Turing Phone Appassionato
This premium handset is scheduled to hit the market in September starting at $1,099 USD. It is made using durable Liquidmorphium material and will come with an AI assistant known as Amplified Intelligence.

Turing Robotic Industries has just teamed up with hardware maker TCL that, in addition to its own handsets that usually can be found on Chinese wholesale websites, is currently making BlackBerry and Alcatel devices as well. Now, the upcoming Turing smartphone that will be made by this manufacturer is ready to bring Liquidmorphium to the masses.

The upcoming Turing Appassionato is a luxury handset that uses durable Liquidmorphium material and a diamond-like-carbon coating, offering a ceramic feel. The detailed specs are not public yet, but we know of the Qualcomm MSM8996SG-AC processor, Android 7.1.1 Nougat, Amplified Intelligence virtual assistant, as well as an enhanced-concierge service.

Turing Appassionato is expected to hit the market in September, and it does not come cheap - the elite edition Turing Phone Appassionato PX8 has a price tag of $1,099 USD, while the premium-luxury edition Turing Phone Appassionato GX8 is even more expensive, being priced at $1,599 USD.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
