Some people buy newspapers to remember historical events. Others buy customized Nokia smartphones. As first spotted by TechCrunch, a Russian phone-customization company debuted its latest creation this week: a new Nokia 3310 with embedded, gold-plated portraits of US president Donald Trump and Russian president Vladimir Putin on the back. The phone is meant to commemorate the two world leaders meeting at the G-20 Summit in Hamburg.
The middle button on the device features the G-20 Summit logo, while the phone body is made of tempered titanium. The data and location of the summit is also emblazoned across the back. This device is real and costs 149,000 rubles, or $2,500.
Caviar writes on its website that it purposely chose to display the presidents’ side profiles. They’re looking in the same direction, too, to symbolize “the common desire for progress in US-Russian relations.” Such harmonious phone vibes.
