If you’re looking to treat yourself this year with a new smartphone then it may be worth looking beyond the usual considerations. Sure, we already know we will be getting the iPhone 6s this September. We also know that it’s extremely likely that Samsung will attempt to spoil Apple’s party by launching its fifth-generation Galaxy Note 5 a month earlier in August. But if you want to step away from the iPhones and Galaxy phones of this world and try something new, why not consider the new Turing Phone, the world’s first smartphone with a fully liquidmetal shell.
The newly created unique device, manufactured by Turing Robotic Industries, will be the first device of its type within the smartphone market that comes with a shell manufactured entirely out of liquidmetal. The company behind the innovative cellular device make it sound like a technological superhero by describing it as “ultra-secure and stronger than steel”. Turing Robotic Industries are also marketing the device as one of the most innovative and secure smartphones of its kind thanks to its “world-class security” that executes “end-to-end mobile authentication”.
Security aside, the device is actually manufactured from Liquidmorphium, a one-of-a-kind metallurgy. Liquidmorphium, apart from being difficult to pronounce, is a “pioneering” amorphous liquidmetal alloy that’s actually tougher than titanium and steel. It seems that Turing has set about creating a device that is as tough and secure structurally as it is in regards to privacy protection and the security of the data on it. The Turing Phone will be powered by Android Lollipop (5.1) with a proprietary Turning user-interface. A quad-core 2.5GHz chipset will work in assistance with 3GB of on-board DDR3 RAM to give the device its processing power.
Turing’s smartphone will ship with a 5.5-inch FHD display with a 1920 x 1080 pixel resolution and a 13-megapixel rear mounted camera module. Like to think of yourself as having a strong selfie game? Well, the Turing also caters for those individuals with a front-facing 8-megapixel offering. A non-removable 3000mAh battery is accompanied by the usual Fingerprint reader, Bluetooth, WiFi, and NFC connectivity options with waterproofing capabilities. It’s actually as visually appealing as it is technically impressive making for a great little device.
Consumers in the United States and China can expect to be able to pre-order the device for $740 from July 31.
