Boeing's Black smartphone is ideal for double-agents, self destructs if tampered with

Unauthorised entry detected. All selfies will be destroyed in three, two, one...

Boeing has revealed the details of its secretive Black phone, and it wouldn't be out of place in the next Bond flick.

Aimed at security and defence customers, the Android-running Black won't set spec fiends' hearts racing.

Its 4.2in 960x540 display is definitely not the sharpest around, and its 1.2GHz dual-core innards wont be winning speed races anytime soon.

It does however have a back panel which can be expanded to work with biometric scanners, solar chargers and satellite receivers.

Not only that, but the Black will automatically self-destruct all of its data if it detects any tampering.

Both the case and screws are sealed with epoxy and tamper-proof covers, and if a break-in is detected the Black will delete its data and software, turning it into nothing more than a useless brick.

While the exact methods remain a mystery, we're hoping for some sort of in-built sulphuric acid chamber which secretes its contents, burning the Black's innards from the inside.
