After a phone with 12GB RAM Turing announces another with 18GB of RAM, 3X SD 830s, 4K display, and everything more than Candeza

Turing continues to announce its concept phones with specs that are unbelievable even on paper. Remember the last one? Turing Phone Candeza? It seemed like an elaborate prank with the specs Turing said it would have. But Turing seems serious, and this time they have taken it a step… actually, 6GB further and more.


The latest announcement for the Turing Monolith Chaconne, TRI gives a glimpse into its R&D lab as well. And again, TRI is pushing the idea of artificial intelligence, although to hear them explain it, you might think they are going to put Skynet in your pocket. This imaginative next generation phone is not only the successor to the yet to launch Cadenza, it is even more far-fetched.

Steve Chao, CEO of TRI, starts the newsletter off with an inspirational Steve Jobs quote. Chao goes on to (attempt to) explain how the dual Snapdragon 830s in the Cadenza will operate.

“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).”

TRI says that all of this will create a “device that falls in between the mobile phone and tablet categories” because apparently they don’t realize that tablets generally have the same processing power as phones, what with using the same hardware.
Just in case all of that wasn’t enough, TRI also claims the Monolith will feature something called A.L.A.N, and teases it as being the next thing to be revealed. Obviously the name is a reference to Alan Turing, and giving something a name like that would imply some sort of AI assistant if we were still in the real world. But, we’re in TRI’s world now, so there’s no limit to what A.L.A.N. could be.
Turing has also kept similar on the OS, with the phone running Swordfish OS, which  is based on the Sailfish OS. Oh, and you still get a Graphene Oxide Composite frame with a Liquid metal structure.

TRI also mentions that R&D for these hypothetical phones is being done in Salo, Finland, a place where manufacturers such as Nokia and Microsoft used to develop phones. Turing released the specs of the Monolith Chaconne – its latest concept phone will come with 6.4 inch display with 4K resolution – 3840 x 2160 pixels, resulting in a pixel density of ~688 PPI.


The RAM is increased by 50% – from 12 GB in the Cadenza, you get 18 GB in the Chaconne, in a three, 6GB module arrangement. The phone will also come with 1.2 TB storage – 3 x 256 GB SSDs and the rest filled with 2 microSD cards up to 256 GB each. If that hasn’t shocked you a little already, you also get a 60 MP camera on the back with support for recording up to 6K iMax resolution. On the front, you get a dual camera with up to 20 MP resolution.


Sure, Turing had a great specification idea for a phone, and they laid it out with the Cadenza. And sure, a lot of people actually found hope in a revolutionary new battery solution offered by the triple battery system. But, they might have overstretched their expectation muscle here, and we all know what happens when you overstretch. It is sounding more like hokum now. Don’t expect the Monolith Chaconne anytime before 2018.  In addition, if you’d like to add a little crazy to your life, TRI is accepting applications to work at its Finland R&D facility at
