Having one of the most expensive cellphones is not a luxury everyone can afford, yet it doesn’t stop companies from producing ultra limited edition cell phones for those who are willing to shell out extra to the tune of $ 3.2 Million! These ultra costly phones have some specific features like a body made up of gold and other precious metals and stones, limited availability and exclusive custom finishing. And surprisingly, the latest technology isn’t a necessary feature in these phones as some of them just have a few basic cellphone functions with ultra stylish good looks.
Here are the world’s 10 most expensive cellphones listed just for you.
1. Gold Striker iPhone 3GS Supreme
Priced at a staggering $3.2 million, this phone is the costliest in the world. Unveiled in 2009, it is still the most exclusive phone in the world. It has a body of 22 carat gold studded with over 200 diamonds, the back logo of apple is made up of about 53 precious stones and even the home button has a 7.1 carat sparkling diamond. The phone is also decorated with Kashmir gold and granite chest with a sleek lining made up of top grade Nubuck Leather. It’s a great phone to look at and is technically rich in features, just like the iPhone 3GS.
