Did you know that Lamborghini was making smartphones? Me no. And if I had 2450 dollars to slam like that, I sure would not buy their last device.
Like watches, cars, or fashion, the world of electronics does not escape luxury. If Vertu (RIP) did not hesitate to offer smartphones to more than 10,000 dollars, it was not the only actor in the niche. Lamborghini has had its own brand of mobiles for quite some years (very surely in white label). By 2014, for example, was already released the Lamborghini 88 Tauri, a very average device to the correct technical sheet sold more than 5000 dollars. Today a new smartphone of the brand has just been announced: the Alpha One Premium.
Why am I as naughty with this smartphone to the point of treating it from high-end smartphone? Because it is obviously not worth its price. It is a 5.5-inch smartphone covered with black hand-sewn leather and a chassis made of “liquid metal more resistant than titanium”, a material that would be used on high-end golf clubs And the scalpels if I believe the description. The kind of smartphone that I will not dare to put in my pocket for fear of damaging it.
As for his technical sheet, it is just honorable. Admittedly, the phone has an AMOLED screen. But his chip, a Snpadragon 820, is slowly starting to age. It comes with 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal memory. At the back we find a 20 MP photo sensor (unknown reference, but with a nice f / 1.8 aperture) and under the hood a battery of 3250 mAh and a DAC (for sound processing) are present.
The problem with this phone is of course its price. For $ 2,450 you can get yourself a Galaxy S8, an iPhone 7 Plus with the maximum of options or virtually 5 OnePlus 5. If you have too much money on your bank account, you can always take a look at the site Official of the beast.
