You can now reserve the anticipated Turing phone, known for being the first all-liquid metal phone.
The phone comes in three color schemes: purple and gray (beowulf), blue and red (pharaoh), and red and white (cardinal). Like the iPhone, the Turing offers three storage sizes: 16GB, 64GB, and 128GB, with corresponding prices of $610, $740, and $870.
The Turning phone is made entirely of Liquidmophium, an incredibly strong material better capable of handling shocks, like when you drop your phone, than other metals. Unlike the iPhone 6 and 6 Plus, you wont be able to bend the Turing phone, though you may be able to break it under high pressure.
It’s also said to be incredibly secure. In an interview with VentureBeat’s Mark Sullivan earlier this year, Turing Robotic Industries CEO SYL. Chao boasted that the phone’s signature end-to-end encryption system is basically unhackable.
To clarify, there’s no option to pre-order this phone, as we had previously thought there would be. Rather, you can reserve the phone now for purchase later — meaning you’ll get notified when Turing Robotic Industries is ready to take your money.
For now, there’s no word on when the Turing will become available.
