Lamborghini Releases Luxury Smartphone

I can't say, nor can I even guess, because I doubt I'll ever see someone with Lamborghini's new Alpha - One smartphone.

The phone apparently uses the same "stronger than titanium" liquid metal used in Lamborghini's cars and also features a 5.5-inch QHD screen with 2560 x 1440 pixels resolution.

Alpha One comes with a microSD expandable storage slot so that users can add up to 128 GB of additional storage. It also sports a 3,250mAh battery, dual SIM card support and fingerprint scanner. The "Alpha One" luxury smartphone is available only in the United Kingdom and the United Arab Emirates at a price of $2,450 (approximately Rs 1.57 lakh). Connectivity options include Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, 3G and 4G. The device also comes with two front speakers, dedicated DAC, HiFi recording processor, Dolby Atmos Digital Surround and more. This is not the first phone from Lamborghini to come with such an astronomical price tag. The onboard version of Android is 7.0 Nougat, atop which sits a customised software. The Signature Alpha One comes with a premium leather pouch manufactured in South Korea using materials sourced from Italy. The handset also has a 20-megapixel rear-facing camera and an 8-megapixel front-facing camera. It is available online, as well as luxury store Harrods in London and in the Dubai Mall, among other such stores in the UAE.

Luxury phone maker Vertu recently kissed the market goodbye after being enmeshed in huge debts but it seems the British phone company has got a quick replacement in Italian design firm Tonino Lamborghini. Further, the phone is also available for global delivery and the shipping is free of cost.

On the camera end, the Alpha One packs a 20MP f1.8 rear sensor with dual image stabilization (OIS + EIS).
