After Canonical asked the world for $32 million to produce its Ubuntu Edge handset, $2.1 million seems like small potatoes, right? All right, it’s still a bunch, but QSAlpha’s got some big plans for the money. The Quasar IV promises unprecedented security, according to the company’s new Indiegogo campaign. That entails military-grade encryption, with either 64- or 128GB of encrypted local storage augmented by a lofty 128GB encrypted in the cloud. The idea here is to “leave no trace in the digital world,” and just to be clear, the company’s got a ninja in its pitch video to really drive the point home. In fact, ninjas were apparently QSAlpha’s starting point: “if a ninja had a phone, what would it look like?” We’d guess more sharpened corners and maybe some smoke bombs, but this is a start.
Apparently it would also feature an Android / Linux / Quatrix hybrid called QuaOS based on Android 4.3 and rock some pretty heavy duty specs like a quad-core 2.3GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 3GB RAM, 5-inch 1080p IGZO display, 3,300mAh battery, IP57 certification and dual 13MP rear facing cameras for a better augmented reality experience.
