Lamborghini announces $6000 smartphone

Supercar manufacture Lamborghini have announced a $6000 Android smartphone. The ‘88 Tauri’ is wrapped in blue leather, stitched at the back, and has gold metal plates running down the side edges of the phone. It looks tacky but hidden beneath the pretentious gold plates lies all of the phone’s ports; to get to them one must open the wing like covers.

Inside, there’s 3GB of RAM, a 2.3 GHz quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, and 32GB of storage to complement the 1920 x 1080p, 5-inch display. On the back sits a 20-megapixel camera and on the front sits an 8-megapixel camera for taking selfies. (You could even add the Lenovo VibeXtension Selfie Flash for flawless selfies).

The premium price tag is probably due to this phone being, unsurprisingly, a limited edition; just under 2000 of them are estimated to be produced which makes this phone perfect for filthy-rich car enthusiasts who want to show off.
