There are high-end smartphones — such as the iPhone X — and then there are really high-end smartphones like this next device we’re going to talk about, called the Turing HubblePhone.
Inspired by computer scientist Alan Turing, Turing Space Industries — formerly named Turing Robotic Industries — is purportedly a “pioneer” in machine intelligence, advanced vision systems and blockchain technologies.
It turns out, they also took some time out of their busy schedule to design and assemble one of the most powerful smartphones known to man. The Turing HubblePhone sports an incredibly unique clamshell form factor which flips open like old school cell phones — only each side is a separate phone altogether. Wait, what?
What is the Turing HubblePhone?
As you can see, the Turing HubblePhone has two “decks,” one upper and the other lower.
It sure looks innovative, but the specs are something of a fantastical nature too. An awe-inspiring 11.81-inch 4K continuous display runs from front to back, curving over a hinge with a near bezel-less design. The rear camera is a ridiculous 60-megapixel sensor with 15x optical zoom for closeup shots.
Each layer is referred to as a “deck,” so you have one upper deck and another lower, main deck. When closed, there are two HD screens, one on the front and one on the back, at over five inches each. Embedded within are three 12-megapixel cameras.
It’s all powered by a Snapdragon 855 processor, 8GB of RAM and 256GB of storage per deck — so 512GB of storage total. Each deck will also have its own battery, at 2,800 mAh for the upper and 3,300 mAh for the lower. Both decks will have their own dedicated processors and GPUs for additional performance.
You’re essentially getting two phones for the price of, well, almost $2,800.
Considering the design, it’s basically two separate smartphones crammed into one body.
If you want the HubblePhone you’re going to be waiting a while, however. Turing won’t be selling them until sometime in June 2020. One reason for this is because the HubblePhone will ship with not just next-gen Wi-Fi support but 5G functionality as well, which has yet to see a widespread rollout in the wireless sector.
Oh, and want to know the price? It’s $2,749 to pre-order one of these bad boys.
