While Nokia plans to exit the super luxury phone business with the sale of Vertu, it isn’t the last we’ll see of overpriced feature phones on the market. Gresso, another company that develops pricey handsets, has recently launched a new addition to its Avantgarde Collection. Called the Grand Premiere, this feature phone might not be as functional as your iOS or Android device, but for what it lacks on the inside, it more than makes up with its exterior.
The Grand Premiere features a striking design that’s made from 150 grams of 18 carat gold. It also features black sapphire for a little variety, and is only 12mm-thin. It features precision cut buttons for its keypad, and etched numbers for easy reading. No mention of the phone’s operating system, but we’re pretty sure it’s not going to be running Angry Birds or Netflix.
Only 30 units of the Grand Premiere will be made, so if you want to get your hands on one, you better act fast. Though with its estimated $50,000 price tag, I doubt it’s going to fly off the shelves.
