While on the one hand smartphone companies are competing with each other to make the cheapest smartphone ever, there's one in Israel which is moving in the opposite direction.
Israel-based start-up Sirin Labs has made the world's most expensive Android smartphone - Solarin. Priced at $13,705 without taxes (approximately Rs 9,22,037) the phone is expensive enough to make a sizable hole in your pocket. The phone runs on Android operating system and it is all about the functionality and performance that it offers.
Moshe Hogeg wanted to reportedly "create the most advanced mobile device that combined the highest privacy settings, operated faster than any other phone, built with the best materials from around the world", says a report by GQ India.
Solarin uses a 256 bit chip-to-chip military grade encryption. Other specifications of the smartphone are Snapdragon 810 processor, superior wifi connectivity, a 28.8 megapixel primary camera and 5.5-inch IPS LED 2K resolution screen.
