You can now pre-order a gold-plated, diamond-encrusted iPhone 6 for 'just' $48 million
There's just a few hours left until the iPhone 6 unveiling event and some luxury studios are already offering super-premium versions of Apple's latest handset. Now, if a ~$2,000 Goldgenie golden iPhone with Swarovski jewels is too plebeian for you, and a ~$4,000 24K gold-laden handset from Amosu looks way too common for a person of your stature, you may be interested in a $48.5 million gold-encrusted iPhone 6. How does that sound?

Indeed, Falcon Luxury Group – a studio dedicated to delivering uber-premium Apple devices and accessories – offers a line of solid gold, pink gold, and platinum-plated iPhone 6 handsets, incrusted with different-colored diamonds – from black to pink – and spanning price tiers from $1,650,000 to the whooping $48,500,000. And if you are worried about finding the headphones to match – fret not – Falcon also offers EarPods, plated with the same choice of metals for $300,000 a set.

Well, you may not be one to throw money at this offer, but hey – at least Falcon's renders confirm the iPhone 6 design yet again. So you might as well just check those out. Additionally, the website claims that these are based on the 5.5", 128 GB model, so there's another third-party confirmation that the big storage is coming - though, it could still be at a later stage.

rich people who are ignorant. Rich people should be smart enough that this luxurious device is nonsense, Yeah sure, smart phone becomes an fashion statement now, but smartphones evolves thru time, jewels and golds are timeless. but if you combine it with technology, it'll be outdated. also the designs of the phones changes. if i want an expensive accessory for my phone, I'll buy a brick of Gold, and diamonds, and contract an artisan or blacksmith to make me a case for my phone. so if i ever change my phone i can melt it and redesign again.

and you will never be a millionaire ever. rich people are the most arogant ones in the world.

Rich people that gained inheritance perhaps. Someone like Richard Branson wouldn't be dumb enough to pay $48 million for something like this. After all, self-made billionaires haven't made their money throwing them around on crap like this.

$48 million dollars? if i had that money, I can contract a smartphone company to make my own design with my dream specs! Ignorance is a bliss.

It's an ugly design and those tacky metal colors do it even greater injustice. I would love to know who would be willing spend upward of $48,000,000.00 on the top tiered option.

Some wealthy celebrity that'll end up uploading nudes of themselves to iCloud with a password of "password". So maybe Paris Hilton.

Some international smugglers, who don't know value of money and human life... Some politicians, who gathered zillion$ wealth by corruption...

This is for dumb people with too much money, I guess. I also bet it doesn't cost them more than $100,000 to produce one of those, but charge $48 million.
