The 9 most expensive smartphones you can buy right now

The top-end premium offerings from the likes of Samsung and Apple are great and all, but millions of other people have those.

If you have more money than there are people in your country, then you’re probably looking for a phone that only you and maybe a few of your rich pals own to differentiate yourself from the great unwashed masses.

Unfortunately for the insanely rich Apple fanboys out there, these phones run on the Android operating system, as Apple doesn’t let other phone makers use iOS.

Funny enough, most of these smartphones have the same specs as the normal phones that we, the hoi polloi, use. At the same time, some of them come with special exclusive features. Others just look pretty.

Maybe enough leather and diamonds will help you look past the normal specs on some of these models. Check out the most luxurious and expensive smartphones you can buy:

6. Mobiado Grand Touch em Marble: $3,100

A marble phone sounds like it could be extremely heavy. Other finish options of the Mobiadoinclude burl, cocobolo, ebony, and granite. Admittedly, they all look absolutely gorgeous.

5. Tonino Lamborghini 88 Tauri: $5,250

The Tonino Tauri 88 by Lamborghini is dressed in leather and steel, but it surprisingly doesn’t have the most up-to-date specs.

4. Gresso Regal Gold: $6,000

Gresso’s Regal Gold model is made with 18-karat gold.

3. Sirin Solarin Crystal White Carbon DLC: $15,900

The Solarin phone is built on the premise of ultra-security for the ultrarich and ultrasecretive.

The Sirin Solarin is made with white leather in a carbon texture and inlaid with black diamonds.

2. Vertu New Signature Touch with Sky Blue calf leather: $19,800

Vertu phones come with special features, like a live 24-hour concierge you can call or text to get or do anything in the world for you.

The Sky Blue option is quilted and costs $10,000 more than the other calf leather options without quilting.

Other less expensive options are lizard and alligator skin.

1. Goldvish Eclipse with diamonds and black alligator skin: $36,655

The less expensive models of the Goldvish Eclipse are also adorned in alligator skin and go for a much more reasonable — sarcasm — $7,000, but it’s the diamonds that brings this model’s price into the five-figure range.
