Lamborghini unveils Tauri 88 smartphone
When you hear the word Lamborghini you normally think of the fast, shiny and expensive Italian luxury cars. Well, it happens that Lamborghini makes other luxurious products from time to time and right now happens to be one such time – the Italian sports car maker has unveiled the Lamborghini Tauri 88 smartphone.
We don’t expect you to think that the Tauri 88 is a budget-oriented device and it isn’t – in fact it is not a smartphone for everyone due to several reasons – the Tauri 88 is a really expensive smartphone designed for owners of Lamborghini cars and other people with deep pockets and then only 1947 units will be made and sold around the world. Why 1947? Well, the year 1947 was the time when the founder of Lamborghini – Tonino Lamborghini – was born, hence the total number. Let’s see what the Tauri 88 has to offer.
The device isn’t the most powerful smartphone we have seen so far but it is not the slowest either. Using premium materials such as steel and ultra high-quality leather the Tauri 88 comes with a 5-inch display at 1920 x 1080 pixels, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 chip at 2.3 GHz, 3 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal memory plus a microSD card slot for expansion, a 20 MP rear camera, an 8 MP front camera and a 3200 mAh battery that promises 35 hours of talk time and up to 1000 hours of standby time. Furthermore the smartphone will be available in various color combinations that mix steel, gold and black with red, orange, brown and black colors.
The tech specs are nice but it is time to move to the most interesting detail. How much does a Tauri 88 smartphone cost? The answer is simple – USD 6000. This is a lot but like we said Lamborghini is not for everyone. At least there’s nothing wrong in having dreams about this device – after all they are still free.
