Gresso Regal Black now official, built with Titanium and Gold
Luxury smartphone makers have been announcing a lot as of the late. We’ve seen Lamborghinis and Vertus and even Blackberries, and Swiss handset maker Gresso wants to catch up as it announced a new premium device to add to its portfolio: the Regal Black.
This new titanium and optional 18-carat gold-laden smartphone, which the design may remind you of an iPhone 5/5s, sports a 5-inch 1080p display, a 1.5GHz quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, and a 13-megapixel camera. These phones are handcrafted, and takes eight hours just for the grade 5 solid titanium unibody case, a material also used in aerospace and high-end sports cars, to be milled. Sadly though, there’s no info on what specific processor, Android version, nor battery capacity the phone has.
Gresso Regal Black specs:
5″ Full HD display, 1920×1080, 441ppi
1.5 GHz quad-core processor
32GB internal memory
13-megapixel AF rear camera with LED flash
5-megapixel front camera
3G WCDMA 900/2100
143,2 x 70,2 x 8,8 mm, 205g
Up to 6 hours talk time, up to 300 hours on standby
