Apple iPhone 3GS Supreme is all about the bling
An Apple iPhone 3GS with a difference has been unveiled, featuring nearly 200 diamonds and a price tag of £1.92 million.
The iPhone 3GS Supreme is the most expensive Apple smartphone to hit the market and was designed by Liverpool dweller Stuart Hughes, who was commissioned by an anonymous Australian businessman.
With a casing made from 271 grams of 22-carat solid gold, the 3GS Supreme also boasts a front navigation button created out of a single diamond of over seven carats.
Its designer tells the Telegraph he took ten months to make the million-pound smartphone, describing Apple's original device as "the phone with the most tricks on the market".
"What possibly could we do to trick it up more? Bless it with the finest precious metal and jewels," he explains. "Most of the ten months was spent trying to source the diamond for the navigation button."
The iPhone Supreme's front bezel has 136 diamonds totalling 68 carats, its Apple logo is made from 53 more jewels and it comes in a leather-lined case created out of granite and Kashmir gold.
Needless to say, the priciest iPhone out there won't be for sale via the usual channels any time soon.
