Turing announces Monolith Chaconne with 3 Snapdragon 830s, 4K display, 18GB of RAM, and much more
Turing Robotics Industries (TRI) with some more craziness after introducing the Turing Phone Cadenza last week. The company has just announced the Turing Monolith Chaconne, a smartphone with specs even stranger than its name, through an email newsletter.
The above announcement by TRI come two months after the firm finally managed to ship the pilot Turing Phone, a crowdfunded Android handset, to early backers, after much delay and some revisions.
Coming to Turing Monolith Chaconne, let’s have a look at its specifications at a glance:
• 6.4-inch 4K display with 2160×3840 pixel resolution
• 3 Qualcomm Snapdragon 830 processors
• 18GB of LPDDR4X RAM (or 3 x 6GB memory chips)
• 1.2TB of storage (3 x 256GB memory, 512GB via microSD card)
• 60MP quad rear camera with Triplet Lens/T1.2 and iMAX 6K
• 20MP dual front camera
• Swordfish OS with deep learning (AI) features based on Sailfish OSS
• 120 Wh battery based on 3,600mAh Graphene Super-capacitor + 2,400mAh Li-Ion + Hydrogen Fuel Cell wordfish Sailfish OS
• WiGig support, Marshall audio, A.L.A.N
• Advanced AI Voice-Authenticated Power On/Off
• Four Nano-SIM support
• Graphene Oxide composite bodywork with Liquid Metal 2.0 Structural Frame, Lightweight Metal Outer Frame, High Temperature Alloy Components
• 4G + VoLTE, 3G, GSM
• Augmented Reality: Parallel Tracking & Mapping API
Steve Chao, CEO of TRI, in an email newsletter explains how it is going to connect the three Snapdragon 830 SoCs in the smartphone:
“TRI plans on connecting multiple CPUs via WiGig by implementing an ad-hoc driver to the 60GHz channel via on-board USB3.0. This complicated computing process stores a transient matrix in SSD of CPU(1), then it recomputes and shares the transient matrix with the other SSD of CPU(2) simultaneously. This results in the CPUs sharing their computing power in parallel. Such proprietary technology enables TRI to achieve never-seen-before computing power on a mobile device. So what exactly is this technology intended for? The answer is – Computational Intelligence (CI).”
The Turing Monolith Chaconne is expected to release in 2018. Whether or not will the company be able to launch this device next year and keep its promise, only time will tell. TRI also says that it will make its presence felt in Salo, Finland and start building prototypes for the Turing Phone Cadenza in a manufacturing facility right where Nokia and Microsoft used to produce their mobile phone prototypes.
