If you thought Lamborghini is only super-cool when it comes to sports cars, well, the company has some surprises for you – or maybe a surprise.
Just like the cars, which normally sport stunning colors, futuristic designs but with outrageous price tags, Lamborghini has launched a similar Android smartphone known as Alpha One. There’s just that thing that comes to your mind when you hear the mention of Lamborghini. This is the same thought that should be in your head right now with respect to the Alpha One.
The phone is dazzling and everything about it looks loud, but there’s nothing out of the smartphone world about its basic design language. But to keep the “Lamborghini” status, the Alpha One has a gold trim on the outlines and around the camera cutout. According to the company, the phone’s rear panel is made of Italian handmade black leather, and like you’ve probably guessed already, there’s another gold stitching running down the middle.
The fingerprint scanner comes just below the camera LED flash, but it gets a surprising yellowish color that makes the whole rear panel look odd, especially with a red Lamborghini logo slightly below the scanner.
By now you’re probably eager to know the specs of this Alpha One phone. It has a 5.5-inch WQHD AMOLED display screen with Corning’s Gorilla Glass 4 and is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 – a 2016 chipset – alongside 4GB of RAM. For storing your files, the phone has 64GB, which can be expanded using a microSD card of up to 128GB. There’s a 20MP sensor with f/1.8 aperture, OIS, EIS and 4K video recording in the back camera while the front unit gets an 8MP sensor.
To keep this Lamborghini Alpha One alive is a 3250mAh battery unit and software-wise, you get Android Nougat out of the box. Now, what do you think is the price of this phone?
Apparently, Lamborghini wants a whopping $2,450 for the Alpha One. I know what you are probably thinking, but yes, if someone can buy a Lamborghini sports car, why not get the Alpha One phone to tag along? Not bad at all. Like it’s cars, the company ships this phone worldwide.
