Gionee to Launch the Safest Smartphone in the Market

The vast majority of us will easily agree that, nowadays, smartphones are among the most precious and valuable items we own. Most of the times that importance has nothing to do with the smartphone’s market value, but with what is inside: our personal data, private photos, and maybe even other sensitive information.

Most smartphone companies, such as the ones building Android phones, tend to focus their privacy and security efforts on the software side, while others, like Apple, do turn to hardware, where Touch ID is the flagship example, but lack some efficiency when it comes to what is stored on the smartphone – as soon as someone manages to pass through the lockscreen, the information can be freely viewed.

So, the question is raised: is it possible to do better than this and come up with a way to improve the security of users’ personal content and guarantee identity theft protection? News coming from China indicate that Gionee, one of the country’s biggest mobile phone manufacturers, surely thinks so, as it is reportedly about to launch a smartphone that really addresses these issues.

At first, some rumors said that the Gionee M6 would feature an encrypted chip inside the phone, most likely giving it the ability to protect all the data stored inside the phone with encryption.


Following the rumors, schematics of a smartphone (pictured above) were leaked in the Chinese social network Weibo, with the person leaking them focusing on what kind of chip was in the phone. Shortly after, Gionee’s Vice-President Yu Lei confirmed the rumors to be true, and finally the actual smartphone shows up on China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center MIIT’s website (see below), China’s certification entity, providing concrete evidence that the M6 is real and will likely soon hit the Asian market.


The Gionee M6 has the potential to be a truly breakthrough novelty for the mobile phone industry, as it might actually be the safest smartphone ever launched, and it will only natural that other brands adopt similar safety measures.
