While Vertu many not be around anymore to sell you smartphones worth thousands of dollars, there are still plenty of companies out there who offer such devices. Take Lamborghini Mobile’s latest device for instance. A division of the iconic Italian supercar manufacturer, Lamborghini Mobile has launched its new Alpha-One Android smartphone which costs $2,450.

The Alpha-One has the specs that you’d expect from last season’s Android flagships. It’s powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM and 64GB of expandable storage.

It features a 5.5 inch Quad HD AMOLED display and a 20 megapixel rear camera. The handset even has a pair of stereo speakers with a dedicated DAC and AMP as well as Dolby Atmos audio. Keeping the lights on is a 3,250mAh battery with support for Qualcomm Quick Charge 3.0. Android 7.0 Nougat powers the handset.

To be fair, a handset with specs like these can be had for around $500. It’s basically a rebadged ZTE Axon 7. So why pay over $2,000 more? Well, you’re paying for the name, obviously, aside from the fact that there’s Italian leather on the back and liquid metal for the side frame. $2,450 also gets you an Italian leather case for the phone.

Lamborghini is selling the Alpha-One at Harrod’s in London as well as through multiple retailers in the UAE.
