It seems that luxury smartphones are becoming increasingly popular. There are already several high-end expensive models on the market that cost many thousands of dollars, but Bellperre has joined the fray wit its Touch luxury smartphone costing upwards of $3000.
Bellperre Touch – a choice of buffalo or alligator…
The Bellperre Touch is pitched against rivals such as Vertu, with a price tag to match of $3,000 to $3,430 depending on the materials you choose.
The Touch is made from 236L stainless steel and either American buffalo or alligator leather, in what the company has called “Touch Through Leather Technology”. This basically means a strip of leather on the lower portion of the phone which contains touch controls such as the Home and Back buttons. The Touch also has a 4.9″ Super AMOLED display with sapphire crystal glass to reduce scratches.
The phone looks pretty but it’s also extremely durable and tough – as well as being flame resistant. As for the technical specifications, it’s rather on the average side – it comes with a dual-core 1.5 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM and 48 GB of internal storage.
It also provides NFC, Bluetooth, and support for LTE (4G), plus an 8 megapixel rear camera and a 1.9 megapixel front camera. The display resolution is 1,280 x 720 pixels – not the highest on the market but not bad all the same.
When you consider that the Vertu is more than $20,000, the Bellverre Touch is a bargain in terms of luxury smartphones. Though it would be great to have a better display, camera and processor if you’re going to pay $3,000. As far as the luxury smartphone market goes, it’s more about looks and status, rather than specs however.
The Bellperre Touch delivers on those requirements – the phone is also assembled by hand and so no two phones are alike. So for $3,000 you can be the proud owner of a one-of-a-kind device that’s sure to turn heads.
