Sirin Labs unveils the first ever blockchain smartphone, FINNEY

Isreal-based Sirin Labs has unveiled the first blockchain smartphone on November 29 during its launch event in Barcelona, Invest In Blockchain reports.

Dubbed FINNEY, the smartphone comes with a price tag of $999 and has at its core blockchain technology. Being the first of its kind, it allows users to make full use of dApps as well as the ability to securely store and transact cryptocurrencies.

Aside from the blockchain enhancements, the FINNEY comes packed with everything you’d expect from a premium smartphone. A 12mp camera comes standard as does 128GB of storage with expandable memory.

Some time ago, Sirin Labs launched their own cryptocurrency, SRN. As stated in the whitepaper, users buying FINNEY with SRN will be granted a 10% discount.

FINNEY will operate on a fork of the Andriod operating system, called SirinOS. In addition to Google Play, the OS integrates with blockchain capabilities and a dApp marketplace. The dApp marketplace will prove users with access to new dApps and provide opportunities to learn about new crypto projects.

Furthermore, the phone will also support token conversion, allowing users to automatically exchange supported tokens.

FINNEY also has a secondary screen, called a “safe screen.” This two-inch screen located on the back of the phone provides a safe way to access the built-in cold storage wallet. It also comes with several features to make it the most secure phone for crypto users.
