At the beginning of the month, the Turing Phone broke cover. It’s a device that’s focused on security and privacy, with a bevy of software elements and hardware tweaks to make sure that the information present on the handset is yours and yours alone.
The Turing Phone is also billed as an incredibly tough phone, too, made from what the company calls “Liquidmorphium,” which is a liquid metal that’s said to be stronger than both steel and titanium. Put all that together in a relatively mid-to-high-end device, featuring a 5.5-inch 1080p display, a Snapdragon 801 quad-core processor with 3GB of RAM, 16GB/64GB/128GB storage variants, a 3000mAh battery, and Android 5.1 Lollipop with Turing Æmæth UI, and for anyone that’s worried about security, it could be the perfect handset.
Reservations were opened at the beginning of the month, and now the company has confirmed that if you secured your spot, you’ll be able to place your order for the Turing Phone on Monday, September 21. But, if you prefer to wait for what’s known as the “Dark Wyvern” version, which is a stark difference in color compared to the original model, pre-orders for that device go live on September 24, with a full payment of $999 due at the time of pre-order. The company also has a “Glaedr” special edition model, which will only have 3,000 made, and be available to pre-order for $1,299. You can see what the Dark Wyvern model looks like below:
By September 24, the company aims to have all reservations paid for completely, and then shipping is set to start on December 18.
