Turing Phone is extra-secure and stronger than steel


Turing Phone is an extra secure smartphone made with liquidmetal and comes with a “decentralized authentication technology” for additional security. The Turing phone is priced at $740 (Rs. 45,500 approx.) for the 64 GB version and $870 (Rs. 53,400 approx.) for the 128 GB variant and will start shipping in August.

The smartphone is made by Turing Robotic Industries, a San Francisco-based company. It has a unique body made from liquidmetal, which is a strong alloy made of five metals that’s often used for smaller parts, but has never been used for a whole device till now. According to the company, the material is tougher than both titanium and steel, which protects it from drops and scratches. The Turing phone is not waterproof, but the company said that could change.

It comes with a decentralized authentication technology which allows the device to recognize other devices like it and exchange information securely without having to verify things with a third party. Turing says that this authentication method creates a protected network that is “entirely insulated from cyber-threats and privacy intrusions”.

The smartphone has an inbuilt fingerprint sensor on the side for unlocking the phone. On the bottom of the phone is a magnetic charger like Apple’s Magsafe. Other specifications of the Turing Phone include a 5.5-inch 1080p display and a 2.5 GHz quad-core processor with 3 GB of RAM. The smartphone has a 13 MP rear camera and an 8 MP front camera.

TRI states, “TRI’s technology provides a dramatic improvement over the logic of Identity-Based Encryption, because both the master public key and the unique private key are anonymously pre-bundled into the phone”.
