Vertu launched Signature Cobra for whopping $360K. Luxury phone maker Vertu is known for launching feature phones and smartphones with a crazy price tag. Their most of the luxury smartphones are hand-made in the United Kingdom, have a very premium built quality and carry an insanely high price.
The company has launched another luxury limited edition device called as “Signature Cobra Limited Edition” and the device is based on their original ‘Signature’ feature phone.
If you are thinking that, the device will have crazy specification then you are right but; in a negative way. This is not a smartphone, it’s just a regular feature phone with having quite better specifications compared to regular feature phones.
Vertu phones are not made for boasting specifications, they carry premium design and craftsmanship. And Signature Cobra Limited Edition is not different, it is a limited edition smartphone and a total of 8 units will be manufactured. These all 8 devices will be only sold in China.
This is not a regular feature phone, the body of the device is made by 439 precisely cut rubies and they are put together in such a way that they look like a cobra, that’s where the name comes from. Eyes of the cobra are made up of two emeralds.
The entire device is made up of total 388 parts, which is a lot for a feature phone. Vertu has made the phone in collaboration with French jewellery brand Boucheron.
The Vertu Signature Cobra features 2″ 240 x 320 TFT LCD display protected by sapphire crystal. The device has 2GB RAM and 16GB internal storage.
The device was listed on popular Chinese e-commerce website JDMall.com for CNY 24,74,000 which translates to INR 2.32 crore and $360,000 respectively. Customers can pre-order the device by making down payment of CNY 1000 which is $145. Once the rest of the payment is done then the device will be delivered via helicopter. That’s crazy huh?
