    The 5.5-inch smartphone is meant to be completely unhackable. End-to-end encryption is built into most of the core apps on the phone. The phone is activated through a fingerprint reader on the side of the device, and is made to keep servers and third parties out of your business as much as possible, 'Wired.com' reported.

    The device, developed by Turing Robotic Industries based in San Francisco, California and Shenzhen, China, is made of a material called liquidmorphium. Liquidmorphium is stronger than steel or aluminum, and can protect the phone from shock and screen breakage.

    Apple is already using it in small quantities in the iPhone 6. The Turing phone is also extraordinarily waterproof, thanks to a nano-coating on the internals.

    The case is not sealed off so water will actually get inside. But due to the nano-coating, users can simply dry off the handset and get back to business.

    Turing Robotic Industries CEO Steve Chao said the focus is on three features: privacy keys, liquid metal, nano-coating. "These features are like the GPS, Wi-Fi, and camera of the early days of smartphones.

    People were like, 'Why do I need that?' But then they were standardised. In the future, if you don't have liquid metal, nano-coating, and a privacy key, you'll be phased out right away," Chao said.
