A $2,650 Sirin V3 phone launched as rebadged Galaxy S21 with military-grade security



Samsung Galaxy S21

Around three years ago, Sirin Labs made its debut in the smartphone market with its first attempt by launching the world’s first blockchain smartphone called Finney. Moving on, the company has recently launched its second smartphone named Sirin V3.

According to the info, Sirin V3 features almost the same configuration and features like Samsung’s latest Galaxy S21 flagship but it is equipped with the highest level of security. Consumers can regard it as a rebranded Galaxy S21 that comes with a price tag of $2650.

The new Sirin V3 is said to offer top-level information security and network protection capabilities including dual identity functions, which allows users to seamlessly switch between personal mode and confidential workspace mode.

Sirin V3 incorporates two totally separated and protected zones with its Dual-Persona solution. Personal space ( on the left) for the user to install apps from Google Play Store only for his own personal usage.

At the same time, Secured space ( on the right) – a highly secured and encrypted partition. In this space, no apps can be installed except for the pre-loaded apps. It contains a military-grade anonymous encrypted call app ( end to end ).

Aside from this, consumers can also download apps in personal mode, restrict whitelist or blacklist applications, and prohibit some potentially risky behaviors, such as keyboard replacement, USB debugging, safe mode, factory reset, and download mode at startup.

It is important to mention that the military-grade security performance of the Sirin V3 smartphone is its main selling point. Besides, this device also has a multi-layer network security suite, including a behavior and machine learning-based intrusion prevention system (IPS) for real-time active network protection.
