However, Turing Robotic Industries has now sent an email announcing that it needs some more time and that the shipping date has now been delayed.

The smartphone is called ‘unhackable, unbreakable, and waterproof’ as it features end-to-end encryption built into most of the core apps on the phone.

The phone is also extraordinarily waterproof owing to a nano-coating on the internals. No rubber is used and everything is accessible and open.
