Privacy and mobile technology are the hot topics of today. As the value of digital information far eclipses that ever held under lock and key, we seek innovative encryption apps and secure technologies to protect ourselves. And yet no solution quite fits.
This is where SOLARIN comes in. Through a network of extraordinary partners, suppliers and passionate experts, and guided by the vision of our founders, SIRIN LABS has created a truly smart phone. Aimed at the international business person who carries a lot of sensitive information but doesn’t want to compromise on usability, quality or design, SOLARIN combines advanced technology to make what we believe is the best mobile phone in the world.

Following over two years of R&D at bespoke facilities in Sweden and Tel Aviv, SOLARIN is made up of over 2,500 inner components within a meticulously designed exterior to achieve fast, seamless connectivity across any continent. Delivering tomorrow’s technology, today, to the toughest audience with the most exacting requirements.

‘We do not accept that price drives what’s available in technology. With SOLARIN, we break the rules.’ Moshe Hogeg, President and Co-founder, SIRIN LABS

SOLARIN is a truly global phone – offering faster data transfer and lasting performance

SOLARIN is powered by a Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM 810 processor with X10 LTE and Wi-Fi, delivering high-performance connectivity. It offers up to 450 Mbps downlink and up to 150 Mbps uplink speeds, coupled with support for 24 bands LTE compatibility, setting a new benchmark in global usability. SOLARIN comes with far superior Wi-FiTM connectivity than mainstream phones. It supports 802.11ac 2×2 MU-MIMO (multi user multiple input, multiple output) technology, offering up to three times the speed and capacity of conventional 1×1 configuration. In addition, SOLARIN incorporates revolutionary WiGigTM (802.11ad) multi-gigabit Wi-Fi technology. WiGigTM (802.11ad) offers speeds of up to 4.6Gbps, enabling near-instant cloud access, and synching of photos, videos and media, wire-equivalent docking and high-quality, low-latency video streaming, and more. Add to this the strongest battery in the premium and high end phone category, together with Qualcomm® Quick ChargeTM for fast charging and power optimisation algorithms to create the essential travel companion.

Boasting a screen with unbeatable clarity, depth and colour intensity, and the richest and loudest mobile phone speaker systems available

Featuring a 23.8-megapixel camera, with laser autofocus and industry-leading four-tone flash, plus a front facing flash and 5.5” IPS LED 2k resolution screen, SOLARIN offers a display capable of colour that is distinct, pure and rich – a remarkable 120% sRGB colour gamut. The beam forming audio and state-of-the-art sound system uses three bass- boosted speakers, all linked through a smart amplifier to maximise volume but control distortion, producing a clear unsullied sound.

Designed by world renowned industrial designer Karim Rashid and meticulously assembled by engineers more used to making the world’s finest watches.

From the construction of its unique metal matrix composite chassis – typically used in the aerospace industry for its absolute rigidity – to incorporating titanium panels for structural strength, using tough Corning® Gorilla® Glass 4 to help protect the curved display screen as well as the camera lens and a technical leather back panel – only materials with optimal functionality made the final grade.
‘Every single design decision and material choice was based on performance and functionality. The product you hold today unites the very best of the world stage. Our network of extraordinary partners is the culmination of our unwavering focus on quality, not cost, regardless of complexity.’ Fredrik Öijer, VP Product, SIRIN LABS
