Silent Circle will release in September the Blackphone 2, an Android-based smartphone that is optimized to protect security and privacy so that none of your data can be discovered or used by a third-party. […] Silent Circle originally launched to provide secure voice, text and email services. But in 2014, the company released the first Blackphone, which cost $600 and ran on a version of Android the company has developed, called PrivatOS. – Chris O’Brien, VentureBeat
