Last summer Canonical requested a 32$ million funding for its Ubuntu Edge Smartphone in an attempt that may have failed but made quite some noise, leading to other companioes doing the same. Today it’s ASAlpha, another company asking for 3.2$ million through crowd-funding for its super encrypted smartphone called Quasar IV that promises to offer unprecedented security to its users!
The idea behind the manufacturing of the Quasar IV smartphone is one: “never leave a trace in the digital world”. It packs a 5 inch display @ 1080p resolution, quad core Snapdragon 800 SoC @ 2.3GHz, 3GB of RAM, a 3300 mAh battery, double backside camera (13MPixels) for Augmented Reality apps and a front facing camera at 8.0MPixels. All data is safely encrypted in 64 or 128GB of the internal storage and they can increase up to 128GB more of encrypted data in the cloud.
The device runs on a special OS called QuaOS that relies on Android 4.3 and incorporates Quatrix an encryption software designed by QSAlpha. The device’s hardware chip is heavily encrypted in order to protect the identity and the personal data of the user. The Quasar IV also offers NFC, Bluetooth 4.0 support and IP57 certification. It will be available for the first funders in April and you can find more about it just by watching the following video.
