The Turing phone arrives and stuns us with its flamboyance! But how much does it cost?

The new Turing phone is ready to be pre-ordered and you will be amazed by its looks. This un-hackable device is the epitome of the smartphone in the sense that it is deconstructed and reconstructed around the premise of an in-hackable piece of tech. It was designed around this functionality only and it is supposed to keep you and your data completely safe from any malware, virus or data digger around. You can pre-order one now if you want to pay between $610 – $1299, but there’s a catch we will elaborate more about in a minute.

The Turing phone has a hardened version of Android 5.1 with a fingerprint reader, no ports and end-to-end encryption. No ports means no USB devices to connect it to and no jack for headphones or a charger. The spec list includes a 5.5-inch 1080p LCD screen plus a Snapdragon 801 processor paired with 3GB of RAM, a 13MP camera and a 3000 mAh battery.

 

Thing is, there’s a catch to pre-ordering. You can do so only if you reserved one of these babies a while back. If you did or know someone who did it, you can pre-order, send or get an invitation to pre-order. No one knows if there will be a limit on invitations per year or a limit on these smartphones altogether.

You get three standard Turing phone versions plus a limited edition Dark Wyvern Glaedr, a gold-accented flamboyant device. This gold one costs the most of course, being situated at $1299, whereas the other three range in price according to their storage option: 32GB for $610, 64GB for $740 or 128GB for $870.

 

But wait! we have more! you can dress your Turing phone in armor! A Turing Armor case adds some features of their own, including a USB port, a jack for headphones, 128GB of extra storage, an extra 3000 mAh battery and WiGig wireless tech. WiGig wireless tech is branded as the first 5G wireless technology attempt and it is aimed at data transfer between the phone and the case storage, but it also works between two cases. It is said that this type of connectivity can move at 2.5Gbps. The case has not yet appeared in any official photos.

Just in case you really want a Turing Phone for its looks or its security but you can’t pay up front, there’s a deal floating around named “ServiceOne=”. This way you pay $21 to $43 per month on the phone and you can upgrade to the second generation Turing next year in the process. You would have to return the original when you get the second one though.

[The rumor mill] OnePlus 2 to launch this July

OnePlus 2 is one step closer to the shelves as we speak because the mother-company is rumored to have marked the device for launch in July. The One Plus One device was one of the most talks about smartphones last year, in part because of its terrible horrible no good invite system and also because of its spec price ratio. The device presented the spec build of a 2014 flagship at half the price.

 

OnePlus 2

 

 

This year’s OnePlus device is rumored to feature a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810( the much hated easily-heating processor that broke the Internet during spring) paired with 3 GB of RAM, a 1920 x 1080p display plus a 13 MP camera and a 3300 mAh battery to power it all.

OnePlus’s co-founder Carl Pei recently said that the company is taking into consideration customer feedback from the One to improve the Two device by preparing a smoother launch with more support for customers. Moreover, the company is further developing its team and future vision by working hard on the new smartphone.

It appears that the horror of the invite system is not over as the second OnePlus flagship will be achievable via the same process as before. The new handset will also have a higher price than One ($300).

The Chinese company recently started two new contests with an interesting prize: an all-expense paid trip to the headquarters in Hong Kong. One contest is taking in to consideration a no edits photo competition on Instagram where users can upload a photo with the tag @oneplustech detailing how they were able to accomplish their photo. Officials will choose 10 photos and users will vote on the final winner.

The second contest takes place in video format and it’s supposed to be a personal confession or vlog in which people can share their OnePlus story by saying what they like about the One, what they expect from the future device and basically why THEY are the biggest One Plus fans ever. The videos will be judged on quality, originality and production. One winner will be chosen by the judges and one by the community. You can make your entry viable with THIS FORM.

This makes both contests have a total of three winners which will get a full-paid trip to Hong Kong to the OnePLus HQ where they will experience the OnePlus Two firsthand and apparently participate in a secret project.
