TRI signs $1 billion deal for the distribution of the new Turing Phone Appassionato

Turing Robotic Industries (TRI) introduced its new version of the Turing Phone, supposedly world's first Liquidmorphium smartphone, last month. The company confirmed it has signed a deal with TCL for the manufacture of the new Turing Phone Appassionato, which will come in two variations.

Today, TRI announced a $1 billion deal for the distribution of 750,000 Turing Phone Appassionato GX8 (premium version) units throughout China over 12 months.

The partnership with Potevio, a China state-owned telecommunications distribution company will ensure the distribution of phones throughout the country beginning this fall. Moreover, the agreement will allow both companies to create Turing Phone flagship retail stores in Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou, the three largest cities in China.

The premium version of Turing Phone Appassionato comes with 8GB of RAM and 128GB of storage on board and features a Samsung AMOLED 5.5” display with Quad HD resolution.

Hardware-wise, the smartphone is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 821 processor, but photographers will be pleased to know that TRI added a Sony IMX378 camera.

Another major differentiator is the Liquidmorphium body of the phone, an amorphous alloy that is more durable than steel and titanium and has a diamond-like-carbon coating (DLC), which provides a high-tech ceramic feel and a scratch resistant surface.

TRI's smartphone will ship with Android 7.0 Nougat and the latest technology in amplified intelligence (AI), including the company's human enhanced concierge service and digital assistant, named Sir ALAN.

Chinese company Potevio will distribute the Turing Phone Appassionato GX8 at $1,599 via its more than 20,000 retail outlets throughout China.

Remember to take the information lightly due to TRI's record of failures and broken promises. Although a $1 billion deal might seem impossible to achieve for a company like TRI, we believe no payments will be made until after the Turing Phone Appassionato starts selling in China (750,000 phones x $1,599 = $1.2 billion).

I don't believe them.. They announced many, many products. Cadenza phone was the biggest joke ever. I guess they are very big scammers with those vaporware products, just like Saygus! How did they get this $1 billion?? ROFL

I'm not certain any of you know anything about phone manufacturing and what it takes to accomplish an agreement like this. I am quite satisfied with my Turing Phone I received and the company has provided several updates and I travel the world with my device. Now that the company has signed an agreement with TCL one of the worlds most foremost manufacturers who purchased Blackberry and now Potavio one of the largest distributors in China...the company is not only positioned well... but have the capabilities of Apple or Samsung... TRI is a sleeping giant on the verge of a great awakening.

Guys, Here is what so-called Turing Robotics CEO Mr. Syl Chao sets up a new account and wants to tell you that his so-called company is a legit one, and not a scam or joke as you think. BRAVOOO!!

"....purchased BlackBerry....." Wait, what? TCL didn't "purchase BlackBerry". TCL LICENSED the rights/IP to build BlackBerry branded smartphones FOR BlackBerry, and BlackBerry supplies the software and security for said branded smartphones.

What phone do you have? I really like the idea of the Sailfish OS. I think the Dark Wyrne is the best one they've come out with yet but I have read about battery overheating and usability/connection issues. Did they solve these through updates? I hope it becomes a viable company. It's an industry that needs more viable competition

Wherever you go, whether its downloadable content or diamond-like carbon, DLC will always stand for a load of BS promises.

And you think people who love the former king and established of smartphone world don't know about phones?? LOL! By the way, your so-called company is supposed to be a Finnish company that operates in the same city where Nokia based in! So, both should be in the same league. You even don't know how to shoot backlash LOL, pathetic.

In this day and age, 4,500+ mAh should be a staple.
