Today, smartphones have become more of a necessity than a luxury.
You will hardly find someone who does not own one. Based on their specifications and features, they are available with different price tags. In other words, you will find a handset to suit almost any budget. This article presents you with a list of some of the world’s costliest devices that you may even not have known to exist. Interestingly, some of these smartphones are available as basic variants as well with affordable prices. In most cases, the expensive handsets are truly very pricey that you will in most probability not be able to lay your hands on them.
HTC One M7 Gold Edition
All of us are aware of the HTC One M7 from HTC. But, how many of us know that the company released a special variant of this metal device that opts for gold as its body material. Undoubtedly, this gold edition is the most expensive smartphone from the manufacturer. While there were a large number of the standard version in the market, only five made in gold handsets were designed by HTC.
At first sight, the Black Diamond may not impress you with its just ordinary looks. But, if you examine the device carefully, you will find it studded with two diamonds! There is a big diamond on the rear while the front houses a smaller one. And if this is not enough, the smartphone is sure to impress you with a fancy unbreakable mirror that is integrated into it.
Unfortunately, the Constellation handset does not have anything to boast in the looks department. With five colors to take your pick from, the device chooses to use calf leather for its body material. Sized with a 4.3-inch screen, this size is also smaller than what you would normally look forward to. But it has an excellent pixel density of 342ppi for a small size screen. The highlight is that the screen is protected by a 5.1-inch sapphire crystal. According to Vertu, this protects the screen from all scratches with the exception of a diamond.
Tonino Lamborghini Antares
If you thought Lamborghini was only into manufacturing luxury cars, it is time for you to put your thinking cap again. The company dabbles in manufacturing smartphones that as expected are just as expensive. This smartphone looks stunning and has a number of leather cases that you can buy to protect your handset. However, do bear in mind that the leather case can stop you from flaunting the good looks of your device. It is also disappointing to note that the gold edition is also not as impressive.
The Solarin smartphone combines looks with features. The handset has a button at the top to help in both calling people and sending encrypted messages. Not only this, it is the first device to support WiGig wireless connectivity that allows data transfer speeds of seven gigabits per second. Other highlights include a 2GHz Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB RAM, a 23.8MP camera and up-to-date software and security patches. It is thus no wonder that this is the most secure Android handset. You can either buy the Solarin with a leather back that resembles a carbon fiber wrap or with a gold finish.
This Swiss smartphone has a real leather and titanium frame for its back panel. Added to this, the handset comes with CyanogenMod 13 loaded. The Eclipse comes with a horde of fascinating features like a Full HD screen size of 5.5 inches, 3GB RAM, 64GB internal storage, a Snapdragon 801 central processor and 13MP and 5MP primary and secondary cameras respectively. The icing on the cake is that this is the first device to come with Android 6.0 Marshmallow installed out of the box.
Savelli Jardin Secret White Ice
One look at the Savelli Jardin device and you will instantly realize that this smartphone is targeted keeping its women customers in mind. This is because the handmade handset is designed using white croc leather and showcases gold accents. Also, with a 3.2-inch screen, the device is one of the undersized smartphones in today’s market. Making use of Savelli OS that has been developed by top photographers, the cameras can be expected to deliver good performance.
