Known for making the ultra-secure and ultra-strong Turing Phone, Turing Robotics is back at it again, but this time the firm is swinging way beyond the fences and into the freeway with the Turing Monolith Chaconne.
In order to prepare you for the insanity you are about to discover, the most “boring” aspect about the Monolith Chaconne is its 6.4-inch, 4K display, giving the display a ridiculous pixel density of 688ppi. In other words, do not even try to spot pixels using your eyeballs, since you will not find any.
The craziness continues with the 20-megapixel dual front-facing camera and 60MP quad rear-facing sensor, with the phablet featuring a slide-out keyboard. The keyboard certainly helps the Monolith Chaconne look like something spit out from the future, but Turing did not make it clear what its intentions are by including such a feature.
The fun continues under the hood, where you will find the three Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 chipsets and 18GB of RAM that make up the beating heart of the phablet. Why you might need so much power is beyond us, and Turing did not say what kind of science is required to have the unannounced processor work with two copies of itself. 768GB of native storage will be at your disposal, though you can add up to two 256GB Micro SD card slots, giving the phablet a maximum potential storage of 1.2TB.
Other interesting tidbits include four Nano SIM card slots, augmented reality with parallel tracking and mapping, and something called “A.L.A.N.,” which Turing was extremely vague about. The company did say it will reveal more details about the acronym sometime soon, though, so there is that. Finally, similar to the Turing Phone, the Monolith Chaconne will run Jolla’s Sailfish OS.
As of this writing, however, the Monolith Chaconne is more of a proof of concept than something in actual, marketable existence. Turing does promise a 2018 launch, though given the Turing Phone’s numerous delays, you might need to wait longer to get your hands on the phablet. Speaking of which, Turing is accepting applications to work at its Finland research and development facility, which is where the Monolith Chaconne will be made.
