According to Engadget, San Francisco and Shenzhen, China-based Turing Robotic Industries’ upcoming Turing Phone is a device that emphasizes security and durability.
Starting with the security, the smartphone uses its own server-free encrypted communication between users and a fingerprint reader. There is a magnetic charging system, as well.
The device’s chassis is made from “liquidmorphium,” a metal alloy that supposedly is stronger than steel or aluminum. It also contains aluminum, ceramic, and plastic, which, with the alloy, should make the phone be able to take falls with ease.
The specs include last year’s Snapdragon 810 processor, 3GB of RAM, a 5.5-inch, 1080p screen, up to 128GB of internal storage, an 8-megapixel front-facing camera, and a 13-megapixel rear-facing camera with dual flashes. In addition, the Turing Phone supports North American and European LTE bands.
Turing explains that the phone should be available for shipping starting on August 10th. It’ll cost $740 unlocked for the 64GB version and $870 for the 128GB variant. It promises that some carriers will support its device, but it has not said who those carriers are yet.
