While the exterior of this device is awesome we couldn’t say that for its innards. In terms of specifications there’s really nothing to be excited about since it is comparable to most of the high-end midrange Android devices out in the market.
What sets this model apart is its craftsmanship which is definitely premium. The capacitive buttons on the front are part of the titanium unibody design of the device. The Gresso logo at the back has been manually polished bringing an attractive texture at the back.
Only 999 pieces of the Radical R1 will be made each with its own individual number etched at the back making it a truly limited edition device.
The company plans to unveil this model at the CES in Las Vegas early next year. The basic model costs $1800 while the variant with a yellow or white gold logo costs an extra $500.
An Italian leather case accessory with shockproof inserts is also available to protect this device and costs $200.
