Hot on the heels of the iPhone 6 announcement, a luxury phone brand is offering bespoke handsets for up to $52.4million.
New York-based luxury brand Falcon are offering a bespoke iPhone 6 fitted with a platinum, 24-karat gold or rose gold case and embedded in the back with a sapphire, emerald, ruby or diamond.
The base model fitted with a black diamond will set you back $1.78million, while the pink diamond-embedded ‘Super Nova’ edition will put a dent in your bank balance to the tune of $52.4million.
Falcon says it uses premium metals, gemstones, and materials to fabricate limited editions for ‘ultra high net worth consumers and collectors who seek a unique experience with mobile computing devices and accessories’.
The luxury brand are offering 24 choices in the iPhone 6 collection. All 24 combine the three same-cost case choices, platinum, 24-carat gold and rose gold and eight embedded gems.
This is where the cost starts to skyrocket.
Black diamond costs $1.78million, emerald cut diamond costs $2.43million while blue sapphire, emerald or ruby costs $5.13million.
The next step up is quite a significant one.
Blue diamond will set you back a whopping $35.1million, orange diamond for $45.9million and pink diamond for $52.4million.
Each phone comes with 128GB of memory and standard iPhone equipment including a USB cable, power adapter, user manual and standard Apple headphones.
Falcon can also supply ear pods in solid platinum, 24-karat gold or rose gold to match your phone. This added luxury will set you back $324,000.
The phone will be unlocked worldwide and comes with a five-year warranty.
Falcon also offer an ‘elite’ 24-hour concierge service that they say provides 24-hour worldwide assistance, recommendations and services.
Users shall have no fears over privacy with their new headset neither, as Falcon guarantees that all communications will evade global electronic surveillance.
The company claims all calls, texts and video chats cannot be monitored, logged for meta data, or subpoenaed by a government organisation on a Falcon device.
If you’re allured to the idea of a luxury mobile phone, but can’t quite stretch to Falcon’s budget, there are other not-so-pricey alternatives on the market.
Los Angeles-based Brikk are offering platinum or 24-carat or pink gold iPhone 6′s, with a diamond-encrusted Apple logo to the back for $12,836.
If you want to go even further down the scale, London-based Goldgenie will bling up your new iPhone 6 in 24-carat gold, rose gold or platinum for just a mere $3,842.
