Gold-plated iPhone 6 Elite versions already up on preorder for a hefty price
Luxury phone studio Goldgenie has outed its first batch of iPhone 6 tuning solutions, depicting in full detail what the phone could end up looking like. Goldgenie will offer Apple's 4.7" handset under the iPhone 6 Elite title in gold, platinum, and the funky rose gold for hefty prices, which depend on which precious metal execution you pick. There is even a limited Gulf Collection, with laser-engraved emblems of the seven Gulf States, for, you know, those most likely to buy such phones.

The company claims that it will have handsets set apart for its gold-plating craft immediately after release, "expected within a few weeks." Also, "having built a wide international following amongst discerning luxury connoisseurs and celebrities for their pioneering craftsmanship Goldgenie understand from experience that when the latest iPhone launches, demand for their luxury customised range of iPhones outstrips supply.... the phone is currently being offered at the iPhone 5s price and includes a LIFETIME WARRANTY on both customisation and the device, ensuring complete peace of mind. Prices start at £2,197.50 for clients who place a 50% deposit prior to launch for those who place pre-orders with a 50% deposit before Apple's launch..." Any takers?

Just another way to fleece more money out of people for the same device. Only people who have nothing better to do an spend $2000 USD on a gold plated iPhone 6. Wow talk about easy money.

I'd buy it if it has the sentence "Probably the worst decision ever but hey it comes with a life time warranty" in Elvish around the phone... If I had the money too :D

Oh well! iPhones leak too much. I think sammy does a better job at hiding their phones before launch. Anyways, this iPhone is physically beautiful or classy looking. The 5s looks more nicer, I think for me the most good looking phone now is the galaxy alpha. If the note 4 comes with everything the rumor mill has been throwing at it sammy is going to eat into apples buyers.

if you're willing to pay 2000 euros for a gold iPhone then i'm pretty sure you'd be willing to got an 1500 euros for a low end vertu phone offering true "luxurious phones"
