Gurugram-based VVDN in partnership with Irish company Embedded Downloads today unveiled blockhain technology based smartphone BitVault for Rs 75,000 a unit. “This is the world’s first blockhain technology based smartphone. We are using only Android user interface in it but the core operating system has been developed by us in India in last 1.5 years. It will be priced around $1,200 or Rs 75,000 at the time of launch,” VVDN Technologies co-founder and vice president for engineering Vivek Bansal said at the launch event. The phone does not support Google Play store and has developed its own mobile application, he said. “Our main focus is secured communication. We will initially focus on enterprise customers, defence and police for sale of this product. We are also in talks with ITI Limited to incorporate it in their army communication project,” Bansal said.

The phone supports 4G VoLTE and comes with 2 GHz octacore processor of Qualcomm, 13 megapixel main camera and 8 mp front camera, 4GB RAM and 64 GB external storage. “We have partnered with electronic contract manufacturing firm Napino for making this phone at their facility in Majedar,” Bansal said. The phone does not support external memory storage and data from the phone can be transferred to other computer only through its app for personal computers, he said.
