You can now pre-order a 24k gold version of the iPhone 8


The much-awaited iPhone 8 officially hit the shelves today. Compared to its predecessors, Apple’s latest wonder comes with a bunch of fancy upgrades, including an OLED screen that alone takes its cost up to $999. However, if specifications alone do not cut it for you, you could opt for a custom version of the just released iPhone 8 that promises bling and zing of sorts!

A Dubai based company by the name of Goldgenie is dishing out gold plated as well as solid gold versions of the luxe iPhone for those who like their phones glamorous and glittering. The customizations expert promises to paint your phone in 24-k gold, rose gold or platinum for that extra edge. It will also roll out another version that comes with diamond entrustments sourced exclusively by Swarovski. Those looking for a more authentic deal can further opt for a solid 18 k covering for the iPhone 8, that can specially be reassembled by the company in place of the existing case on your phone.

Apple too is rumored to launch a “blush gold” variant of the iPhone 8, but we don’t expect it to be half as glitzy as that offered by Gold genie. The brand’s previous customizations costed around $20,000 and this may give one a que into the exorbitant pricing that can be expected on this year’s varieties. For those still interested, the gold versions of iPhone 8 can now be pre-ordered on Goldgenie’s official webpage.
