, 8-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 3000mAh battery, 4G LTE support, dual-SIM card support and Android 5.0 Lollipop. Boss Phone is unlocked and compatible with GSM networks.
Boss Phone is up for funding on Indiegogo and costs $275 for the first 50, $335 for the first 500, and $355 for everyone else afterwards.
