Lamborghini launches Alpha-One, Android-powered smartphone with Snapdragon 820

Posted August 24, 2017

Well, the latest Lamborghini Alpha-One is a smartphone, not a vehicle.

If you're paying around three times the price of today's flagships, you would expect the Alpha-One to have some impressive hardware. But they're not the luxury vehicle manufacturerrs to make the shift from cars to phones.

Starting from August 22nd, Alpha-One will also enter the UAE market: the premium smartphone will be available at the Levant luxury boutique in the Dubai Mall, the world's largest shopping center and in the highest-level hotels in UAE such as Levant Boutique at Atlantis Hotel The Palm, Jumeirah Al Qasr Hotel, Jumeirah Al Naseem Hotel, Four Season Hotel, and Jumeirah Zabeel Saray Hotel.

The Alpha One has been developed using a liquid alloy which keeps it resistant to corrosion while still remaining lightweight. They value luxury, maybe?
