We talked about OSOM Products Inc back in its day, a new one Start up Created by many people who at the time were under the command of Andy Rubin, one of the fathers of Android, in the failed cell phone company Essential.
Initially, not much was known about this company, which was founded in February of this year. But now, in-house director and former head of Essential R&D Jason Keats wanted to share more information about his new venture, which he says is intended “Reinventing privacy”.

In fact, it ensures that The main thing was an 80% good ideaThis new company aims to complement that idea with a really interesting product for consumers.
In that sense the idea is Focus on privacyThis gives consumers an option that no longer exists today: to choose What private data is shared with companies and how is it shared?.
To achieve that, Start up has the idea to start altogether up to eight devices over the next three years, inclusive Smartphones. On this subject he explains that OSOM phones will try to be better value for money than the competitionwithout that means sacrificial features or add-ons. And the fact is that, in Keat’s words, OSOM products are no longer segment-oriented bonus From the market:
We do not target our products to ultra-premium users, we create premium products. We can make money from it thanks to a few more surprises to be announced next year.
