The most extravagant version of the iPhone X is here already

Let me tell you one thing that is, ironically, for free: I will not be buying the new iPhone X. The reason I will not be buying the new iPhone X is because it is AED4,099. That’s AED4,099 of my money that I’ve earned by writing articles slagging off expensive phones. I would rather spend that money on eight brunches, thank you v much.

But, woah Nelly, is AED4,099 not a jot on the price of the most ostentatious iPhone X in existence. Let’s just say that instead of buying one of these phones, I could buy 24 brunches. And let me tell you, that would be an amazing six months.

The price of this new iPhone X, or the ‘Lux iPhone X Ingot’ is £53,000 (over AED260,000). That’s a lot more expensive than the normal iPhone X, which is, as I’ve said, too expensive already.

The reason for this is because it’s encased in 250 grams of solid gold.

The phone comes from Hong Kong-based luxury designers Brikk, who customize high-end goods for people with a lot of money in their wallets and probably in their ears, too. They say:

“The Lux iPhone X Ingot is a very rare specimen.

“The Ingot 108 features 108 grams/3.50 ounces of 22K gold.

“The Ingot 250 features 250 grams/8.88 ounces of 22K gold and a mirror polished back surface.”

They also do another range, called the Lux iPhone X Deluxe Collection, which boasts 24K yellow gold cases encrusted with various precious stones, including diamonds. If you fancy one of these bad-boys, they’ll set you back from £9,835 (AED48,301) to £16,648 (AED81,625), which although cheaper than the Ingot edition, it still costs more than my skull.

Here’s a vid of the full range:


Erm, if you want one, you can get one here. Also, can I borrow some money? Go on mate, you’ve got loads.
