The Russian-Italian luxury goods company Caviar has released a conceptual image for the iPhone 7, Caviar Press Service informed Lenta.Ru today.
The front and rear panels of the new gadget will be made of marble, according to a design inspired by the interior of the 18th Century Marble Palace in St. Petersburg. The phone will also be engraved with the Russian coat of arms. The top and bottom parts of the back panel will be plated with 18-carat gold and decorated with other engravings, including the inscription of the word “Russia” in Russian medieval handwriting.
“The new design combines Italian sophistication with Russian imperial opulence,” a Caviar representative stated. The model will be made available for purchase at $2,900.
Founded by the Italian jeweller Elia Giacometti, Caviar presented its first decorated smartphone in 2001. In 2015, the company’s management of affairs moved to Russia.
The new iPhone 7 is scheduled to be unveiled in early Sept. 2016. However, its photos have already become viral online. A video revealing the colour designs for the iPhone 7 was posted on YouTube in late July. The soon-to-be-released smartphone is expected to come in three colours: Gold, Rose Gold and Space Black.
