This $4,360 gold-plated iPhone 5s comes with the face of Vladimir Putin engraved on its back side
Russian president Vladimir Putin probably won’t be winning international popularity contests any time soon, but there must be people in Russia who love him. For them, Italian luxury brand Caviar / Perla Penna recently launched a gold-plated iPhone.

Called “Caviar iPhone 5S Supremo Putin”, the new gold-plated smartphone costs around $4,363, and is available to buy only in Russia. The face of Vladimir Putin is etched on the gold-plated back case of this iPhone, and so is Russia’s coat of arms. According to Caviar, the new luxurious handset is a “presidential accessory for people of a higher range.” Well, we can’t imagine someone else would buy it anyway.

The Caviar iPhone 5S Supremo Putin comes in its own specially crafted box, and you can take a look at it in the slideshow below. Of course, despite its expensive coating, this is still just an iPhone 5s that'll work like any other iPhone 5s.
