Gresso Luxor: luxury phone for $4000

The luxury phone manufacturer Gresso has released a a new model called Luxor. The device is named after the capital of Ancient Egypt.

The new Luxor phone combines the “luxury of the ancient Egyptian treasures and innovations of the 21st century.” Three main components contribute to the phone’s $4000 price tag: African blackwood, ceramics and sapphire.

Gresso Luxor’s back panel is made from 200-year old African blackwood, while the case of the handset is manufactured from titanium alloy and coated with high-tech ceramics.

The front part of the phone is decorated with a bezel made of planished steel with black PVD coating, while around the screen there are several 42-carat sapphire crystals.
