The Luxury phone maker Vertu, which was recently acquired for £50 million has just launched a new phone. And yes, you guessed it right, this is yet another ‘luxury’ piece of equipment which you can own. It is called the ‘Signature Cobra’ limited edition phone and this is now the company’s flagship device for this year. Do make a note that it is not a smartphone by any means. It is just like most of the other Vertu handsets, but there are certain things that make this phone what it is.
Firstly, if you want to buy this phone, then it will be available on the online shopping website called Jingdong Mall. But you might want to be quick in getting your hands on this phone since it is going to be super limited. Only 8 units will be ever made, out of which, one will be sold in China. One of the most interesting aspects of the phone is that it is made by French Royal Jewelry brand Boucheron. Also, this particular handset is based on the original Vertu Signature.
And just like you would expect from a luxury brand like Vertu, this also comes with all the bells and whistles. It comes with gems which are precisely cut and these are created with a mosaic process. As the name suggests, it has a cobra made with 439 ruby stones. Also, they have used Emerald for the eyes of the Cobra. According to what we have been told, each handset is made up of 388 different parts and the entire device is assembled in the U.K by hand. Well, now that you know everything about this phone, let’s discuss the price.
In order to buy this phone, one has to leave a down payment of 1000 Yuan which is approximately about 10,000 INR. And then later, you have to pay a whopping 2.47 million Yuan which is approximately over 2 crore INR. And yes, for the money’s worth, you can get it delivered in style via a helicopter.
