Smartphones have become an extension of our lives. Most of our work and online lives depend on our smartphones. Earlier, the only feature that the phones provided was communication and at the most checking emails.

However, today, smartphones offer communication, entertainment, productivity and other functions of our lives. The smartphone market is quite expansive and vast, catering to everyone’s needs. Typically, smartphones start from a few hundred dollars for day-to-day activities to millions of dollars for the ultra-rich.

Mostly, these expensive phones are made of precious metals like gold and diamonds, thereby increasing their worth. So, if you are looking for expensive phones to stand out among the crowd, you are at the right place. In this article, we will list the top 3 most expensive phones in the world.

Falcon Supernova iPhone 6 Pink Diamond

Price: $48.5 million


This is the most expensive smartphone in the world, costing a whopping $48.5 million. Launched in 2014, this luxury product is made out of 24-carat gold with a huge pink diamond at the back of the device. Buyers also have the option of platinum or rose gold coating.

Users can also choose the diamond at the back, with a blue diamond costing $32.5 million and an orange diamond at $42.5 million.

The iPhone has been customised by Falcon, a private firm based in New York and specialising in using high-end metals and jewels in the process.
