Turing Robotic Industries has announced a phone which is almost indestructible and extremely secure. The Turing Phone is made from a special “liquid metal” called Liquidmorphium which is stronger than steel and titanium. That might sound familiar to a few readers – Apple has in fact been in partnership with a company which manufactures an alloy called Liquid Metal for some time.
However, it’s not the ultra tough metal that makes the Turing Phone quite unique. It has privacy protection similar to that offered by BlackBerry’s BES12 enterprise system. Turing Phone has end-to-end mobile authentication to keep all your personal information and communications safely away from prying eyes.
Decentralized-authentication allows users to exchange sensitive data, credit card information, travel itineraries and private conversations, knowing their information will safely and securely reach only the device intended – Turing Phone.
However, the device also has some pretty nice specs. It has a 5.5-inch 1,920 x 1,080 display, a 13 megapixel back camera and an 8 megapixel front camera. All that is powered by a 2.5 GHz quad core Snapdragon 801 processor that has 3 GB of RAM. The company also added a 3,000 mAh battery, it runs Android 5.1 and features a third party UI on top of that.
The Turing Phone is also waterproof thanks to a Binnacle Ocean Master nano coating, giving IPx8 certification. As well as the usual sensors such as an accelerometer, gyroscope, compass and light sensors are a fingerprint and humidity sensor. The fingerprint sensor isn’t on the front or back though – instead it’s located on the side. There is also no micro USB port, as the phone charges using a magnetic connector.
This strong and secure device will be available later in the summer, and available to pre-order from July 31st in three variants – 16 GB, 64 GB and 128 GB which will cost $610, $730 and $870.
