I guess you have already heard about almighty Hubble Phone that was announced in 2018 July 18th. If not, here’s some precious details about upcoming king of smartphones. Maybe the most powerful smartphone ever made in the whole universe. Let’s start the exploration…
What is this Hubble Phone?
Hubble Phone is a smartphone that is named after the world famous Hubble Telescope that was launched in 1990 and is still operational (the telescope is named after astronomer Edwin Hubble). It is manufactured by Turing Space Industries (TSI) and we can see it in the shops by the beginning of the 2020 June (US), August (UK) and December (rest of the world). The Hubble Phone is actually not a smartphone; it is a combination of two smartphones. It has three screens and unbelievable performance inside it. If Apple, Samsung or Google haven’t any plans to release a super-tech smartphone in 2020 this Hubble Phone will rule the mobile phone market uncontested (I can’t foresee the future but I can guess it – also the phone is priced for wallet shrinking $2749 / £2115 (prices may change with the time)).
Note: The Hubble Phone will not be completely manufactured by Turing Space Industries (TSI). Turing has partnered with several smartphone manufactures to make this phone real, especially with Foxconn.
What can this Hubble Phone do?
Hubble Phone can do almost anything you want. The attractive feature is it will support advanced voice commanding and super high speed 5G technology (upto 1.2Gbps of speed). It will not just obey your voice; it will read your lips using a lip reading technology. If you want to call someone, you just have to say his/her name to the Hubble Phone, the phone will do the rest.
“The most natural way to control a device with is our voice. In noisy environments, HubblePhone utilizes lip reading technology, revolutionizing how we interact with mobile devices.”
– Steve Chen (CEO – Turing Space Industries)
There is a new messaging app called that uses Artificial Reality (AfR) that allows the Hubble Phone user to send a 3D structured message that will be projected into the receiver’s physical surroundings. The phone user can also scan the real world and make 3D stickers to send as messages.
The next most special thing is the displays. Turing has decided to make a phone with multiple display because they are thinking that the people will be very busy with multi-tasking on their phones (they are right actually). For enhanced multi-tasking in 2020, this Hubble Phone has multi touch AMOLED capacitive screen with 16M colors.
I almost forgot to tell that the Hubble Phone can be divided into two parts; not physically but literally. Those two parts are Main deck and Upper deck. In Main deck there is a single 4K display on both sides (It may look like two screens, but it is a single screen that covers both sides). The other displays are in Upper deck and both of them are Full HD not 4K. For powering up all these displays both Main and Upper decks have different batteries and different Operating System. The Main Deck is powered by a 3300mAh battery while the Upper Deck uses 2800mAh battery (non-removable).
Since the phone’s name is Hubble, it has a main camera of 60 Mega Pixels that can be zoomed upto x15 times. Also there are three 12 Mega Pixel cameras for additional use.
If we look at the chipset for a moment, Turing is using a Qualcomm SDM855 (yet to introduce) chipset with a Octa-core (8 x 2.96 GHz Kryo 385) processor for both Main Deck and Upper Deck. Hubble Phone has two Adreno 630 GPUs on both decks for maximum gaming experience in AR (augmented reality), VR (virtual reality) and finally MR (mixed reality) (I really don’t know about what the MR is). The operating systems that used in this phone is pretty weird. In the Main Deck they used both Turing Keplerian OS (as the base) and Android 9.0 (Android P) to operate it. When it comes to the Upper Deck they again use Turing Keplerian OS with Android P and Sailfish 3 for the console mode. Using multiple Operating Systems is awesome but is it really possible? Turing will answer in 2020.
The phone will support 4 SIM cards (Two on each decks) and the body of the Hubble Phone will be made from Titanium Aluminide. It is completely Chrome Silver colored and IP68 certified for being dustproof and waterproof for 150cm (for 30mins). The Random Access Memory (RAM) in both main and upper decks will be two of 8GBs and each decks will have two of 256GB storage.
Let’s see a little comparison between Samsung Galaxy Note 9 and Hubble Phone (it is not justifiable because there is a two-year time gap between these two phones but you can take a good idea at the Hubble Phone’s mightiness)
