Company Turing Robotic Industries, which specializes in obscure masses organization systems data security, today announced the company smartphone. The latest gadget, named after the British mathematician and cryptographer Alan Turing, released a special chip encryption and body that is stronger than steel.
Turing Phone is a smartphone with a decent, but far from record-breaking performance: 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1920×1080 pixels, Qualcomm Snapdragon 801, 64 or 128 GB of internal storage, 3 GB of RAM, 13-megapixel main and 8-megapixel front camera battery 3000 mAh. As the operating system will be installed Android 5.0 Lollipop. Nothing special, though a low-power device can not be called.
However, in this device are a special system of protection under the responsibility of a cryptographic chip. Encryption and decryption of data is carried out with the help, that is, encrypted communication channel can be established only between the two smartphones Turing Phone. In the case of communication with users of other devices, the chip remains untapped and data is transmitted through open channels.
Another unique feature of novelty is the body, but rather the material from which it is made – liquid morphine. This amorphous alloy of zirconium, copper, aluminum, nickel, and silver. The head of the company said that it is more similar in structure to the glass, but stronger than aluminum or steel. Plastic, ceramic and aluminum are also present, but the basis of all the acts liquid morphine.
For safety and durability have to pay a lot of money: 64 GB version will cost $ 740, and a 128-GB version is priced at $ 870 (about 40 450 and 47 555 rubles, respectively). Sales are scheduled to begin on August 10 will be the first country in the United States. The device is clearly not designed for mass and representatives of public services and corporate clients, so that the manufacturer can hardly applied a serious effort to reduce the cost of the gadget and concentrate on safety.
