Gresso prepares smartphone in titanium chassis


Since 2005 Swiss company Gresso has been known for making unusual smartphones that feature a number of original, albeit often expensive enhancements. The latest smartphone of this kind to come out of Gresso is the Regal Titanium – an ordinary smartphone housed in an extraordinary chassis.

As the name suggests the Gresso Regal Titanium features a chassis made of titanium – a rare noble metal that is extremely durable and unfortunately extremely expensive. The upside is that your Regal Titanium will be pretty much immune to all kinds of damage – titanium is resistant to corrosion, high humidity, acids and sun light. In addition titanium has low thermal conductivity, which means it always feels warm when touched – another great and unusual feature of the Regal Titanium smartphone.

Next to the durable chassis the Regal Titanium offers steel keys and an enhanced display screen. The smartphone can be used when bathing, in the sea and can be dropped on the ground without getting damaged in any way.

Extreme durability is a plus, that’s for sure – but perhaps due to the enhanced chassis the Regal Titanium does not feature powerful hardware. The smartphone is based on Nokia’s S40 platform and comes with 30 MB of on-board memory, a microSD card slot for cards with capacities of up to 2 GB, Wi-Fi connection, Bluetooth 2.0, a 2 MP camera, a built-in FM radio, support for the GSM 900/1800/1900 standard and a 860 mAh battery – this is pretty much it.

Gresso will release just 333 Regal Titanium smartphones – and you can order yours online right now for USD 4500 – but it’s up to you to decide if it’s worth to pay that much for such a smartphone.
