Legend announces luxury variants of Samsung's Galaxy S6
While owning the latest high-end smartphone can be considered a luxury in its own, for some customers that's still insufficient to stand out. Luxury brands such as Vertu exist for them, offering smartphones made of precious metals and incrusted with various gems, but these models are often behind the mainstream flagships in terms of specifications. Finland-based company Legend offers a solution: its portfolio includes custom-made variants of Samsung's Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge.
While priced much higher than the regular models, these luxury smartphones offer impressive and unique designs and utilize rare materials such as 18K or 24K gold, rose gold and 950 platinum ($2320); alternative options include rhodium and crocodile leather. Additionally, a model with a diamond studded bezel will be made available in May, carrying a $14 thousand price tag. Customers may also contact the company to request custom laser or hand engravings, different materials or diamond inlays.
Legend uses 128 GB versions of both the S6 and the S6 Edge and assures that it has engineered the casing in a way that doesn't affect the antennas' reception. To match the high pricing, the company provides a 5 year warranty for its products.
