If you can afford or drive a $200,000 (Rs. 1.2 Crore) car. Why buy a $400 (Rs. 25,000) phone, when you can buy yourself a $6,300 (Almost Rs. 4 Lakhs) luxury smartphone called the 88 Tauri made by Lamborghini.
These were the Words used by Bob Hatefi, co-CEO of Lamborghini Mobile, to discuss the luxury phone.
“We are proud to present the latest and greatest in our family of luxury smartphones – the 88 Tauri, which combines cutting-edge mobile technology and unique features with the inimitable style and design that was characteristic for our company since its foundation. I am confident that our new flagship phone will open a new chapter in the history of Tonino Lamborghini Mobile and will raise the bar for luxury smartphones higher than ever before,” said Mr. Tonino Lamborghini, founder and President of Tonino Lamborghini Group.
Being such an expensive phone, The Lamborghini 88 Tauri is not a luxury phone that falters in its specifications. The specs are top-notch.
The phone is partnered by the Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor with quad-core CPU at speeds of up to 2.3 GHz per core 3GB RAM Android 4.4 Kit Kat OS Dual SIM Dual Active LTE (DSDA) configuration (both SIM-cards are active at the same time). Dual SIM feature facilitates especially those hotshot International Travelers.
It has a 5-inch Full HD display as well as 64 GB of high-speed internal memory, expandable up to 128GB via micro SD card. A USB 3.0 with direct phone-to-computer sync at 625 MB/s.
The Battery has 3400-mAh battery capacity, providing up to 35 hours of life for calls on 3G networks and 1000 hours in standby mode. The main front Camera has a 20MP auto-focus camera with a dual LED-flash, face recognition and white balance correction front-facing 8 MP camera.
There will be only 1,947 units of the 88 Tauri smartphone ever made, but each and every one of them is beyond the realm of the phones we use on a day to day basis. They are Crazy! That’s the only way to describe Tonino Lamborghini’s $6,300 Android phone. With a leather finish that has been stitched immaculately and gold-plated stainless steel around this phone, one will definitely stand out of the crowd having this phone. And that’s exactly the Luxury Mobile brand Tonino Lamborghini is building!
So, should you buy this phone?
Well… Only if you can afford a $200,000 car and if you’re ridiculously crazy.
