Finnish manufacturer Bittium has launched a new high-security level version of the Bittium Tough Mobile smartphone at the Critical Communications Europe exhibition in Copenhagen.
Targeted at authorities, the new Confidential classification level version of the Bittium Tough Mobile with back-end system features dual-boot functionality, making it possible to operate the device with two completely separate operating systems: Public and Confidential.
The operating system classified as Public is meant for personal communications with access to, for instance, social media applications, while the Confidential operating system is completely isolated and hardened for secure authority and information security use.
The Android-based LTE smartphone is powered by Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 Quad-core Krait CPU, and features Android 5.1 Lollipop, 2GB RAM, 16GB internal storage, 8Mp main camera, dual SIM slots and a microSD expansion slot.
Bittium is also exhibiting the Bittium Secure Suite device management and encryption software, as well as a wide variety of special accessories for Bittium Tough Mobile, which have been designed for demanding police and military use.
