If you are sick of spending extra money on screen protectors and cases to keep your precious smartphone protected, you may want to give this new device from Turing Robotic Industries a look in.
The Turing Phone sports a chassis that is built from "liquidmorphium", which we think is just above unobtainium on our made-up periodic table. Kidding! It's a mix of zirconium, copper, aluminium, nickel and silver.
This metal alloy is claimed by the smartphone maker to be tougher than steel or titanium. There is also the less-exotic ceramic, aluminium and plastic around the body. The handset also boasts a fingerprint reader and a magnetic charging system, much like what is found on most Apple laptops.
The phone also has security in mind with server-free encrypted communication between owners.
Possibly what lets down the phone is what is inside. The processor is a Snapdragon 801 CPU from last year, but does have 3GB of memory and a 5.5-inch, 1080p screen.
There is also up to 128GB of internal storage, an 8MP front-mounted camera and 13MP rear shooter. The phone supports Euro and American LTE 4G.
The phone will be available from 10 August and will retail from $740 (£485) for the 64GB unlocked version and $870 (£575) for the 128GB version. There are no details on which carriers (if any) the phone will be available on.
