Holding “Ruselectronics”, belonging to the state corporation “Rostec”, will develop data encryption systems for YotaPhone, if sales of smart phones reaches 50 thousand per year, said in an interview with Itar-Tass CEO of the holding Andrei Zverev.
“Ruselectronics” can make such cryptomodules for YotaPhone, but the need for their commercial release has not formed yet. “We need at least 50 thousand units per year,” – said Zverev.
YotaDevices company, a developer of YotaPhone, declined to comment, noting that in the near future they are going to present their own pilot projects in the field of data encryption.
On January 27 the smartphone maker announced that for 1.5 months of online sales there have been sold about 8 thousand units and about 2 thousand phones were sold in several retail chains. “Rostec” clarified that YotaPhone was used by many federal officials, including the Prime Minister of Russia Dmitry Medvedev.
