Turing recently put out what it's called the most secure phone ever, and now plans to follow it up with a space-agey tablet/phone hybrid with unreal specs.
Computer or smartbrick?
Turing's first foray into devices was the Sailfish OS-running Turing Phone, which promised to be super secure, with end-to-end encryption.
At first, it was supposed to run Android, but it was scrapped in favour of Jolla's Sailfish OS, with Turing claiming that even with all its tweaks that Sailfish seemed to be the more securable solution.
This new device, dubbed the Turing Monolith Chaconne, has unreal specs. Besides the 6.4in 4K display, it tries to fit in three Snapdragon 830 processors, 18GB RAM and 768GB internal storage with two microSD slots. As for the camera, it's going to be 60MP in the rear, and the battery is rated at 120Wh. The Swordfish OS will be running the whole thing, which will also come with four nanoSIM slots.
Considering the Turing Phone project has not been smooth-sailing, with delayed shipping and complaints about it using Sailfish instead of Android, it's hard to be optimistic about Turing's success with this next device. It sounds way too highly-specced to be true, and we'd also like to know: just why would anyone need four nanoSIMs on one device?
We'll see if Turing makes its 2018 target for this new device and seeing the unreal specs, we bet it'll cost a kidney and maybe another limb as well.
