The Aster’s body is a hand-made combination of hardened titanium and leather (or exotic skins like snake skin) with a red ‘ruby’ key on the side. Initially expected on the iPhone 6, it flaunts a full-on sapphire display which is the next hardest material to diamond.
It basically has a very stylish design with a premium build, and we know that a smartphone something like this would come at a rather hefty price tag. The Aster starts at $6,900 or roughly Php310K and reaches up to $9,700 or Php434K depending on the model – this is one phone you wouldn’t want to just accidentally lose. (Want something more expensive? How about the Php495K-worth Vertu Signature Touch?)
