Turing Cadenza Phone: A Futuristic Device But Broken Promise

Cadenza phone was one of the last smartphones designed we saw from Turing Robotic Industries. What is this phone like? What's special about it?

There are a lot of phone makers around the world, some of which are very popular like Apple, Samsung, Huawei, and Xiaomi. Meanwhile, there are companies that are release fewer phones and are known by a much smaller population. Today, we would like to introduce to you a company called Turing Space Industries and its phone brand Turing. In addition, we will also discuss its most recent launch, the Cadenza phone.

Turing Space Industry, also known as Turing Robotic Industries Corporation (TRI), is a mobile tech company that develops technologies by relying on decentralized authentication methodology and using static key exchange with an anonymous key distribution infrastructure. The company was founded in 2015, based in the US.

Turing announced the Cadenza phone in September 2016, which is powered by two Snapdragon 830s chips. Turing Phone Cadenza release date was in 2017 when it started being shipped to buyers. At the time of its launch, the Turing Phone Cadenza price was Rs 61,990 in India.

The handset features two 6GB RAM modules, resulting in a total of 12GB of RAM, along with dual 256GB internal memory chips and 1TB of additional storage. It also comes with a dedicated microSD card slot supporting up to 500 GB.

The Turing Phone Cadenza has the VoiceOn technology that turns the device on and off with your voice commands. The phone also supports biometric authentication through voice recognition.

Apart from these, the phone comes with a 5.8-inch display with a resolution of 2560x1440 pixels. It runs on the Swordfish operating system with deep learning features. In terms of the camera, there is a triple-camera module on the back, featuring a 60MP main lens. On the front, there are two 20MP cameras for selfies. Last but not least, the smartphone houses a 100Wh battery.

Unfortunately, we weren’t able to find any Turing phone reviews for this device.

Founded by a former Nokia employee, Turing wasn’t a successful phone maker despite the support it obtained from Chinese investors. The 2015-2018 period witnessed its constant struggles in shipping products as it couldn’t deliver the actual values that it promised.

After the Cadenza, the company went on to develop the next phone called the Turing HubblePhone. In 2018, major tech news outlets like Digitaltrends reported that Turing Robotics, even after filing for bankruptcy, planned to release a new smartphone with three displays and a hefty price, scheduled for launching in 2020. As we all know, nothing came out last year.

The special thing about this design is something called a multi-dimensional screen. Basically, it’s the main display with a secondary one that could fold up like a flip phone or open outwards at any angle. The design also features multiple cameras, including a big one at the top of the phone, a notch-based camera on the pop-out screen that could be used for facial recognition, and selfies. According to the company at the time, the smartphone could make a call as users mouthed the name of a contact.

The dual-screen design was meant to enable seamless multi-tasking. Steve Chao, the Chief Executive Officer of Turing, wrote in an email that 2020 would see a larger trend of multi-tasking among mobile users.

“Suppose I’m in the middle of editing a mobile email and a call came in. I can simply flip the phone to the rear side of the screen without having to float the caller window. In a laptop mode I can continue to speak on the phone, perhaps via a Bluetooth headset, while continue to edit my email on screen B of upper deck and have my game continuously on main screen of main deck.”

As revealed by Turing, the HubblePhone would come with a 4K screen and two Full HD screens. It would also house a 3,300mAh battery and a 2,800mAhb battery placed on different screens.

The phone was said to sport a total of four cameras, including a 60MP lens and triple 12MP lenses installed in different parts of the handset. Powering the phone would be two Snapdragon 855 chipsets.

Other phones from Turing

After some research, we found other Turing phone models from the previous years, but they were all discontinued. It’s interesting that all of Turing’s designs are somewhat futuristic.

The first one is Turing Monolith Chaconne, which sported a 6.4-inch display with a pixel density of 688 ppi. The phone was powered by the Snapdragon 830 processor, featuring 18GB of RAM. It had a 60MP rear camera along with dual 20MP front cameras.

Another phone was the Turing Dark Wyvern that came with a 5.5-inch screen and a pixel density of 401 ppi. The handset was powered by the Snapdragon 801 chipset. It features 3GB RAM, a 13MP main camera, and an 8MP front-facing camera. Last but not least, it houses a 3,000mAh battery.

The next model Turing developed was the Knight Icefyre, which featured a 5.5-inch display, the Snapdragon 801 processor, and 3GB of RAM. It also came with a 13MP primary lens, an 8MP front lens, and a 3,000mAh battery.

The Turing Pharaoh is the last phone on the list, which had a 5.5-inch Full HD screen with a pixel density of 401 ppi. The device was powered by the Snapdragon 801 chipset, featuring 3GB RAM and a 3,000mAh battery.
