There is a growing need for smartphone users’ privacy to be observed. Thankfully, there is a smartphone model that has been specifically aimed at keeping things private. The Blackphone 2 is an Android smartphone focusing on providing privacy to its user. It comes as the second iteration of the model manufactured by Silent Circle. Compared to its predecessor, the Blackphone 2 bears a sophistication evident in its front and rear Gorilla Glass covering. The phone features a 5.5-inch FHS 1080p display panel and runs on 1.7GHz octa-core processor with 3GB of RAM and an internal storage capacity of 32GB with a microSD card slot for expandable storage. While it runs on Android software, the Blackphone 2 comes with a proprietary Silent OS platform that includes a series of secure apps to ensure encrypted voice calls and messages. The phone is home to a 5MP front-facing camera and a 13MP rear-facing camera that helps capture memorable photos in a stunning fashion. Another welcomed change to the Blackphone 2 is its improved 3060mAh battery from the previous generation’s 2000mAh battery. It even adds quick charging capability, thanks to Quick Charge 2.0.
