This year has seen a number of devices being released or announced which are less than typical Android devices. One sub-sector of the Android smartphone market which has been developing of late, is that of a ‘secure phone’. One which can protect your data as well as offering you all the benefits you would expect from a smartphone. However, one secure smartphone which has been gaining a lot of attention over the last few months is one from Turing Robotic Industries (TRI). This is of course, the Turing Phone and one which offers security through end-to-end encryption, durability through its design and build, as well as generally decent specs.
In terms of those more ‘normal’ specs, the Turing Phone comes equipped with a 5.5-inch display which makes use of a 1920 x 1080 resolution. Inside, the Turing Phone comes loaded with 3GB RAM and powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor. In terms of cameras, the Turing Phone comes equipped with a 13-megapixel rear camera, which is coupled with an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. Storage comes in three variants, 16GB, 64GB and 128GB and there is also a number of other features including a fingerprint scanner, a 3,000 mAh battery and the device comes running on Android 5.1 (Lollipop) out of the box.
Of course, some of the more unique selling points for the Turing Phone is not the run-of-the-mill specs, but instead its emphasis on security and durability. As well as being a secure smartphone, the Turing Phone is designed to be one which makes use of an additional level of durability and protection thanks to the company’s use of a liquidmorphium frame. In fact, Turing Robotic Industries have now released a number of videos designed to highlight just how durable the device really is. The new videos showcase many of the more common tests which smartphones are now put through and often fail. The first video highlights the Turing Phone’s resistance to being bent. The next video on offer, is what is more commonly now referred to as the ‘drop test‘. While the last video highlights the waterproof design and abilities of the smartphone.
