Vietnamese cybersecurity firm Bkav exports Bphone to Europe

Vietnam-based cybersecurity corporation Bkav has exported its first batch of its Bphone to Europe, according to CEO Nguyen Tu Quang.

Quang said the order came from a military buyer and that the first Bphone will be used for “key staff”, without elaborating further.

He said Bkav has worked with its undisclosed partner to develop its own security and operating system for the phone’s product line.

Meanwhile, Quang noted that Bkav would no longer sell the Bphone B40 and B60 models domestically in their current form despite revealing plans last year for a launch.

Updating these two versions took longer than expected, rendering sales “no longer suitable for the market”, he said.

But after receiving an offer from a partner for a device with a “sleek design” and a high level of security for “key people”, the B40 and B60 series have been converted to specialised security phones, Quang added.

The CEO said AirB wireless headphones will still be released in the future.

Users will be able to purchase an upgraded B40 and B60 at Bphone stores, he said.
