Security-focused Blackphone decides on Tegra 4i

The super-security focused Blackphone was first announced at Mobile World Congress in February, but today we're learning a little more about what makes it tick. Initial launch materials didn't specify exactly which CPU would be powering the Blackphone, but today sees the announcement that it will in fact be a Tegra 4i.

The Blackphone isn't really about the hardware – though the 4.7-inch HD IPS display, 2GB of RAM, 16GB of storage and 8MP camera aren't exactly low-end – but about the software it calles PrivatOS. It's Android, sure, but customized to meet the needs of the Blackphone.

Phones still aren't scheduled to ship until June and the initial batch of pre-orders has sold out.
