This iPhone 13 Pro costs $8610! Wonder why? Your hint is a T-Rex
iPhone 13 Pro Tyrannophone edition costs $8610 and is made by luxury phone customization brand Caviar. Know why it costs so high.
iPhone 13 Pro starting at $8,610? No, it is not a typo. It is the price of an actual iPhone in working condition and is sold by Caviar. The Russian luxury smartphone customization brand has taken an “ordinary” iPhone 13 Pro and stuck a piece of tooth from the fossil of a T-Rex; the scary dino from Jurassic Park.
Called the iPhone 13 Pro Tyrannophone, it is essentially a top-of-the-line iPhone 13 Pro with a expensive artwork stuck to its back. This one has the sculpture of a T-Rex dinosaur that actually has a bit of real T-Rex fossil in the tooth section. Beats Apple's stainless steel in terms of exclusivity, right?
iPhone 13 Pro Tyrannophone goes for astronomical prices
Similar to Apple's options, Caviar is offering the customized phone in two sizes. There's the standard iPhone 13 Pro-based variant that costs $8,610, and the bigger iPhone 13 Pro Max-based variant costs $9,150! Still not as expensive as the Donald Trump special edition variant Caviar made a while ago.
As part of the Tear series, there are three variants available at disposal. The one with the dinosaur portrait has the real T-Rex tooth fossil embedded in it along with an amber for the eye. The rear is made of a lightweight composite aluminium alloy with gold jewelry material.
While the second variant has red claw marks over the same dark metal, it is the third variant that has a total of 1024 diamonds on the back. Whichever variant you choose, you get 1TB of option as standard with these iPhone 13 Pro models.
And Caviar is just putting 7 units on sale. Hence, not many units up for grabs.
Sadly, Caviar couldn't put a USB-C port on these ultra-special iPhone 13 Pro models. If you do want an iPhone with a USB-C, you can check out this iPhone X, which does have a USB-C port.
For the mere mortals, Apple is selling the iPhone 13 Pro at a starting price of INR 1,19,900, and the bigger iPhone 13 Pro Max at a starting price of INR 1,29,900.
