Apple's iPhone 5 may be the most sought after phone in the world but for some it does not have enough bling as a Vertu has. For those who love the flashy, Gold & Co. of London has created a 24-karat gold-plated iPhone 5.
On September 27, Gold & Co unveiled the world's first 24-karat gold-plated iPhone 5 at the Collector's Palace in Dubai Mall.
The strictly limited edition phones, which are also available in rose gold, are each individually numbered, presented in handcrafted wooden boxes with a guaranteed certificate of authenticity and are ready for pre-order.
The latest iPhone sports a larger four-inch retina display screen that is 18 per cent thinner and 20 per cent lighter than its predecessor.
The roomier screen of the iPhone 5, which has 40 per cent more colour saturation, can be used by apps makers to provide most accurate display in the industry.
The iPhone 5 comes with Apple's newest 'A6' processor, which executives said runs twice as fast as the previous generation. It will pack three microphones - enhancing built-in voice assistant Siri -- and an 8 megapixel camera that can take panoramic views.
With the iPhone, it is shipping new 'EarPods' audiophones, designed after digitally scanning hundreds of ears.
The iPhone 5 has chips that support additional bands and frequencies and it's capable of delivering up to 100 Mbps per second.
