Turing and TCL team up for the Appassionato smartphone
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.
