We all know that Geeksphone is working on a Blackphone, a super secured and privacy-focused phone but not NSA proof. The smartphone runs Android and will soon find its way onto your geeky hands.

Finally, a phone that honors your privacy. It was recently unveiled at the Mobile World Congress in Barcelona by SGP Technologies (Silent Circle and Geeksphone).

This smartphone was announced last in January but we knew very little. It’s priced at $629. Pricey but remember this phone is focused on privacy and security for your worry-free use.

Specs include the following:

2GHz quad-core processor
4.7-inch HD IPS display
LTE connectivity
16GB of storage
8-megapixel rear/1.3-megapixel front cameras.

This Android phone will run the PrivatOS version and will include some special privacy tools: an encrypted app suite, secure cloud storage, anonymous search and browsing, and a VPN.

Phone will be available initially in Europe thos coming June.
