Premium Italian carmaker Lamborghini is launching a luxurious Android smartphone, as we first saw via The Verge.
The device, named “Alpha-One,” will be made out of materials such as liquid metal and Italian handmade black leather, and come in a package that also includes a custom leather case.
As far as specs go, save for the old Snapdragon 820 processor, the Alpha-One is actually a pretty high-end handset.
It has a 5.5-inch, QuadHD (2560×1440) AMOLED display, 4GB of RAM, 64GB of memory (and up to 128GB of expandable storage), a big, 3250mAh battery, and two cameras with 20MP at the back and 8MP at the front.
There’s also a fingerprint reader, a USB-C port, front-firing stereo speakers, optical image stabilisation for the rear camera, and even a headphone jack and a dedicated DAC for audio fans. The onboard version of Android is 7.0 Nougat, atop which sits a customised software.
As you might expect, the phone will not come cheap: At $US2,450 (£1,915), Lamborghini’s existing customers will likely be among the few ones who actually get their hands on it.
You can find the Alpha-One online, or in select retailers in the UK and UAE. London’s Harrods will be the sole UK partner, while a number of shops, such as the Dubai Mall’s Levant luxury boutique, will have it in store in the UAE.
