Meet The iPhone 3GS Supreme, The World's Dearest Phone At £1.92m

The iPhone mania has reached to a whole new level of opulence as Goldstriker International has unveiled world’s most expensive iPhone for the price of £1.92 million.

Goldstriker, a Liverpool based company which specialises in customisation of high-end luxury gifts and gadgets, was reportedly commissioned by an Australia-based gold mine magnate to design the said iPhone.

The smartphone, christened iPhone 3G Supreme, has 271 grams of 22ct solid gold accompanied with 136 diamonds worth 68ct in the front. The Apple logo on the back side of the phone is made of solid gold lined with 53 flawless diamonds.

Even the navigation button on the front is embedded with a very rare 7.1ct diamond. The iPhone Supreme comes in a solid granite chest weighing 7kg along with a Kashmir gold and Nubeck leather inner lining.

Stuart Hughes, the founder of Goldstriker International who resides in Liverpool, had apparently taken nearly 10 whole months to design and create the iPhone 3G Supreme.

Though there had been previous attempts to create high end customised mobile phones which reflect the personal taste of their owners, this effort definitely takes the cake for the sheer amount of time and money that went into designing this marvel.

Our Comments

We guess that this model will never actually be used on a day to day basis. We also wonder what will happen when the next iPhone model is released. Normally, iPhone users - in the UK at least - can expect to get a free update at the end of their contracts.
