Every consumer product have high-end editions that cater to the one percent. We’ve recently seen an example of this with a boom in exclusive luxury sneakers, and now we’re seeing it again with smartphones. This market for over-the-top smartphones has hit such high price points that it may not even be feasible for the 1%, but only the .01%. Here are the three most expensive smartphones in the world right now.
Vertu, in collaboration with French jeweler Boucheron, has created an incredibly decadent smartphone. Each design is a unique one-off creation that is made to order for each haute customer. Designs have included a round diamond and two emerald eyes and a case embellished with 439 red rubies. All of this bling for the pretty price point of $310,000.
This is probably not the first time you’ve heard the name Gresso in association with expensive smartphones. The Luxor Las Vegas Jackpot is their priciest one to date. The sleek phone is made from 180 grams of solid gold, and has over 200-year old African wood as the back cover. This haute phone will cost you a casual $1,000,000. No big deal!
Diamond Crypto Smartphone
The official most expensive phone in the world features over 50 diamonds, 10 of which are ultra-rare blue diamonds. The Diamond Crypto understands that those who can afford a million dollar phone probably require a lot of security. This smartphone designed by renowned Austrian jeweler Peter Aloissn will help protect you from blackmail as well as cyber intruders using the Windows CE platform. So how much is the world’s most expensive phone? $1,300,000.
