The Turing Phone is here – you can reserve yours today!
Turing is now accepting reservations on its website. You read right, reservations. This is because you are not requested any money like it happens on regular pre-orders. All you have to do is enter contact information and choose the desired colors and storage capacity for your device.
What makes the Turing phone special?
This smartphone is unique in the sense that it is branded as a secured device in terms of software. It does not have any jacks or USB ports because you will have to charge it via a proprietary cable with no data connection support, and you get a Bluetooth headset when you buy the device.
It is encrypted all around for the greater purpose of keeping everything secured. The smartphone has a public key that allows you to send messages to users and a private key you can use to decrypt them. Everything is handled on local hardware and there are no servers because this way, there are no security holes that can be exploited.
The Turing phone has an angular body with IPX8 water resistance and it is made of the “Liquidmorphium” alloy, which is supposed to be a mélange of metals stronger than titanium.

The heavily secured Turing Phone smartphone is already being reviewed by several connoisseurs and opinions seem to differ. While some like the device, others consider it disgusting because of its software interface and lack of ports. The device, however, stands out among this year’s flagships, and we will soon see what it truly offers for ourselves.
