A few days ago, we told you about a phone made by Turing that featured absolutely insane specifications no human has basically ever heard of inside a smartphone. Called the Cadenza, the phone featured two Snapdragon 830s, 12GB of RAM, 512GB of on-board storage, a 60MP camera, and more. And just when you think there’s no way you could top this sucker, Turing today unveiled another smartphone with even crazier specs.
This model’s called the Monolith Chacoone, and it’s essentially the Cadenza ‘S’. What makes this phone better than the latter is the fact that it includes three Snapdragon 830s, a 6.4-inch 4K display, 18GB of RAM, a 120W battery over the 20W battery in the Cadenza, and 768GB of on-board storage which is expandable via two microSD card slots for an additional 512GB of storage, potentially granting a user with a whopping 1.2TB of space. What makes this phone similar to the Cadenza is the fact that it features the same 60MP and 20MP rear and front cameras, the same Swordfish OS, and the same Graphene Oxide build materials. See what I mean by the Cadenza ‘S’?
Turing says that the Monolith Chacoone is “a device that falls in between the mobile phone and tablet categories.” So really, they’re just saying it’s a phablet. But with its design and functionality, it may actually be more accurate to say this thing’s like a mini PC.
A slide out keyboard is also present on this crazy smartphone, however I don’t know if this is such a good idea or not as the device appears to be pretty thick already. Nonetheless, it’ll probably work out in the end and incorporate itself with the experience pretty well. But it better, because the handset’s bound to cost a nice, hefty chunk of change.
Augmented reality with parallel tracking and mapping and something called A.L.A.N will also launch on the Monolith Chacoone, but it’s unclear just what these utilities will do. We’ll, of course, let you know when more information is provided, but for now we’re just looking at a giant phone with an insane spec sheet that gives the impression of something entirely made up.
2018 is when Turing plans to launch the Monolith Chacoone, while a specific time or price hasn’t been unveiled yet. If any new information emerges, we’ll update this article.
