TRI’s high security Turing Phone, the one that went up for reservation not too long ago, will begin to ship out to those who place their order starting December 18, just in time to receive it for Christmas.
The official timeline states that invites will be ready for those who reserved a device on September 21, followed by a pre-order for the Dark Wyvern special edition on September 24. On that same day, all folks who reserved a device will be asked to pay for their phone. For those curious, the Turning Phone started at $610 and went all the way up to $870. For the limited edition Wyvern model, you are looking at a price of $999 to $1299 (Glaedr model).
The Turing Phone deploys end-to-end decentralized authentication for establishing secure networks to exchange data. It also features a IPx8 waterproof rating, too? For internals, the device features a Snapdragon 801 processor, 3GB of RAM, NFC, LTE connectivity, 5.5″ FHD display, 13MP rear-facing camera, 8MP front-facing camera, 3,000 mAh battery, 3 different storage options (16/64/128GB), and runs Android 5.1 with a “Æmæth UI” skin.
Anyone here reserve their very own Turing Phone?

Dark Wyvern News
The TRI community asked us to create a special Turing Phone, one that could serve as the symbol for the cipher phone. From this feedback, we worked to design a phone with mystique and intrigue. The Dark Wyvern is that phone.
Wyverns are careful to be silent when flying and keep their shadows unseen. These traits give the Wyvern the ability to be stealth so its foes are unaware of the creature. We thought it fitting to name our flagship phone after the mythical creature so often associated with heraldry. We hope you’ll carry your Dark Wyvern as a badge of distinction and honor.
