Israeli StartUp; Sirin Labs officially launched its super high-end Android smartphone “Solarin” on Tuesday, at an event in London, bringing to an end years of speculation about what the company’s been cooking up behind the scenes, Venture Beats reports.

Sirin Labs that was founded in 2013, have created the what they would call “Rolls-Royce” of smartphones; an advanced device that combines “the highest privacy settings, operated faster than any other phone, built with the best materials from around the world.”

Solarin promises “the most advanced privacy technology, currently unavailable outside the agency world,” and has partnered with Communication Security Firm; KoolSpan to integrate chip-to-chip 256-bit AES encryption which is apparently the same technology as used in military communications around the world.

“Cyberattacks are endemic across the globe. This trend is on the increase. Solarin is pioneering new, uncompromising privacy measures to provide customers with greater confidence and the reassurance necessary to handle business-critical information,” Tal Cohen, CEO and Co-founder of Sirin Labs said in a statement.
