Lamborghini announces Antares a luxury smartphone running Android

In the last few days, the latest renderings of Lamborghini’s soon-to-be-launched Cabrera and its engine note teased by the Italian marquee might be keeping the fans on their toes. Still, another Lamborghini product made its way into the markets this holiday season. It’s an all-touchscreen smartphone from Tonino Lamborghini, the Italian lifestyle group that makes designer accessories from cigarette lighters to watches and even has presence in boutique hotels. The company made its foray into mobile phones back in 2010 with its Spyder line of luxury phones. But at least this time, it not only looks better but has comparatively newer hardware and software specifications, a novelty in the high-end smartphone market.

Named the Antares, the limited edition smartphone is elegantly designed, and the bodywork is inspired by the contours of the iconic Lamborghini supercars. The chassis is made of hand-crafted stainless steel and has a leather rear panel, and it comes in several different colors, including gold, which doesn’t look appealing. The smartphone is powered by Android 4.3 and comes with a 1.5 GHz quad-core processor, 1 GB of RAM, 32 GB internal memory, and a slot for micro SD cards up to 32GB. The Antares smartphone with the raging bull insignia can be bought for £2,500 ($4000 approx).
