The September presentation of Apple was able to surprise many users, despite the mass of previously published information. One liked the new features of the Apple Watch’s smart watches (in particular, the ECG function), others liked the first 7-meter A12 Bionic processor on the market, which they equipped with new iPhones.
But absolutely not left anyone indifferent to the price of future new products. Thus, the cost of a budget smartphone starts from 65 thousand, and its “elder brothers” – from 89 and 97 thousand rubles. respectively. At the same time, the price of the most expensive version, iPhone XS Max c 512 GB, is almost 128 thousand rubles. ($ 1099). Both publications, users, and even some fans of “apple” products, decorating posts with caustic comments in the spirit of “selling a kidney” and “one more loan”, unanimously declared that it was unreasonably expensive. The other day, Tim Cook called the reason for high prices – advanced functionality of devices. “The role of the iPhone in the lives of people has grown significantly,” – said Apple CEO.
In this regard, News.ru decided to talk about five expensive smartphones, compared to which the price of the iPhone XS Max will seem democratic to users.
Tonino Lamborghini Alpha One
Tonino Lamborghini is engaged in the production of luxury accessories, including very expensive mobile devices. In 2017, the company introduced the Tonino Lamborghini Alpha One with a number of features. Thus, the side frames of the device are created from the “liquid metal” LiquidAlloy, which is stronger than titanium and is more resistant to mechanical damage. The back panel of the device is made of Italian leather and decorated with the company’s logo and a plate with an engraved name. The device is equipped with a 5.5-inch AMOLED-display with Gorilla Glass 4, Snapdragon 820 chip, 4 GB of RAM and 64 GB of internal flash memory.

The smartphone supports two SIM cards, main audio and video formats and microSD memory cards up to 32 GB.

Vertu Aster Collection
Vertu has always been famous for mobile phones of the highest category: most often gold, titanium alloy and rare leathers are used in their development. Prices for devices can reach € 50 thousand, which is why the Aster collection can be called one of the cheapest in the company’s product line.

Goldvish Eclipse – the most expensive of the presented smartphones. Its price is 4.5 times the cost of the iPhone XS Max with 512 GB.
