Could you imagine having enough disposable income to drop over $9 million on an iPhone? Well someone somewhere must because Stuart Hughes–maker of overpriced luxury products–has just created the iPhone 4S Elite Gold. At $9.4 million, it is officially the world’s most expensive phone. Keep in mind that this price is 11,000x the price of an unlocked 64GB iPhone. So what exactly is this phone made of?
First off, the bezel has about 500 individual diamonds. At least you wouldn’t need a bumper case, but I wonder if this affects the signal at all. The back plate is 24 carat gold and the Apple logo is made of 24 carat gold and 53 diamonds. This really makes the logo pop and brings the diamond count up to 553. The home button is a single 8.6 carat diamond, and in case you would rather a different color, a pink 8.6 carat diamond is also included.
If this wasn’t enough, it comes with a beautiful platinum chest, which includes pieces of an original t-rex bone. Where on earth did they find a t-rex bone? It also has rare stones such as Opal, Pietersite, Charoite, Rutile Quartz, and Star Sunstone.
If you think about it, the price of this phone is not that bad. Considering it costs only about 10% as much as a trip to the moon, I’d say it is a pretty reasonable. But then again, you can buy a Mercedes Benz covered in diamonds for 4.6 million, so it is all just priorities. There are only 2 of these in existence, so if you can afford one of these, you had better jump on it.
What do you think? If you had the money, would you get one? Is this just too ridiculous? Let me know in the comments below. Also, be sure to follow me on Twitter for more news, reviews, and offbeat articles.
