The business’s first handset is the Xor Titanium, so named since of its Titanium chassis (no “faux-Italian names” here, according to Hutchison). Rather than attempt to beat Apple, Google and Samsung on specifications, the phone is a retro handset in almost every sense. It offers voice calling over 2G/3G, in addition to SMS text and, uh, that’s about it. The only nod to modernity is an air quality sensing unit.
Rather than try to beat Apple, Google and Samsung on requirements, the phone is a retro handset in nearly every sense. If 2 individuals have an Xor phone, they’ll be able to exchange calls and texts with end-to-end (AES256) encryption at the hardware level.
