The Boeing Black smartphone is a high-end, self-destructing phone designed for government agencies and companies. The android phone is made for a very specific demographic and is not meant to be tempered with.

Most of the details about the phone are being kept a secret. However, we know that the FCC has approved; Boeing's counsel member Bruce Olott made a statement saying, “Boeing’s Black phone will be sold primarily to government agencies and companies engaged in contractual activities with those agencies that are related to defense and homeland security. The device will be marketed and sold in a manner such that low-level technical and operational information about the product will not be provided to the general public.”

The phone is a sealed device and only to be sold through undisclosed agreements. Also, the phone can not be destroyed by force. Any attempt to break open the case or device will trigger a function that deletes the data and software, making the device inoperable. The Boeing Black phone will be like something out of a James Bond movie. Stats for Self-Destructing Smartphones Trending: This Year & Buzzing
