If you're paying around three times the price of today's flagships, you would expect the Alpha-One to have some impressive hardware. While this is all the luxury the phone offers for shelling a sky-high amount of money, the specs are something that you will not be smitten by. In the United Kingdom, it'll be sold exclusively at Harrod's while in the UAE, it'll be sold at multiple retailers, including at Levant luxury boutique in the Dubai Mall.

Some smartphones with similar specs from other companies were released as early as in the first half of 2016, and many of them are now priced much cheaper. The luxury handset runs on Android Nougat and features 4GB of RAM with 64GB of inbuilt storage that is expandable via microSD card (up to 128GB).

But the attention to detail goes further, the leather on the phone goes through a process where aniline dye is applied progressively to the base of the leather, by hand, to perfectly show the natural and unique grain of the leather on the phone.
