According to Silent Circle, it is not hard to dominate a company that has an estimated 0.4% of the market share. Silent Circle Security was extremely positive at the Mobile World Congress (MWC) 2015 about the new Blackphone 2 and stated it would end the Blackberry era once and for all.

We’re replacing BlackBerry, we don’t care that BlackBerry’s CEO is throwing nasty things about us onto Twitter. We’re going to dominate them.

Silent Circle made similar claims when they released the first version of the BlackPhone last year. The security hype did not live quite much up to expectations. In August 2014, N4BB pointed out that hacker @TeamAndIRC managed to root the Blackphone in just five minutes by enabling the Android Debugging Bridge (ADB) without unlocking the bootloader.

The new Blackphone claims that they have added quite a few more security features to its new device. Other than that, there is no available information right now. But in order to win over loyal BlackBerry fans, Blackphone 2 must produce something really unique to grab their attention.

The Blackphone 2 has a more premium look and feel than the original device, with an all-glass front and rear along with a larger full HD display, at 5.5 inches across; a faster 64-bit processor and more RAM. It will go on sale later this year.
