Singapore-based Flexxon announced its partnership with Lenovo to produce three different laptop series that come with embedded cybersecurity.

They will be launching them in September and are designed to cater to a range of different users.

The models look to be an ultraportable called the Zepto series, the Ace series that combines speed and performance, and a general-purpose laptop, the Cyberpad series.

But the unique factor will be the inclusion of Flexxon’s X-PHY Cyber Secure SSD. X-PHY delivers threat detection and resolution right at the NAND device storage level and uses firmware-controlled AI capabilities that operate to detect and deal with anomalies. This is more secure than relying on software-based security solutions.

 

Pricing and availability

At this moment we don’t have any of the specs or planned pricing for the three different models. We will update this article when we receive more information.

*Update*

We have the specs of the different models that are now available for pre-order online now. Note that the pricing available is only in US dollars.
