Personalized luxury designer smartphone brands with the alliance of top collective fashion & mobile industries make it a more classy & fancy look.
Nowadays we are missing fashion & design in The mobile Phone while before purchasing gives more focus on specifications. In this article first of all I want to look at the current debate on the fashion, design, and style of the mobile phone.
Most Designer Mobile Phones
With top fashion designers branching out into the world of hotels, beauty products, cars, and anything else that you could think of, it was only a matter of time before they came out with their own cell phones too. From Prada to Dior, Armani, and Versace, more and more luxury brands are now launching their own mobile phones.
1. LG PRADA: The LG Prada was the first capacitive touchscreen phone, not the iPhone
There’s no question that the iPhone radically changed the smartphone industry. Decades from now, there will be two eras of mobile technology: pre-iPhone and post-iPhone.
However, it’s important to remember that the iPhone wasn’t the first of its kind. Instead, that honor goes to the little-known LG Prada.
2. Galaxy Ace Hugo Boss: Samsung and Hugo Boss have come together to launch the Hugo Boss phone.
Samsung Hugo boss with a 2.8-inch touch screen, a 5-megapixel camera, and 3G capabilities. It wouldn’t be a Hugo Boss then if it didn’t come with a custom-designed interface with Hugo Boss-themed icons and ring tones. The phone costs about Rs 32,000 and comes with its own Hugo Boss-styled Bluetooth headset.
This special edition was available in 2011 at select HUGO BOSS shops, their website, and The Phonehouse.
3.D&G: D&G’s stylish handset was launched in collaboration with Sony.
The partnership of this mobile phone represented in D&G (Dolce & Gabbana)and Sony Ericsson ensures that sophisticated, state-of-the-art technology is delivered with contemporary, metropolitan glamour in the year 2009.
Called the Jalou, it is pretty ordinary when it comes to its tech specs. It isn’t the 2-inch display, 3.2-megapixel camera, 3G capabilities, GPS, and FM radio that make it unique. At 73 mm tall, it is shorter than your favorite lipstick says the ad.
What’s more, is that the 2-inch screen turns into a mirror at the touch of a button. And it comes of course with preloaded D&G content that includes exclusive photographs and video clips, custom themes, and wallpapers.
4. Dolce & Gabbana’s Fabulous Motorola RAZR V3i: The best shining example is the D&G RAZR in Dolce & Gabbana’s spring 2006 collection. The glimmering phone was a £400 gold-covered limited edition Motorola RAZR V3i.
The phone features everything you’ve come to expect from the RAZR line, but it comes with the added benefit of gold plating and the D&G brand.
I can remember I was working with Motorola and the price was super excited $299 at the moment of launch, people were crazy to take this in 2006. No one there was asking about phone specs, Its gold-plated design had won everyone’s heart.
5. SAMSUNG Armani: After the Dolce & Gabbana Razr and the Prada LG Chocolate, it’ was Armani’s turn to launch its Samsung touch screen phone in Milan during the Milan Fashion Week.
The Giorgio Armani Samsung phone was available in selected mobile phone stores and Giorgio Armani boutiques in major European countries starting in November 2008 with expansion to other markets planned for 2008.
Much like the Prada-LG association, Armani and Samsung go way back. The Armani phone is a Windows-based touch screen handset designed for the businessman. It boasts a 3.5-inch screen, a 5-megapixel camera, 8 GB of internal memory, and GPS navigation.
6. Versace: The Versace phone has been made in collaboration with LG.
This super-luxe cell phone known as the Versace Unique is the touch screen, has a 5-megapixel camera, Dolby Mobile Surround, and is 3G compliant. The body of the phone has some very expensive detailing.
It is made using handmade lacquers and finished with gold or stainless steel. The back comes padded with crocodile leather and Versace’s iconic Medusa head embossed on it. Hand-assembled in France, the Versace Unique costs $5000 IN 2008.
7. LG G4 Genuine Leather Back cover:
These leather back covers come in two distinct types of textures. Most of the available colors have a relatively stiff and coarse texture to them, but others have a softer, finer texture.
However, both back covers use similar processes, namely vegetable tanning with a coating applied over the tanned full-grain leather to keep the leather stain resistant, which is cut down to 0.45mm thick. The whole process is said to take 12 weeks.
8. The Motorola AURA:
Just take a look at its physical features. It has a 62-carat sapphire crystal lens that is scratch-resistant, 300 dpi resolution that is capable of incorporating a whopping 16 million colors, a rotating blade mechanism that is made of Rockwell 50-55 steel gears, and Swiss-made main bearing, tungsten coated keypad, PVD coated housing, and so much more!
The Motorola AURA also features an onboard memory of 2GB, 2MP camera, hands-free Bluetooth connectivity, H.264 video capturing capability, as well as an open-source browser.
9. VERTU – The main characteristics of Vertu phones – expensive, durable materials, precious stones, and handmade.
If we are talking about designer mobile phone and costliest phone we can not complete this article without “vertu”. The first Vertu phone was presented to the public on 21 January 2002 at the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris. The first Vertu was called the Vertu Signature. Celebrities and the press were invited to the presentation. The company created a furor as a rare publication that avoided the subject of the world’s first luxury phone. Vertu Signature, among other things, received a platinum case and sapphire crystal. The cost was about €24 thousand.
Unlike almost any other mobile phone company, and indeed almost every consumer gadget firm, Vertu has consolidated its entire operation into this one facility comprising almost 500 employees. Everything from assembly, packaging, software installation, design, development, engineering, and administration is carried out at this single facility.
All the above phones were designed by the design firm, and I can tell you after read now you feel jealous if it does not come again, and wish to congratulate them who used and enjoy the marvelous time.

I have taken only a few selected model which was sold in high volume. I won’t hear from you, If you used any one of them which one was your favorite and still you are keeping in your collection.
2021 Mobile Phone style or specifications –
Do you believe all these genuine originated designs in 2020 or 2021?
Because I have seen LG Wing or Samsung Z fold all are based on the old design with new specs and polishing, so who are innovative in the current market, It seems in the third decade of 20 users are more focusing on specification, focusing on hardware rather than looks. I don’t remember in last three years, Have seen any good designed or stylish innovative phone. Also, a big setback for the innovative market when LG closed this part.
After a brief outline of the question, I discuss the role of fashion, design, and then of style, an interconnected theme that has never been satisfactorily addressed in this debate. Then I analyze briefly how social networks and applications have introduced the discourse surrounding fashion and information about fashion to this device WHAT DO YOU SAY?.
