Foxconn Will Manufacture Sirin Labs’ Blockchain Smartphone
April 5, 2018 | Sirin Labs, the Israeli-founded startup, has announced that FIH Mobile, a subsidiary of the world’s largest contract electronics manufacturing company Foxconn, will manufacture its Finney, a blockchain-secured open-source smartphone. The Finney smartphone will help owners store and use digital coins like bitcoin. The agreement will merge the company’s cold wallet hardware, software, integration, and the Sirin OS with FIH Mobile’s development of main components like camera, display, and radio, Sirin Labs said in a statement. NoCamels reported in March that Chinese multinational telecommunications company Huawei was in talks with Sirin Labs to license its SirinOS operating system. Sirin Labs confirmed that the meeting happened, but have not made any announcements regarding it.
