The Next Turing Phone ‘Appassionato’ is World’s first mass-produced Liquidmorphium smartphone



Being a smartphone enthusiast, it is hard not to know about the Turing Phone. The company which goes by the name Turing Robotics Industries (TRI) first announced the world’s’ most secure smartphone. The smartphone was however delayed forever and even when it was finally ready to ship, the company fitted a different OS inside the device (sailfish instead of Android). Hence Turing doesn’t really have the best reputation when it comes to smartphone making. But then we saw a couple of smartphone renders with an insane set of specs like 18GB RAM, etc. And now the company’s next phone is called “Appassionato’.

Interestingly, the company has announced that it is partnering with Chinese smartphone manufacturer TCL to this next phone. If you don’t know, TCL is indeed one of the big players in the industry and is selling devices under a lot of brands like Alcatel and Blackberry, etc. Well, this doesn’t necessarily mean making and launching a successful device, but yes, it will definitely benefit Turing with the whole process. Also, the Appassionato appears to be a great device overall, at least as far as the hardware goes.

According to the specs sheet, the Appassionato will be made from the metal alloy Liquidmorphium. This will be the first of it’s kind and it will also have a carbon coating to give it a ceramic feel from the outside. The display will be covered by an ultra-strong sapphire glass. Internally, it will be powered by the last year’s Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 SoC, but unfortunately, we don’t have much info other than this. Coming to the software side of things, we do know that it will run Android 7.1.1 Nougat out of the box and we hope they don’t end up shipping this as well with Sailfish OS.

The Appssionato will also come with a digital assistant called “Sir Alan”. This is rather an interesting take on digital assistant since it will have the more traditional voice commands along with on-call human helpers to offer more real-time assistance. We don’t know how this will turn out in the final retail version and hence we will have to wait until the device launch in the market. Speaking of launch, the company says that they are aiming to start shipping the devices to the customers in September this year. As far as the pricing goes, the “elite” PX8 variant will cost $1,099 and the “premium-luxury edition” GX8 will cost $1,599.

They are undoubtedly on the pricier side and hence we would like to know your thoughts on this. Would you be interested in buying this smartphone or at least take a look at it once it comes out for the classy hardware choices?
