Taiwanese company unveils US$6,464 luxury iPhone 6 series

Taipei, April 3 (CNA) A Taiwanese company on Friday unveiled a series of customized Apple iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus smartphones targeted at affluent and discerning consumers, pushing the price of the premium flagship devices to around NT$200,000 (US$6,464), around seven times the standard price. Founded in 1984, NavJack Co. Ltd. specializes in luxury accessories for handheld devices. Invoking the Greek goddess of love and beauty, NavJack's Aphrodite iPhone 6 variants are plated in either 24k gold or 22k rose gold, and etched with the company's signature carbon fiber weave pattern. In addition, the area surrounding the Apple logo is adorned with 486 pieces of Swarovski crystals and rare stones. The company also unveiled a jewelry box crafted from aerospace-grade carbon fiber to store users' Aphrodite iPhone 6 handset and other valuables. In addition, the company announced that 12 variations of hand-crafted Aphrodite cases affixed with rubies of different carat sizes and gold will be made available in limited quantities. The ruby-adorned Aphrodite iPhone 6 starts at NT$195,000 and NT$205,000 for the larger iPhone 6 Plus. The company, however, is only offering 64 gigabyte versions of its luxury customized iPhones. The price of an un-adorned 64 gigabyte iPhone 6 is only NT$25,900 and NT$29,500 for an iPhone 6 Plus. (By Esme Jiang and Ted Chen)
