A Swiss company named Sirin Labs has launched world’s first ever blockchain smartphone named Finney, which works perfectly securely on blockchain networks and runs customised Android 8.1 Oreo operating system called Sirin OS.

Long-talked blockchain phones aren’t just another gimmick anymore as a Switzerland-based company named Sirin Labs has officially launched Finney – world’s first ever revolutionary smartphone that supports blockchain networks for cryptocurrency trading. The flagship blockchain phone features some first of its kind specifications like a ‘cold storage wallet’ for storing cryptocurrencies – this wallet will not be connected to the internet, making it secure from online attackers permanently. To ensure that everything is safe on the phone, Finney will be enabled with blockchain technology so that it can be immune to hacking and hence provide a secure platform for finances of the user.

About the specifications of the phone, it is one hell of a flagship which runs on customised Android 8.1 Oreo operating system which they call to be ‘Sirin OS’. If you are worried about the legitimacy of the new customised operating system, worry not because it has been verified and certified by Google. The Finney will pack a Snapdragon 845 paired with 6GB RAM and 128GB storage. On the imaging front, the phone will pack a 12-megapixel, f/1.8 lens with laser autofocus, while up front you’ll find an 8-megapixel, f/2.2 snapper with an 85-degree angle. The device packs a 6-inch, 18:9 display with a pixel density of 402PPI. The phone packs a 3,280mAh battery.

The manufacturer claims that Finney blockchain smartphone is completely “tamper proof” and has a physical security switch for wallet protection. Other key features include security-oriented specs like biometrics and lock pattern to access data from the phone. However, the most highlighted feature of the Sirin OS would be the preinstalled walled for cryptocurrencies. Speaking of a purchase, the company is selling the phone for $999. It’s unclear whether users can pay cash, as you’re required to pre-order the device with so-called SRN tokens. If you are really into buying this phone, they currently have 10% off offer if you pre-order Finney. And the brand is trustworthy because they have previously launched a much touted handset called Solarin, which positioned itself as a $16,000, ultra-secure Android phone; so go get one.
