A few days ago, Turing Robotics Industries (TRI) had announced a smartphone named Turing Phone Cadenza that was said to feature insane specs like two Snapdragon 830 processors, 12GB RAM, and 1TB storage. While many are yet to decide whether to believe it or not, TRI has sent another newsletter mentioning about a new device that features even more insane specs.
It is the Turing Monolith Chaconne that is said to a device somewhere between smartphones and tablets. It is listed to feature a 6.4-inch 4K display but the insane part starts from here. There are said to be three Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 chipsets coupled with 18GB RAM and a whopping 1.2TB storage. The RAM is said to comprise of three 6GB LPDDR4 RAM modules while the storage includes three 256GB local storage along with two 256GB external storage slots.
TRI has kept cameras same as last week’s smartphone at 60MP rear shooter with 6K video recording and Triple Lens/T1.2 along with 20MP dual front shooters. The Turing Monolith Chaconne has a bigger 120Wh battery with triple power sources: 3000mAh Graphene Supercapacitor battery, 2400mAh Li-on battery, and Hydrogen fuel cell.
On the software front, it will be running the same Swordfish OS based on Sailfish OS but with deep learning (artificial intelligence). It is said to run Convolutional Neural Network (CNN), Natural Language Processing (NLP), Long Short-Term Memory Network (LSTM), and differential privacy. This device is said to get official in 2018 which is one year later than the smartphone.
While all of this does sound insane and way beyond anyone’s wildest dreams, TRI’s newsletter starts with a famous Steve Jobs’ quote:
“Here’s to the insane, the crazy ones, the misfits, the fools, the rebels, the troublemakers and the ones who see things differently. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them, but the only thing you can’t do is ignore them because they alter things. They lead us down a new path – and while some may see them as insane, we see brilliance – because the ones who are crazy enough to think they can alter the world, are the ones who do.”
Even though the quote is inspiring and would definitely suit TRI if it becomes successful, I am still quite skeptical about the existence of both the devices. But like any other tech enthusiast, I have my fingers crossed and eyes set on TRI.
