April Fools’ Day has long passed, but it seems that for Turing Robotic Industries, every email newsletter on their upcoming Turing Phone Cadenza is a veritable April 1st. Android Police reports that the CEO of Turing Robotic Industries, Steve Chao, announced the Turing Phone Cadenza as part of “The Outer Blueprint”, a “program to integrate artificial intelligence into smartphones.” Wowza.
While the notion of self-learning AI in smartphones is not new and is most likely to be an eventuality in the years to come, the Turing Phone Cadenza claims to launch next year with “Deep Learning AI” technology. What exactly that is, is anyone’s guess. But that’s not all folks. Touted by Turing as a “perfectly designed device”, the Phone Cadenza has plenty more out-of-this-world specs and features. Have a look see.

Even Android Police has doubts on the authenticity of Turing’s newsletter: “We’ll admit it—we thought this was a prank or parody when we first received this as part of Turing’s mailing list since none of their social media pages discuss anything like this, but everything points to this being legitimately from Turing. If this was faked, then it was very well-executed.”
The Turing Phone Cadenza is “expected to release in 2017.” So, yeah. MIND = BLOWN.
