Silent Circle’s BlackPhone 2 is now available for purchase, so if you’re interested in picking up the privacy-minded smartphone, you can finally put an order in for one. Pricing comes in at $799, and it’s currently only available in North America, but for what it does, the BlackPhone 2 offers unmatched security on an Android phone.

The hardware has seen a pretty significant update from the original BlackPhone, including a 5.5-inch 1080p display, 3 GB of RAM with an octa-core processor, and a 3060 mAh battery that fully supports Qualcomm’s Quick Charge 2.0.

The real selling point on the BlackPhone 2 is the Silent OS skin that runs on top of Android. It offers fantastic security and encryption tools that other phones just don’t have, including virtualized spaces for keeping data separate, heavily encrypted communication apps, and it’s completely free from any carrier delays or bloatware.
