SIRIN LABS just introduced a military-grade, cost-no-object smartphone called SOLARIN. Aimed at the international business person who carries a lot of sensitive information but doesn’t want to compromise on usability, quality or design, SOLARIN combines advanced technology to be the best mobile phone in the world. Not only does it boast ultimate security, but also sleek design using the finest materials, and the fastest chips and speeds currently available.
Following over two years of R&D at bespoke facilities in Sweden and Tel Aviv, SOLARIN is made up of over 2,500 inner components within a meticulously designed exterior to achieve fast, seamless connectivity across any continent. SOLARIN features a carefully curated privacy package to keep your private information, private – unrivalled in terms of its sophistication and accessibility.
SOLARIN comes with Zimperium state-of-the-art mobile threat protection that thwarts the broadest array of advanced device, network and application mobile cyberattacks, without impairing usability or functionality of a top-of-the-range smartphone. In addition, SOLARIN incorporates the most advanced privacy technology, currently unavailable outside the agency world. SIRIN LABS partnered with KoolSpan to integrate chip-to-chip 256-bit AES encryption, the same technology that militaries around the world use to protect their communications, offering the strongest possible mobile privacy protection worldwide. Activated by the unique Security Switch on the back of the handset, the phone enters a shielded mode, presenting an exclusive suite for fully encrypted calls and messages.
“SOLARIN is pioneering new, uncompromising privacy measures to provide customers with greater confidence and the reassurance necessary to handle business-critical information,” said Tal Cohen, CEO and Co-founder, SIRIN LABS
SOLARIN is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor with X10 LTE and Wi-Fi, delivering high-performance connectivity. It offers up to 450 Mbps downlink and up to 150 Mbps uplink speeds, coupled with support for 24 bands LTE compatibility, setting a new benchmark in global usability. SOLARIN comes with far superior Wi-Fi connectivity than mainstream phones. It supports 802.11ac 2×2 MU-MIMO (multi user multiple input, multiple output) technology, offering up to three times the speed and capacity of conventional 1×1 configuration. In addition, SOLARIN incorporates revolutionary WiGig (802.11ad) multi-gigabit Wi-Fi technology. WiGig (802.11ad) offers speeds of up to 4.6Gbps, enabling near-instant cloud access, and synching of photos, videos and media, wire-equivalent docking and high-quality, low-latency video streaming, and more. Add to this the strongest battery in the premium and high end phone category, together with Qualcomm Quick Charge for fast charging and power optimisation algorithms to create the essential travel companion.
Boasting a screen with unbeatable clarity, depth and colour intensity, and the richest and loudest mobile phone speaker systems available. SOLARIN features a 23.8-megapixel camera, with laser autofocus and industry-leading four-tone flash, plus a front facing flash and 5.5” IPS LED 2k resolution screen, SOLARIN offers a display capable of colour that is distinct, pure and rich – a remarkable 120% sRGB colour gamut. The beam forming audio and state-of-the-art sound system uses three bass-boosted speakers, all linked through a smart amplifier to maximise volume but control distortion, producing a clear unsullied sound.
Designed by world renowned industrial designer Karim Rashid and meticulously assembled by engineers more used to making the world’s finest watches.
From the construction of its unique metal matrix composite chassis – typically used in the aerospace industry for its absolute rigidity – to incorporating titanium panels for structural strength, using tough Corning Gorilla Glass 4 to help protect the curved display screen as well as the camera lens and a technical leather back panel – only materials with optimal functionality made the final grade.
‘Every single design decision and material choice was based on performance and functionality. The product you hold today unites the very best of the world stage. Our network of extraordinary partners is the culmination of our unwavering focus on quality, not cost, regardless of complexity.’ Fredrik Öijer, VP Product, SIRIN LABS
