Chinese ODM Topwise Communication is all set to debut with its Comio smartphone brand in India tomorrow and the company says that its key USP is its strong security features.
The IT Ministry has asked 21 smartphone vendors to communicate the methodology for securing the data of customers. Some of the smartphone vendors include Samsung, Apple, Oppo, Lenovo, Gionee.
Comio maintained that its focus was to keep the security aspect on priority basis. “The smartphones don’t embed any third party app, which basically endanger the security of devices. Also, We are using clean OS (With Google being the default partner) with no third party involvement,” says Sanjay Kalirona, CEO & Director, Comio Smartphone.
“If a mobile phone is lost or stolen, any customer can remotely control that by logging into a third party website and lock the phone, hence, the data will be saved,” he further added.
The company would be launching smartphones in the price band of Rs 6,000 to Rs 15,000.
Meanwhile, CMR said that while a lot of security measures like encryption of data, fingerprint sensors, etc. have already been incorporated in devices, particularly of mid to premium price handsets, emphasis must also be put on the value chain responsible for software aspects like OS, UIs and apps within the purview and hold an extended audit in the same context.
