Which brand are you considering for your next smartphone? Apple, Samsung, or is it Mi?
Have you ever thought of getting a phone by Lamborghini, or Puma, or maybe KODAK? W.H.A.T.
If you didn’t think these companies made phones, we are here to correct you. .
There are many names you might be familiar with that have launched their own mobile phones, so here is a list of handy Special Edition Phones launched by brands you did not expect.
Each of us has, sometime in our life, dreamt of owning one of the models of this luxury sports car brand. Lamborghini has also come up with its own collection of devices. These phones were launched back in December 2014.
Being associated with the brand Lamborghini, the phones are, of course, premium and extravagant. The device is called the Tonino Lamborghini 88 Tauri , and the price starts at 5250 USD. The Tauri is crafted from Calfskin leather and is available in 9 colours with unlimited add-ons! if you wish, you can even get a gold plated model. In choice of stitches, colour and studs (including diamond, pearl or sapphire), the phone is customisable.
When it comes to Specs, it has a 5.0 inches display, and is powered by Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.3 Ghz processor. The phone comes with a decent camera system – a 20 MP primary shooter and a 8 MP front camera. The screen is said to be shatter proof and scratch proof because it is the same glass used to make windows for the Lambo car itself!
This renowned sports and apparel brand also released its feature phone in August 2010.
Puma collaborated with Sagem Wireless, a French phone manufacturer, to release its device. The phone was a pretty basic, having a 2.8 inches touchscreen and a TFT display panel. The device had some cool features loaded in it, including a sports tracker and a solar panel at back! The phone was priced at 469 USD back when it was released.
Kodak once had a monopoly on the camera industry, being the very company which made the first ever camera. Even though the it lost its legacy and market share, Kodak remains a large manufacturer of photography and camera products.
The phone released by Kodak in 2017 was called KODAK EKTRA. The device had a 21MP rear camera, 13MP at the front, and Mediatek Helio X20 processor clocked at 1.4 Ghz. A 3GB RAM and 32GB ROM completed the phone.
A device made by a company such as Kodak was expected to have a breathtaking camera. The company tried reach these expectations, but failed miserably. The camera was good and the prime focus, but not out of the league. Moreover, there was no attention given to software or optimisation in the device, which made it hard to use even for day to day tasks.
Christian DIOR is an ultra luxury French fashion brand. The company released its device starting at 4700 USD, but the price can go up to any amount, solely depending on the level of customisation you prefer. The phone has a 3.2 inch screen with 854×880 pixels, and a 5MP rear camera. Complete details about the device were never made public. There were ONLY 99 hand crafted pieces manufactured, which only added to the lavishness of it.
Marshall is mainly associated with professional audio equipment and audio devices, like speakers and headphones. The company launched a mobile phone, a heavenly device for music lovers and audio professionals, with a SD410 processor, and a 2GB RAM. The cameras included a 2MP front and 8MP rear camera, which were pretty decent back when it was released in July 2015.
But, the device has a lot more to offer, It has dual front stereo speakers along with dual headphone jacks. The dual headphones made it possible to listen and record at the same time. The phone also had a volume scroll at the side, Bluetooth aptX for greater wireless audio connectivity, and a dedicated button to launch its official music app at one press. The inbuilt Marshall app in the device was quite useful. The phone, on top of this, had an inbuilt sound card from CloudLogic, the same device whose cards are used in the Apple’s Airpods max!
