If you thought that Apple’s upcoming smartphone iPhone 8 is the costliest phone in the history of smartphones, you might want to reconsider as the British manufacturer and luxury smartphone maker Vertu has unveiled a new smartphone under its ‘Signature’ series that will blow your minds away (literally!). The limited edition Vertu Signature Cobra feature phone is embellished with rubies and costs CNY 24,74,000 (Rs 2,32,15,236 crore) only. Only eight units of Vertu Signature Cobra will be manufactured. If you are wondering what’s so special about the phone.
Vertu Signature Cobra has been embellished with 436 rubies (yes, that’s right) that have been carefully placed on the ‘cobra’ shape of the phone, which has two emerald eyes. Furthermore, the phone is made of 388 different parts that have been assembled by hand in the United Kingdom.
But that’s just the beginning of the description of the ‘jewelled’ phone. The phone is not special because of its ‘smart’ features but because it has been designed by French jewellery brand Boucheron. And if you do manage to get your hands on one the eight phones, you will have to make a downpayment of CYN 1,000 (Rs 10,000 approx). The phone will be delivered to you by a helicopter when you make the full payment.
The phone has been listed for purchase on Chinese e-retailer jd.com. In terms of technical specifications, the phone sports a 2-inch TFT display with a resolution of 240*160 pixels. It has 2GB RAM and 16GB internal memory and 1,200 mAh Li-ion battery.
Good luck getting your hands on Vertu Signature Cobra phone!
