Unhappy with your fragile new smartphone? Meet Turing’s latest Android smartphone the Turing Phone.
Manufactured by Turing Robotic Industries, the Turing Phone is a niche device that focusses on security and durability. The smartphone features a body made out of liquidmorphium, an amorphous alloy of zirconium, copper, aluminum, nickel and silver. The resultant material is claimed to be stronger than aluminum and steel. So as far as the durability goes, the Turing Phone should be among the most durable smartphones in the market currently.
Turing also claims the smartphone is among the most secure out there. It features a Turing Limitation key security chip that authenticates encryption locally on the device. Since the authentication is saved offline, it becomes impossible for hackers to find an exploit. To lock the device, you will need to use the fingerprint scanner that the device features.
Moving on to the specifications, the Turing Phone is powered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chipset and includes 3GB of RAM along with 128GB built-in storage. The display measures 5.5-inches and has a resolution of 1080 x 1920. There is a 13MP camera at the rear with dual-LED flash and an 8MP camera on the front for selfies and video calls. It draws power from a 3,000mAh capacity battery and runs on Android 5.0 Lollipop.
The 4G LTE smartphone is compatible with major LTE bands in the North American and European markets. Turing has priced the 64GB variant of the device at $740 while the 128GB variant has been priced at a slightly higher $870. Both storage variants will ship on August 10th.
