This is the season to introduce luxury smartphones – or so it seems. Two years ago Lamborghini Mobile Group released their first luxury smartphone, the Tauri 88 with a $6,000 price tag. Last week we saw the launch of their latest – the limited edition Tonino Lamborghini ALPHA-ONE premium phone – at $2,450 it is not as pricey as the Tauri 88. Befitting a luxury launch, the device maker chose the Renaissance-styled Turandot Palace in Moscow for the occasion.
With ALPHA-ONE, Tonino is aiming to attract leaders and trendsetters with an eye for all things luxury and fashion. Basically, they are aiming for alpha males, because it is designed to attract anyone with a love and passion for speed – like a Lamborghini. A beautiful device like this deserves the best – from metal to leather they used only premium materials sourced from around the world.
Among the top quality material used to make the phone is liquid metal. A lot more durable than titanium, this metal alloy is capable of handling serious shocks as well as everyday wear and tear. Additionally, liquid metal also ages well and with time looks more elegant as well. The back is covered in beautiful Italian leather. Handmade by artisans, the leather compliment metal case and add style and offers a comfortable grip. Though currently there is no direct connection between the automaker, the ALPHA-ONE showcase the famous “Raging Bull” Lamborghini logo (not to be confused with Volkswagen-owned carmaker) on the back on a red and gold metal shield.
Powered by Android 7.0 Nougat operating system, it comes with a Dual-SIM to allow jet-setting users the convenience of using two different numbers on the same phone. Other specifications include – 5.5” WQHD (1440×2560) Gorilla Glass display; power from Qualcomm’s Snapdragon 820 processor; 4GB RAM and 64GB internal memory that is expandable to 128GB; front-facing 8MP camera and 20MP camera with 4k recording, and optical, and digital image stabilization. Its Dolby Audio System dual front facing speakers offers high-quality 3D surround sound.
There are few additional items included as part of the package that anyone often on the road finds useful. In addition to its powerful 3250 mAh battery with 314 standby hours, ALPHA-ONE comes with 5000 mAh ultra-portable Tonino Lamborghini power pack. Another is the accompanying Quick Charge Adapter with USB Type-C. For those security conscious users – it comes with a fingerprint enhanced Security USB to safely store and prevent unauthorized access to your data and documents. To protect the Tonino Lamborghini ALPHA-ONE from scratches and whatnot they also included a bespoke Italian leather case – handcrafted in Italy. To pre-order visit Lamborghini Mobile online store.
