Caviar is celebrating the Lunar New Year with specially-adorned Samsung Galaxy S21 Ultra phones. It’s the year of the Ox, which sets the theme for one design that can’t be contained in two dimensions. The other versions have (in Caviar’s own words) a more “restrained design”.
The Galaxy S21 Ultra Gold Ox has a three dimensional bas-relief of an ox head mounted on the back. A 24 carat gold ring runs through its nose and it can pivot freely (so you can use it as the world’s most expensive phone grip). As if that wasn’t enough, two natural diamonds are embedded in the eyes of the ox (3mm in diameter, 3-3 clarity).
Only 21 units will be made of this version, each of them costing just over $20,000.
As for the more restrained versions, the Golden Line has a gold-plated back with a delicate engraving to create an eye-catching texture.
Alternatively, you can get one with automotive carbon fiber or alligator leather (available in black and white). These three versions cost around $6,000, 99 units will be made of each.
And finally, the Golden 21, whose back panel is made out of 18-carat gold. This panel has been engraved with the number 21, celebrating both the year and the Galaxy S21 Ultra itself. Only one such phone will be crafted, so you better sit down before we tell you the price.
No, it’s not $21,000 – it’s actually $77,230.
