Famous car manufacturer Lamborghini is set to launch a new “signature smartphone” that will be available in both the UK and UAE.
It is believed that the company is working in conjunction with South Korean company Dasan Networks and ZTE, the large Chinese company.
The smartphone which will be called Alpha One had previously been launched in both Russia and South Korea with a Chinese launch also predicted.
As you would imagine, there has been a lot of emphasis placed on the materials that make up the device, liquid metal, which is “an alloy that provides unique properties including high strength, corrosion resistance, light weight and malleability”, and Italian leather.
It will be powered by Android Nougat 7.0 and will come complete with a 5.5-inch, 1440×2560 pixel screen.
When it comes to sound, it has dual speakers with Dolby audio and the cameras are 20MP and 8MP rear and front respectively. The processor is the Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 and it has the fairly standard 4GB of RAM and 64GB of onboard storage.
The device will only be available in the UK in Harrods and in the UAE through Levant store in Dubai Mall, as well as Levant boutiques in a number of high-end hotels. However, it certainly won’t be cheap costing €2,450 excluding taxes.
It is believed that the company will use space freed up by Vertu, the luxury device player founded by Nokia. The company has changed hands several times and has even closed its UK facility.
