The Blackphone 2 and Blackphone+ tablet will both go on sale later this year, running updated versions of the company’s Android-based PrivatOS operating system and suite of communication apps.
The Blackphone 2 will arrive in the second half of 2015 and will add a faster processor, more RAM, a longer lasting battery, and a larger display. The Blackphone + tablet will follow later in the year but the company is currently keeping its specs totally under wraps.
The new version of PrivatOS will include Spaces, a feature that promises to keep personal and work apps separate, allowing employers to remotely wipe their ‘spaces’. The company announced last year that the update was coming.
The update will also include Silent Meeting, a new, secure conference calling system for multiple users. Silent Circle says the system won’t feature access codes or ask you “who’s just joined?”
