Fiction is a part of life and our life is a bit influenced by it. From 221 Baker Street to Mi6, we have encountered many agents who work for secret services, protecting their country. And when we say influenced, we’ve always felt impressed by their ultra-cool gadgets that aid them under life-threatening situations, multitask from their smartphones and pull next to impossible tricks.
Consider few Hollywood characters like James Bond, Ethan Hunt from Mission Impossible or Jason Bourne who would make encrypted calls, track location, did facial identification and much more from their Sony, Apple and Motorola devices respectively. But have you ever considered if these devices could even support such hi-tech features wbhile they often fail to satisy even the general critics in one field or the other?
The answer is a little tricky, but some of those ‘security’ features do exist somehow but not on those unrealistic devices showcased on screen but on the below tailor-made devices for security agencies.
This innovative device was launched back in CES 2015 and is the most secure device till date. Their maker ‘Silent Circle’ which is an encrypted communications firm has worked on it very minutely and finally this is what the result looked like.
The phone runs on a modified version of Android but is fully encrypted, and claims to be even NSA-proof. It has an insane one-touch data wipe feature installed, just in case you get caught. Featuring a 5.5-inch Full HD display and many more stealth modes that are not usually present on our smartphones. Believe it or not, Blackphone 2 could even create different ‘Spaces’ i.e. 2 virtually different phones in the same device.
Blackberry is a big name when it comes to encrypted devices and we’ve all heard of the good old days when BBM even fell in controversies for the kind of encryption it provided. Yes, this device from the Canadian maker is still one of the most secured devices in the world of secret agents.
BlackBerry DTEK50 is loaded with features like periodic application tracking to monitor the system & its apps periodically for potential bugs, along with ‘Password Keeper’ to stores all your passwords together which too is encrypted by a password that could only be accessed by a single password.
It’s a perfect make for agents and comes with an elegant 5.2-inch Full HD display, a Snapdragon 617 SoC, and other features that provide for instant processing.
The aerospace giant Boeing in collaboration with the encryption king Blackberry created the Boeing Black, to synthesize a device for the secret nexus.
Boeing Black comes with a ‘self-destruct’ feature that triggers auto deletion of device data in case of any abrupt attempts to open up the device, rendering it into a worthless paperweight in a fraction of a second. If specifications are to be considered it comes with a 5.2-inch sharp display and a dual-core Cortex A9 CPU.
This smartphone is one of the costliest devices to be ever made and perhaps only in the hands of a few. An exceptional device meant for the most elite security agents. Solarin features a 256-bit AES encryption, almost similar to what the defense forces use to secure their communication, fashioning a physical button at its back to manually activate security features in case things go south. Packed within are top notch hardware starting from Snapdragon 810 SoC to an HQ 24-megapixel shutter at its rear, and a 5.5-inch 2K display.
The devices we mentioned are mostly out of reach for normal smartphone users, but when it comes to national security, money is never a factor. Hope you all had a great read and discovered devices that you never knew existed. Keep following our blog for more.
