Blackphone 2 makes its official launch in the U.S.

At a time when BlackBerry has already come clear with its plans for its Android-powered “Priv,” it’s clear that there is a need for more secure smartphones in the market. Blackphone was one of the pioneers of this concept with Android, even though our review of its first-generation variant didn’t match our expectations. After vaguely showing us the second iteration at MWC 2015, it’s time to get a glimpse of the real deal.

The Blackphone 2 has just become available in the U.S., and the company’s plans are to finally launch a product that’s worthy of being considered both elegant and powerful. We’re talking about a glass-on-glass design for a 5.5-inch 1080p display, an Octa-core Qualcomm Snapdragon CPU, 3GB of RAM, and a 13 megapixel camera at the back powered by a BSI sensor, in addition to a 3060 mAh battery.

Everything sounds fine and dandy until you see the $799 price tag, which the company compensates with a few Silent Circle services bundled with the phone. If you’re interested in giving this secure smartphone a try, you can hit the source link, or wait for our review soon. The launch outside the US still says “arriving soon.”
