The Turing Phone Cadenza specs are too ridiculous to believe
posted by Michael H. / Sep 01, 2016, 8:26 PM
The claim is that in 2017, TRI will release a device called the Turing Phone Cadenza that has specs that are too insane to be believed. The Cadenza is said to be powered by two (yes two) Snapdragon 830 SoCs. The 830 is planned for release in early 2017, but why a phone would need two of them is hard to imagine. Maybe it's because the Cadenza is also supposed to ship with 12GB of RAM and the Snapdragon 830 only supports up to 8GB of RAM, so you would need two in order to make use of 12GB of RAM.
The Cadenza is said to have dual 20-megapixel front cameras and a 60-megapixel "iMAX 6K Quad Rear Camera, Triplet Lens/T1.2" which makes no sense unless you assume that's a typo and it actually should be an F1.2 aperture lens. Of course, that only helps it make sense in terms of using real terminology. Obviously, a camera that captures 60MP photos or 6K video would need a lot of storage so the device has 1-terabyte of storage and two microSD card slots.
For connectivity, you'll get four nanoSIM slots (because why not) and WiGig. And, obviously powering a device like this will take a lot of juice, so the Cadenza will have maybe the least believable thing on the whole spec sheet, which is 100wh from three power sources: a 2400mAh graphene superconductor battery, a 1600mAh lithium ion battery, and a hydrogen fuel cell.
And, just in case all of that isn't crazy enough, there's also the Swordfish OS (supposedly a variant of Sailfish) capable of deep learning, running a neural network, natural language processing, and using differential privacy. It's honestly like someone at TRI just put together a spreadsheet of buzz words and the silliest collection of specs and justified it by saying "It is our belief that we can disrupt the status quo by bringing the Turing Phone Cadenza from the future to the present."

is it a leak for nextyear's april fools? and since its turing, we can expect late deliveries, and a few sudden changes in those specs

It wasn't a leak, it was in an official email from Turing themselves. I received one. They said in the email they are opening a new R&D lab that will produce products that will change the world and this is their first product they have eyes on (they mentioned AI and virtual reality in the email as well as things to expect from this "lab").

Phonearena is getting fooled with false information

This will happen as soon as Half-Life 3 hits all platforms XD.

T1.2 is not a mistake PA. It's a real term used when buying cinema grade lenses. In this case it would be insane. I don't think this is for real but if it it....well if is than I think I know where 3000 dollars of my money is going.

Unlike Turing at least Vertu offers a phone with performance, and well existing at all even...

What? Vertu phones are specced like a 2012 android midranger. The only thing Vertu has to differentiate are the services offered, and the materials used. Both Vertu and Turing phones are ridiculous though

Specs are obviously unrealistic. However, the main point is the fact that how PA actually hired someone who doesn't know about T-stop vs F-stop and wouldn't even spend a minute to google it. As a tech site, it is really unacceptable
