Tesla Pi Phone release date and rumours: Everything we know so far | The Sun

ELON Musk has made his mark on the world with Tesla and SpaceX.

But is the businessman and billionaire making his mark in the world with a new phone? Here's what we know so far about the Tesla PI Phone.

Is Tesla making a PI phone?

According to Lifewire, the PI phone is, so far, only speculation.

Elon has fleeting mentioned about possibly introducing a phone.

Liz Wheeler tweeted Musk asking if he would consider creating his own phone if Twitter was booted from iPhone's and Androids.

He responded with:

"I certainly hope it does not come to that, but, yes, if there is no other choice, I will make an alternative phone".

Most of the phone's come from an early 2021 YouTube video published by ADR Studio Design.

However, the video also specifies these are the designers ideas and are not real details from Tesla.

It's also safe to say that the rumoured ideas for the phone are too advanced to be realistic currently.

Here is a list of the rumoured features:

  • Neuralink support.

Neuralink is a company owned by Musk that is developing implantable brain-computer interfaces BCIs. It would mean you and the phone are directly connected to each other.

  • Satellite internet.

iPhones feature 5G but Musk has SpaceX's space-based internet service Starlink.

  • Solar charging

Tesla manufacture solar panels and vehicles so the idea isn't too unrealistic.

It's possible the phone would only rely on solar charging.

  • Vehicle control

Tesla already has an app for some of the car's basic functions.

This could include unlocking and locking the car, media playback and summoning the vehicle.

  • Astrophotography

Current phones use AI and powerful cameras to capture our night sky.

Add in SpaceX and it's possible Musk's phone would be able to capture some incredible photos.

  • Crypto mining

It's possible the phone will mine cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin may be a possibility to mine though Musk presumably prefers Dogecoin.

It's also rumoured Tesla's phone would mine a new currency MarsCoin.

How much will a Tesla PI phone cost?

If Musk does develop a phone with Neuralink features then it's likely it would cost a few thousand pounds.

It's possible Musk would develop other models of the phone which may cost less.

It's also possible as more people use the Neuralink technology it will mean that phone's come down in price.

If the phone is real Lifewire predicted a phone with relatively basic features would cost between $800-$1,200 (£610.38-£915.58).

When will Tesla's PI phone be released?

It is unconfirmed that Tesla is even creating the PI phone.

However, Musk would probably announce the phone, likely through Twitter, a few months before release.

This would allow customers to pre-order the phone.
