Budget smartphones in fact rule the market for they encompass the majority, Motorola’s C series and Xiaomi’s recent launches . But what creates the charm is the premium line of gadgets. Manufacturers have always been attempting to shorten the gap and bring premium design and specs to budget smartphones. However, some companies go for strictly high end so that people who just hate their pile of money can get some satisfactions. And if you are into like Lamborgini then you may come up with something like Alpha-One Android smartphone priced $2,450 which is around 1.57 lakhs INR.
A devilishly charming aspect of Alpha-One is its Italian handmade black leather back with ‘Raging Bull’ logo with an Italian leather phone case with the box. Other aspects of the phone though may may not elate you much.
It has a 5.5-inch WQHD (1440×2560) display powered by ancient Snapdragon 820 SoC. It runs on Android Nougat and features 4GB of RAM with 64GB of inbuilt storage. Obvious expandable microSD card up to 128GB is added in. This is a dual-SIM (Nano+Nano) device with a fingerprint sensor on the back. It includes a 3250mAh battery with QuickCharge 3.0 as well.
For optics it has smartphone features a 20-megapixel rear camera with f/1.8 aperture, 4K video recording, OIS, and EIS. An 8-megapixel front-facing camera is there for selfies. It has a dual front-facing speakers that feature Dolby Atmos Digital Surround too.
Apart from the leather finish, the rest of the specs don’t give any particular euphoria to us. It must be hard to think of spending 8 times the money only for logo and design. Alfa is currently launched in UK exclusively and at Harrod and the UAE across multiple retailers. It is not the only phone for filthy rich people to waste their money, we have covered some of them in past, but it certainly is one of the (for some people) best looking.
Considering the newly launched Note 8 costs less then half of this Lambo monstrosity, I will only recommend this phone to my enemies, but hey, if you hate your money, buying this phone is one way to get rid of it.
