In the interview, the colorful software guru also revealed that the secure Android smartphone would be priced at $1,100 (roughly Rs 70,000). The smartphone was reportedly built in partnership with a cyber security firm called MGT.

The device will feature physical switches, ones that will give owners the freedom to physically disconnect the battery, antennas for Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and geolocation. These switches would also let users disconnect the camera and the microphone so that you can be sure that your device is not tracking you in any way possible. The device will be able to identify and refuse to connect to any other IMSI-catcher device and will also feature a web search anonymizer.

While software is key to smartphone security. Hardware switches that physically disconnect components on a smartphone do sound like a cool idea.
