How to keep all your data on your phone safe? There is a solution!

Reading Time: 2 minutes

The solution is BOB.
It might sound funny but actually this acronym stands for „Blok on Blok” phone. The modular, blockchain-protected phone was presented at CES 2019 at the beginning of this year, and the upcoming CES 2020 awarded him the prestigious Innovation Award Honoree.

„BOB marks a big step forward in our mission of creating a Blockchain Internet, a fully decentralized network where every piece of data shared is under the owner’s control” Zac Cheah, PundiX co-founder and CEO, said.

BOB, previously called XPhone, offers a completely decentralized ecosystem, thanks to which users have complete control over their data. It is based on the Function X OS open-source operating system. Because it uses the blockchain ecosystem, every action on the phone, such as sending SMSs, making calls, browsing websites and sharing files, takes place in a decentralized network, making it highly encrypted and thus secure. Each BOB unit is a node that supports the entire Function X blockchain system.

In addition, the phone supports Android 9.0 Pie in traditional mode. It’s powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 chipset with the Adreno 512 graphics processor and connected to 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of mass storage. BOB has a 4.97-inch AMOLED screen with Full HD resolution. The phone is equipped with a main camera with a resolution of 48 MP and a front camera with a resolution of 16 MP. In addition, it is also a modular telephone, which means that users can assemble it with various components to create personalized versions. Each piece of the BOB camera is delivered with a MOD mounting kit containing several standard modules. Non-standard parts can be bought on the company’s website.  

 

The phone is now available for pre-order for a starting price of $599 and of course, considering Pundi X main activity, payment in cryptocurrencies is also possible.
