It’s hard to look at the Boss smartphone as a phone at all considering its 7-inch display, but that’s what it’s being advertised as on its Indiegogo page. While this gargantuan smartphone boasts some average specs, what makes it so interesting is that its the first smartphone to “have rooted Tor encryption for your privacy.”
Even though it has a large 7-inch display that’s usually seen on tablets, the Boss is actually a dual-SIM Android smartphone that comes with Tor privacy-enhancing features. Announced at CES 2015, the Boss phone is currently seeking funding on Indiegogo, aiming to reach its $150,000 goal by March 2nd. The Boss phone offers a 7-inch display with 1920 x 1200 resolution, Mediatek octa-core processor, 16GB storage, microSD support, 8-megapixel camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, global 4G LTE and 3G support, 3,000mAh and Android 5.0 Lollipop. The Boss phone’s most interesting feature seems to be the included Tor functionality, with the company saying that Boss is the first phone to be built from the root level with Tor inclusion, and thus capable of offering increased security.
