A Chinese businessman commisioned Liverpool, England-based luxury customizer, Stuart Hughes, to create the worlds’s most stunning, most luxurious, and of course, the most expensive smartphone ever. The design includes the businessman’s rare 26-carat black diamond which he inherited from his family.
The customized iPhone 5 took 9 weeks to finish. This re-creates the phone’s original chasis with solid gold and inlaid with a circa of 600 white flawless diamonds, according to Stuart Hughes official website. The rear section is also dressed with solid gold including 53 well-cut, flawless diamonds decorated on the logo. The screen, on the other hand, is reinforced with precious sapphire glass.
The masterpiece costs around £10 million or about $15.3 million. This creation topples the former title holder of the most expensive phone, the iPhone 4S Elite Gold phone, priced at £6 million or around $9.18 million. The iPhone 4S Elite Gold phone is also a brainchild of Stuart Hughes.
