Remember the ultra-secure smartphone I told you about last summer called the Blackphone? Well, it's getting a serious upgrade that the NSA won't be happy about.

The original Blackphone runs a more secure version of the Android operating system and features encrypted voice and video calls and text messaging. Blackphone 2 and the new Blackphone+ tablet take user privacy a step further.

Both devices will of course use version 1.1 of the PrivatOS Android fork, which features an OS-level virtualization feature for keeping sensitive material away from less-private apps, as well as a privacy-focused app store.

The new phone will also feature a larger 5.5-inch screen and upgraded 8-core processor and 3GB of RAM.
