Liquid Metal Built: Turing Phones To Ship Out In December 2015

What if you will be soon be hands-on with one of the best Android phones this year, that too are unhackable, unbreakable and waterproof, then you have to wait a little more time for the craziest phones you’ll see this year, that doesn’t even have a USB port coming from Turing Robotics Industries.


The smartphones that aims to put security, durability, and fashion above all else. With no headphone jack, connector, nevertheless, it can be charged it with a plug that looks a clone of Apple’s MagSafe. Phones that are made of “liquidmorphium,” or liquid metal, which is claimed to be more stronger than stainless steel and titanium, which impervious to bending. The reflective qualities of liquidmorphium are unique, and Chao likens the mirror-like appearance to a skycraper.

The aforementioned meterials that sets the stage for the upcoming Turing era,  which companies make security, encryption, and safeguarding your data their top priority. Stock feature of the Phone is the Turing Imitation Key, the Robotics has built its own end-to-end, decentralized authentication scheme that is fully-functional offline since it relies on your device’s private key. Chao says, this makes it difficult for intrudors to intercept or comprmise your messages and sensitive data contained in Turing’s apps, though it admits noting is unbreakable. If they put almost 10,000 men on the machine, surely they can crack it.

This new initiative from Turing Robotics is based on Android 5.1 Lollipop, and the phones still allows full access to Google Play and popular apps. According to Chao, the finished interface will differ substanially, and the fortunate custom skin you see in the iamges below isn’t final. Still, potential buyers probably want to install a custom launcher. Sensors include fingerprint, accelerometer, gyroscope, magnetometer, proximity, ambient light, temperature, and humidity.

The phone which is made of liquid metal and of course is fully waterproof thanks to a nanocoating that shields its internal components. It can even survive in the pool and most submersions without any issue. Specs-wise, the Turing is powered by a 2.5GHz Snapdragon 810 chipset and features a 5.5-inch FullHD (1080p) display, sports encrypted communication and is as said built from a metal alloy called “liquidmorphium. Paired with 3GB of RAM, and has IPx8 waterproof rating.

With an 13MP main camera, the Turing also comes with top end 8MP Selfie shooter, is backed by a 3000mAh battery, and while speaking of connectivity options, this includes integrated NFC, 4G LTE support. The Turing Robotics claims the fingerprint sensor’s accuracy rivals Apple and Samsung. The Turing Phone’s interface animates as you move and rotate the device, uses custom UI running on Android.

You’ll be able to preorder the Turing Phone starting July 31st for $610 (16GB), $740 (64GB), or $870 (128GB). Ten thousand of them will be made to start.

This security-focused Turing Phone has announced that Foxconn will be the exclusive manufacturer and shipments will begin on December 18. Reservations for the liquid metal-clad phones started earlirt this month.
