Today Gresso announced the launch of a new luxury handset for its customers, dubbed Cruiser Titanium and built using a single piece case made of titanium.The handset arrives on shelves with a high cost attached to it, at $2,500 (around €1,850), which does not come too much as a surprise, considering its maker.
For this amount of money, users will enjoy making calls on an exquisite piece of jewelry, since it does not come with high-end hardware specs inside and runs under Symbian S40.
The specs list of the device includes a 2-inch TFT display capable of delivering a 240 x 320 pixel resolution, 30 MB of internal storage, a microSD memory card slot to expand it, and a 2-megapixel photo snapper on the back.
The phone measures 121 x 46 x 12 mm and weighs 106 grams, while featuring Bluetooth 2.0, EDGE, and a Li-ion 860 mAh battery, that can deliver up to 5.4 hours of talk time.
The smartphone also features round keys on the front, each of them crafted manually, Gresso notes on its website.
“Round key buttons are executed from steel. Each of 21 keys are hand-polished with precision, which gives them a perfect matt gloss,” the company said.
“The handset is executed in a classic single-piece form. The solid and light metal creates a distinct look of the model. It doesn’t require additional coatings and is absolutely hypoallergenic. Titanium has low thermal conductivity, that why the metal feels ‘warm’ in hand, adding the incredible tactile qualities.”
The company also notes that the new Cruiser Titanium will provide users with increased durability, and that the phone’s luxurious case has the perfect geometrical shape of a prolonged rectangle.
“It takes about 16 hours of handwork to create one handset. Cruiser Titanium phone flawlessly combines perfect design, exclusive materials and highest professional skills of our craftsmen. Each piece has an individual serial number,” the company also said.
