Sirin Labs is working on a Blockchain phone called Finney. Yesterday, it released the specifications of its phone which is unusual for most manufacturers. But Sirin Labs is not your conventional phone maker, so it is understandable as to why they’ll do this.
The Finney will have a 6” display with the trendy 18:9 aspect ratio. A promo video shows the phone will have a notch at the top. Sirin also says the display will have an oleophobic coating.
Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 845 will power the device along with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of expandable storage. It will have a single 12MP f/1.8 sensor on the rear with focus on low-light imaging. The front camera will be an 8MP f/2.2 85° wide-angle sensor.
The phone will run Sirin Labs’ own SIRIN OS which will be based on Android 8.1 Oreo. The secure open source OS will also be licensed to interested OEMs.
The battery will be bigger than 3000mAh with fast charging support. It will also have an ultra-secure fingerprint sensor, high-quality speaker, and “side-fire audio design”. Other features include Bluetooth 5.0, NFC A and NFC B, dual-band Wi-Fi, and support for 22 LTE bands.
The Finney will have glass on the rear (Corning Gorilla Glass), a metal frame, and an IP52 rating. It will sell for as much as $999.
That is a bit high but apart from the already flagship specs, the phone will have high-level security features to keep your cryptocurrencies and tokens safe.
