For a while things were getting a bit stale in the smartphone industry, but there have been a few innovations to shake up the status quo this year. One of the most intriguing new examples of this is the new Turing Phone, from Turing Robotic Industries.
As you can see from the image above, this new entrant into the smartphone arena isn't afraid to try out a bold new aesthetic design for the device. Luckily, this new device isn't just a pretty face. There are two notable characteristics of this smartphone which go beyond skin deep.
The first is that the device is designed to be more secure than your average smartphone. The Turing Phone includes built-in server-free encrypted communication between owners. It also includes a fingerprint reader that encourages you to lock down your device, and an Apple-like magnetic charging system.
The other slick feature of The Turing Phone is that it is designed to be tougher and more damage resistant than your average device. It is made of a material called Liquidmorphium that is supposedly stronger than steel or titanium.
Here's the rest of the internal specs:
- 5.5-inch FHD display
- Snapdragon 801
- 3GB of RAM
- 13MP rear camera
- 8-megapixel front camera
- 64GB or 128GB of storage
