We live in a culture that is increasingly reliant on technology, and cellphones have virtually reached global parity. While it may appear that the majority of phones are interchangeable with the exception of a few operating aspects, there are a handful that are on an entirely different level. For the most tech enthusiasts, these are some of the most expensive cellphones in the world, combining style and utility in genuinely original ways.
Before we start, if you want to know about the latest mobile phone prices in Pakistan, PhoneWorld can covered you.
8) Vertu Signature Cobra – $310,000
Originally an offshoot of Nokia, Vertu is a prestigious premium phone brand, and the Signature Cobra may be their crowning achievement. The phone, created by the French jewellers Boucheron, has been assembled by hand for a more artisanal touch and is restricted to just eight copies globally. The handset is encircled by a snake made of pure gold, white diamonds, emeralds, and rubies, which is the most distinguishing feature.
7) Goldvish Revolution – $488,150
Upon first glance, it is apparent that goldvish, a Swedish business, created something pretty distinctive with this item. The phone incorporates materials like as white gold, rose gold, leather, diamonds, and sapphire glass, as well as a circular form that is more aesthetically pleasing than the squared-off designs of typical phones. It also features a removable analogue timepiece for further distinction. There are only 32 pieces in existence, and they will undoubtedly grow much rarer over time.
6) Gresso Las Vegas Jackpot – $1 million
This phone’s construction of gold and black diamonds (totaling 45,5 carats) makes it a true jackpot. The stunning back panel of the phone is crafted from a 200-year-old African tree, and its 17 laser-engraved sapphire keys have been hand-polished. Only three phones were ever manufactured, and each is etched with a unique number on the wood panelling, so you know you possess something genuinely unique.
5) Goldvish Le Million – $1,300,000,000
This stunning dagger-shaped phone was once the most costly phone in the world, according to the Guinness Book of World Records. The body is composed of 18-karat white gold and 120-carat diamonds. Le Million, like the Jackpot, is restricted to three pieces.
4) Diamond Crypto Smartphone – $1.3 million
Peter Aloisson, an Austrian designer, created the Diamond Crypto, the world’s most costly phone at the time of its debut. The phone is composed of platinum, with a rose gold logo and home button, and Macassar Ebony side panels of the highest quality. The phone derives its name from two distinguishing characteristics: it is encrusted with 50 diamonds, including 10 extremely rare blue diamonds, and it utilises a specially created encryption technology to keep all of its data safe.
3) iPhone 3G King’s Button – $2.5 million
The King’s Button, another creation by Aloisson and maybe his most well-known to date, is composed of 18-karat yellow, white, and rose gold. The white gold is in the form of a strip that runs around the phone’s edges and is adorned with 138 diamonds. The ‘King’s Button’, which consists of a 6.6-carat diamond and replaces the home button, is what makes this phone truly remarkable.
2) Goldstriker iPhone 3GS Supreme – $3.2 million
The Goldstriker and the Kings Button have many similarities, but the Goldstriker takes these similarities to a new level. For starters, British designer Stuart Hughes used 22-karat gold in his design, as well as 136 diamonds encircling the phone’s perimeter and 53 diamonds making the Apple logo. The home button has once again been replaced with a diamond, but this one is a massive 7.1 carats. In addition, the phone comes in a box constructed from a single piece of granite and adorned with leather and Kashmir gold.
1) iPhone 4 Diamond Rose Edition – $8 million
This is another invention by Stuart Hughes, of which there are only two in the world, each of which is a one-of-a-kind sculpture. The phone is constructed of rose fold and features 500 diamonds weighing 100 carats in addition to 53 diamonds on the Apple logo. This phone, like the previous two entries, displays a diamond in lieu of the home button, but ups the ante with a 7.4-carat pink diamond. Like the Goldstriker, it comes in a presentation box made of granite.
