The Crypto Pre-Order Campaign of the Turing HubblePhone K3-XR next-gen handset will start on December 13
The upcoming Turing HubblePhone K3-XR has finally three clearly defined models — each one sporting really impressive specs, maybe too impressive to be true — as well as rather accurate launch dates. Obviously, this doesn't mean that the three upcoming Turing HubblePhone K3-XR models — namely Copernicus, Cassini, and Herschel — will hit the market as expected. First, they should get enough backers, and this is only one of the smaller challenges that are laying ahead.
Since all HubblePhone K3-XR models are supposed to use the barely announced Qualcomm Snapdragon 855 processor, the December 2019 launch date for the most affordable model could be pushed into 2020 if anything goes wrong with this chip's launch or availability. Without further ado, these are the highlights of the HubblePhone K3-XR:
- Copernicus: single processor, 8 GB RAM, 256 GB storage
- Cassini: two processors, 8 GB + 8 GB RAM, 256 GB + 256 GB storage
- Herschel: three processors, 10 GB + 10 GB + 10 GB RAM, 512 GB + 512 GB + 512 GB storage
In addition to the handsets mentioned above, Turing Space Industries is also throwing in a special bundle package for each pre-order. These packages include a set of headphones (HubblePods), a HubblePower external battery (12,000 mAh, 16,000 mAh, or 20,000 mAh, depending on the model), HubbleLens (most likely some camera lens add-on), and a HubblePouch (the name should say it all).
The interesting part about the pre-order campaign is that TSI has created a crypto token named HubbleCard Token and "each outstanding HUBB will have an equivalent USDT reserved in TSI's crypto off-line wallet for a quarterly audit by a trustworthy independent 3rd party entity." In just a few words, the current pre-order value for the three aforementioned HubblePhone K3-XR models is 1,850 USD, 2,750 USD, and 4,250 USD.
Does this all seem too ambitious to you? Will the HubblePhone K3-XR turn into another piece of vaporware? Are you adventurous enough to place your pre-order? Let us know what you think in the comments section.
