The Vietnamese corporation said it signed a supply contract with a partner from an EU country which Quang did not specify but revealed it is a global military power.

“Those who will use the high-end smartphones produced by us are very important people,” Quang shared. “We have worked with our partners to develop a highly-secure operating system which is based on our BOS for the model.”

The special order is expected to open up a new business model, which is suitable to Bkav’s strengths including cyber security and premium hardware production, Quang said. “We may see the image of a European leader using the Made-in-Vietnam smartphone one day.”

Bkav also plans to launch some new models from flagship to mid- low range smartphones this year, however, did not disclose the specific date and product name.

Last November, the Vietnamese maker exported its Al View security cameras to the US, which will be installed at the headquarters of Qualcomm Incorporated in San Diego, California, making a step closer to fulfill its goal of becoming the  five leading camera manufacturers in the world.

Bkav leader also announced that the launch of its true wireless AirB headset using Qualcomm’s chipset will be available as planned.
