The £1,400 Titanium Gresso Radical Android Phone is Fit For the Terminator

By Gerald Lynch on at

Luxury smartphones usually come in gold-dipped, diamond encrusted form, but Gresso (manufacturers of premium-priced gadgetry) has taken a different direction with its (hilariously-named) Radical smartphone line. These things wouldn't look out of place coming off of a Skynet production line.

Constructed from a titanium body (with the buttons also made of titanium), the extravagantly sturdy outer shell is paired with reasonably good internal specs too. The Gresso Radical sports Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean, running off a 1.2GHz quad-core processor, squeezes in an oddly-numbered 36GB of storage space and has an 8MP camera on the rear. The 4.5-inch Gorilla Glass covered display does go a bit cheap though -- it's running at a lowly 960 x 540 resolution.

Three different models will be available from the Russian company in increasingly lavish (and pricey) finishes. The standard Radical R1 costs $1,800 (£1,100), the R2 adds an 18K yellow gold plate for $2,300 (£1,400) and the R3 sticks at $2,300 while offering an alternative 18K white gold logo. Tech specs are the same across the board. [Gresso]
