Turing Robotic Industries announced yesterday that their new Turing Phone, the world’s first liquid metal-frame smartphone, will be available for pre-order beginning July 31, 2015.
The Turing Phone is the industry’s first designed from Liquidmorphium™, a new metal stronger than titanium or steel that is unbendable and dissipates shock more efficiently. This comes as good news to those worried about the bendability of their phones. The bending issue came front and center last year when the new iPhone 6 and 6+ was shown to bend under moderate pressure.
In addition, the phone boasts an IPx8 waterproof rating (submersible up to 30ft) and leverages a proprietary end-to-end decentralized authentication to create a trustworthy network for exchanging data and for voice communications. Check out the specs listed below.
Here are the Touring Phone specs.
[toggles title=”Press Release”]Los Angeles, CA – (July 2, 2015) -* Turing Robotic Industries (TRI), the pioneer in trustworthy mobile device technology, today announced that ten thousand units of the world’s first liquid metal-frame smartphone will be available for pre-order beginning July 31, 2015. Pre-orders can be placed at www.turingphone.com. In addition to the unique frame, Turing Phone provides trustworthy communications based on decentralized authentication technology. Turing’s end-to-end authentication system creates a protected communications network that is entirely insulated from cyber-threats and privacy intrusions. Within this circle of trust, users can exchange sensitive data such as social security numbers or bank wiring instructions and know that the information will reach only the device intended. The Turing Phone is molded from a single unit of Liquidmorphium™, improving shock absorption and preventing screen breakage. Enhanced by TRI’s Binnacle Ocean Master nano-coating technology, the Turing Phone will boast an IPx8 waterproof rating with the ability to be fully submerged under 30 feet of water. Customer pre-ordering the new phone will receive a bonus accessories package including a mobile Bluetooth keyboard, gaming Bluetooth earphone, gaming Bluetooth headset and mobile gaming controller. *Pricing in the U.S. is as follows:* 16GB -$610 64GB -$740 128GB -$870 The Turing Phone will be available in four color schemes to be announced on July 22. TRI plans to release its Turing Library software development kit (SDK) in August and will open its first U.S. retail store by Q1 2016. About Turing Robotic Industries Corp.
