Back in January, ModeLabs and Versace announced they’re working on a luxury phone, and now the companies are introducing the Versace Unique, a handset presented as ‘the first luxury touchscreen and full-featured multimedia creation’ that will be available through Versace’s flagship boutiques and other jewelry networks.
The luxury mobile device has a sapphire crystal screen that is said to be the largest single piece ever offered in a consumer device. Impossible to scratch, smooth and receptive, it provides an ideal conductivity and precision control of the touchphone interface. Gold plating and high-tech ceramic or handmade lacquer construction options add to the luxury look. The face is constructed from pure high-tech ceramic or handmade lacquers delicately framed with an 18K yellow gold finish or 316L grade stainless steel inlay. The back is wrapped in the finest handcrafted leather, embossed with the Medusa head.
Beneath the precious exterior of Versace Unique lies a world of advanced technology created by LG that guarantees a seamless interface between life and technology, design and usefulness. Versace Unique handles all the duties of a phone, 3G network, client e-mail, media player, full-powered 5-megapixel flash camera and netbook. It features unprecedented Dolby Mobile surround sound technology for high quality in ringtones, MP3 music files and video with 30 hours of playtime.
The Versace Unique will be sold at jewelry stores and Versace boutiques worldwide from early June 2010.
