The Aquarius company presented the Aquarius CMP NS M11 smartphone – “the first pocket personal computer, which is completely designed and manufactured in Russia.” The first production batch includes 200 devices, but by the end of 2021 the company will deliver 3,000 more devices. The assembly of Aquarius smartphones takes place at the production complex in Shuya, the city of the Ivanovo region.

Aquarius CMP NS M11 complies with the standards of secure devices that store confidential information and personal data. It is also protected from dust and water ingress according to the IP68 standard. This makes it suitable for use by emergency personnel like the Ministry of Emergency Situations and employees of critical information infrastructure. Aquarius is already developing an explosion-proof modification for organizations with special operating conditions.

The technical characteristics are only partially disclosed: it is known that the Aquarius CMP NS M11 is equipped with a 6.67-inch display and a 5000 mAh battery, and it is based on an eight-core ARM processor.

“The catalyst for the development of the corporate mobility market in the last year was a pandemic. The massive transfer of employees to remote work has led to the need to include personal devices in the corporate environment of enterprises. Corporate IT executives sounded the alarm and started talking about the need to move from corporate mobility by the BYOD model [Bring your own device, то есть использование сотрудниками личных устройств] to the COBO model [Company owned, business only, то есть использование сотрудниками рабочих устройств компании]… And this became the driver of our developments. We position the PDA as a device for accessing corporate services through applications in a protected mode. One of its elements is communication channels, which are protected by special software with the use of modern technologies for protecting the data transmission medium, ”stressed Vladimir Stepanov, President of Aquarius.

By default, Aquarius CMP NS M11 runs on the operating system KasperskyOS, but the company plans to release modifications with other platforms as well: the Russian Aurora version 4.x and, if required, the version of Android 9.0 specially adapted for corporate security requirements.
