The ultra-secure Blackphone 2 is joining the Android for Work initiative

Remember the Blackphone, that decent smartphone that was trying to ride on post-Snowden fears about government spying by advertising itself as a privacy-first, security-first smartphone? Well, its successor was announced a couple of months ago, known as the Blackphone 2, and now the company behind it has revealed the smartphone’s specs and has announced that the Blackphone 2 will be joining Google’s Android for Work initiative. 

Silent Circle, the company behind the security-focused Blackphone, today announced that its new Blackphone 2 smartphone has joined Google’s Android for Work initiative. Not only will this move help get the secure smartphone into more users’ hands, it will also allow users to easily separate personal applications and information from work-related content. This also marks the continued expansion of Silent Circle and its enterprise privacy platform, which includes a combination of devices, software and services that aim to offer users much more robust security measures. As for the device itself, the Blackphone 2 was announced back in March. It features a 5.5-inch Full HD IPS LCD display, an octa-core 1.7GHz Snapdragon 615 processor, 3GB of RAM, 32GB of on-board storage as well as microSD expansion up to 128GB. It also has a 13MP rear-facing camera, a 5MP front-facing shooter and runs Silent OS, Silent Circle’s customized version of Android. The company says the new secure device will come with expanded support for existing Mobile Device Management (MDM) programs, as well as a new feature called Silent Meetings which allows for encrypted conference calls.
