Lamborghini Introduces Its New Expensive Android Smartphone, But Is It Worth That Price?

Tonino Lamborghini, the premium Italian brand, that sells non-automotive Lamborghini-lifestyle luxury products has launched an Android smartphone called Alpha-One. Just like the Lamborghini cars, this luxury smartphone too carries a hefty price tag of $2,450.

According to Tonino, the Alpha-One is a “signature smartphone” that is made with “the finest materials,” such as liquid alloy (stronger than Titanium) and Italian handmade black leather. It is designed specifically to resist corrosion. The luxury phone sports the company’s ‘Raging Bull’ logo on the back and comes in a package that has a custom Italian leather phone case along with a charging cable.

On the specifications front, the Alpha-One comes with a 5.5-inch QuadHD (2560×1440) AMOLED display with Corning Gorilla glass. It is powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 quad-core processor paired with Adreno 530 GPU. The luxury handset features 4GB of RAM along with 64GB of inbuilt storage that is expandable up to 128GB via microSD card. The dual-SIM (Nano+Nano) smartphone runs on Android 7.0 Nougat operating system and is powered by a huge 3,250mAh battery with QuickCharge 3.0.

On the camera front, the Lamborghini smartphone sports a 20MP main camera with f/1.8 aperture and an 8MP selfie camera. It also comes with 4K video recording, OIS (optical image stabilisation), EIS (electronic image stabilization) and dual front-facing speakers that feature Dolby ATMOS Digital Surround for an immersive audio experience. There’s also a fingerprint reader, a USB-C port, a headphone jack and a dedicated DAC and ADC for hi-fi sound. It comes with AKM 4961 Hi-Fi processor along with AKM 4490 HiFi Audio Amplifier.

If the ridiculously priced Alpha-One excites you and for some reason you want to buy an Alpha-One, you can grab it online, or from London’s Harrods store in the UK, and from a number of shops, such as the Dubai Mall’s Levant luxury boutique, in the UAE.
