Sleek, strong, and secure. What more could you ask for?
Back in April, we got our first glimpse at the Turing Phone and yesterday the company behind it (Turing Robotic Industries) officially announced this new, super strong smartphone made of Liquidmorphium liquid metal (world’s first!). For those unfamiliar with this particular material, all you need to know is that it’s stronger than both titanium and steel.
Under the Liquid Metal Hood Is Impressive Hardware
If you’re already interested in the Turing Phone, then you’ll be glad to hear that it boasts not only a cool design, but some fantastic specs, too. These include a 5.5” display with a full HD resolution (1920 x 1080 pixels), Android 5.0 Lollipop, a 13-megapixel rear camera, an 8-megapixel front one, and a 3,000mAh battery.
Furthermore, the Turing Phone sports Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 801 processor, clocked at 2.5GHz, 3GB of RAM, and either 16, 32, or 64GB of built-in storage. When you take all of these specs into account, you’ll notice that they almost match those of some of the most popular flagships on the market today.
What else is there that makes this handset special? well, you don’t get to charge it via a microUSB port, but a magnetic charger, and it offers a fingerprint sensor which is located on the phone’s side and not in e.g. its Home button. In addition to all of that, the phone’s completely shock-proof and thanks to a special Binnacle Ocean Master nano-coating, it can be submerged in 9 meters of water (30 feet).
The Turing Phone: Secure and Private
Turing Robotic Industries want you to feel safe while using your phone, which is why the company has focused on making a smartphone with the best possible security and privacy features. As TRI states, the Turing Phone uses “a protected communications network that is entirely insulated from cyber-threats and privacy intrusions.” So, if a time comes for you to exchange sensitive personal info (e.g. social security numbers) with someone via your phone, you won’t have to worry about a third-party intercepting your conversation midway.
