Consider Getting This Blockchain Phone If You Want To Secure Your Data

This year, FunctionX's BoB Xphone has comeback with a new design and the same safety and privacy we all need for our personal data.

Smartphones haven’t done a really good job of protecting our personal data in this era. While they have end-to-end encryption as among other security features, our phone can be traced and tracked, either for collecting user data or ad targeting.

But last year, blockchain OS firm FucntionX introduced the BoB Xphone. This is essentially a blockchain phone to offer people a true encrypted experience. And though the company limited this device to only 500 units for 2018, 2019 seems to witness a bigger attempt from FunctionX.

Additionally, the firm has revamped the phone’s specifications a bit to catch up with this year. However, what makes the phone unique is probably its look, now having a retro-futuristic design that will make it stand out from the others. Users can even get custom 3D-printed parts to have a device unique to themselves.

In terms of specifications, the 2019 BoB Xphone houses an OLED screen measuring 4.7 inches with a 1920x1080 resolution. It’s powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 660 SoC, featuring 6GB RAM as well as 64GB internal storage. Regarding photography, there is a 48MP main camera on the rear along with a 16MP lens on the front for selfies.

This phone is secure due to its OS. The primary operating system is FunctionX that lets you stay 100% encrypted, including web browsing, texts, and voice calls. Besides, you can use Android Pie if you want Android apps for your tasks.

The phone packs a 3,300mAh battery and has a headphone jack.
