Priced at $1.3 million, the Diamond Crypto smartphone boasts of its high price tag due to the name of the luxury accessory designer attached to it - Peter Aloisson from the Moscow-based JSC Ancort. It has a platinum body, and the cover is adorned with 50 diamonds — eight of which are rare blue diamonds. Moreover, the Ancort logo and the navigation key are made of 18k rose gold. This phone is highly protected against theft and technical threats, keeping your data extremely safe.
The King Button iPhone costs $2.5 million. It has a display of 3.5 inches and screen protection of Corning Gorilla Glass Oleophobic Coating. Its resolution is 320X480 pixels. The body of King Button iPhone is decorated with 138 precious diamonds, and the navigation home button is adorned with a 6.6 karat beautiful white diamond. It runs on iOS version 4.0; the primary camera is 8 megapixels, and the secondary camera is 2 megapixels, which ensures that you get excellent and clear photos.
Goldsticker iPhone is the world’s third most expensive phone costing at $3 million. It was launched in 2009 with the latest 3G technology. It has a screen display of 3.5 inches with a screen resolution of 320X480 pixels. The phone’s screen is protected with Corning Gorilla Glass Oleophobic Coating. There are 136 Plus diamonds and a home button that is made with 7.1 karat diamond. The gold sticker weighs 271 grams. One of the main reasons why it is one of the most expensive phones in the world is due to the fact that it is made with pure 22 karat Kashmir gold.
The Diamond Rose iPhone is the world’s second most expensive phone, costing about $8 million. It is fully decorated with diamonds and has a memory of 32 GB. The features of this phone are the same as the iPhone 4s, with no extra or advanced features. However, the reason for the $8 million price tag is because it is designed by Stuart Hughes who decorated this phone with 500 pink colored diamonds. The back cover has an Apple icon which is designed with 53 diamonds, and front navigation button design is also encrusted with diamonds. The design is handmade and has a 3.5 inches touchscreen display with 640X960 pixels screen resolution. It has a gorilla screen protection ensuring that this extremely precious phone is sturdy and doesn’t get damaged easily.
Another Apple phone tops the world’s most expensive smartphone list. And this one costs a whopping $95.5 million! One might not expect a smartphone to cost almost a billion dollars, but the Falcon Supernova Pink Diamond iPhone 6 has managed to shatter that expectation. It tops the most expensive list for 2 reasons — a) it is covered in one huge precious diamond instead of being covered in small diamonds like the other phones on this list and b) because of the Apple tag.
If you have deep pockets and a love for smartphones, these are the phones that must make your to-buy list.
