Security in mobile can be a top priority for some people. And for them here comes glorious Turing phone. People now days save and keep a lot of private data, information, pictures, videos, etc on their phone. Privacy is one of the biggest concern for them and. It is pitched as the unhackable Turing Phone. It is a phone that comes with the highest security features, new modern design, and a very solid body. This is a splendid toughie which is waterproof, stronger and cooler obviously.
Apple iPhones have a very good reputation in security and privacy. It is because they have a dedicated encryption system. Samsung also has Knox which is certified by many security firms and agencies. Know is also hardware based and it is very secure. In the race of top-notch security, we have a new phone. Now comes a phone named after a famous man in the field of cryptography “Alan Turing”. It is a new company and a very new product. This has created really good hype due to its protection level.
Specifications: The phone consists of 5.5” display with 1080×1920 resolution. It has a 2.5 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor bundled with 3 GB of RAM. The phone is running a new Android 5.1 Lollipop. Just like Galaxy A7 and E7 this also has a 13 MP rear camera but an 8 MP front camera. Both are capable of recording 1080p videos. The battery is actually non-removable 3000 mAh battery. There are few variants with different storage capacity and they are not cheap. The 16 GB model will cost $610, 64 GB will cost about $740 and 128 GB costs $870.
Build and Design
The Turing phone is a really promising device as it is using the best in class build elements. It uses “Liquidmorphium” or liquid metal which is strong allow of Aluminium, Zicronium, Copper, Nickel, and Silver. It is tougher than Titanium which is fascinating. The phone has solid geometrical built with sharp edges. This might attract some or bothe some by a little bit. But considering its power we can let it pass. There is a fingerprint scanner on the side for biometrics. The phone is coated with waterproof hydrophobic nano paint coat.
There is no micro USB port of 3.5 mm headphone jack. It uses a magnetic connector technology to charge the phone. It looks like a technology that as Apple uses in its Mcbook. As there are no headphones we are only left with Bluetooth option. According to the company, this is to reduce the number of options to access the phone using hardware and connectors. The back uses textured high-grade plastic. Turing mone has a modern modular look which looks splendid and unique.
Security as Selling Point
Most of you might have seen the movie The Imitation Game. The movie shows about Alan Turing and cryptography which is a very vast and complex field. This phone is named Turing as respect. However, this phone is a special device with powerful cryptography power. There is special hardware or security chip. The main part here is Public key and private key stored on that chip of your phone. A private key is like the master key which will decrypt any data or communication encrypted by anyone using the public key. This makes communication safer.
Turing phone uses Google Android and Google already has lots of features for security. They are always finding new measures and patching the old bugs. Other big name manufacturers like Apple and Samsung also have a pretty good security system. Anyways this phone shows a lot of promise in security. It might be really good and useful for the enterprise and other hi-tech users. There will only be 10,000 pieces according to the company.
