Engineers have developed a unique smartphone that is unhackable and built from a special metal.
The smartphone’s end-to-end encryption is built into most of the core apps on the phone.
Users can unlock the phone, developed by San Francisco-based Turing Robotic Industries, via a fingerprint reader on the side of the device, wired.com reported. The 5.5-inch phone has no USB port and no headphone jack.
It is made of a material called liquidmorphium that is stronger than steel or aluminium and apparently the next big thing in phones.
Apple is already using the material in small quantities in its iPhone 6 models. The phone is also extraordinarily waterproof owing to a nano-coating on the internals. No rubber is used and everything is accessible and open.
According to Syl Chao, CEO of Turing Robotic Industries, the phone will be available for pre-order starting July 31, beginning at $ 610 for a 16GB model.
