Turing promises the moon with the 2017 Cadenza: dual Snapdragon 830, 60MP camera, 12GB RAM
The Sailfish OS-based Turing Phone offers secure software combined with a proprietary liquid-metal alloy chassis that’s touted to be stronger than aluminum and steel. The phone was initially slated to launch last year, but ran into significant delays, with the first wave of pre-orders going out in July. Turing Robotic Industries, the company behind the phone, has detailed plans for its 2017 handset, the Cadenza. The company is looking to integrate artificial intelligence to “dramatically improve our day to day mobile communication,” promising specs that sound far too good to be true.
According to Turing CEO Steve Chao, the Cadenza will feature a 5.8-inch QHD display, two Snapdragon 830 SoCs with a total of 16 Kryo CPU cores, a 60MP “iMAX 6K Quad Rear Camera with Triplet Lens/T1.2”, 20MP front camera, 12GB of LPDDR4X RAM (2 x 6GB modules), four SIM card slots, and a staggering 1TB of storage.
Here’s the spec sheet in its entirety:
The Cadenza will run Swordfish OS, an as-yet-unannounced fork of Sailfish OS that incorporates deep machine learning. This looks more like someone at TRI put out a spec sheet crammed full of all the buzzwords they could think up. In slightly more believable news from this dimension, the folks at Acer have gone utterly mad and put a 21-inch curved screen on a gaming laptop.
