Gresso Unveils The Radical Black Edition Luxury Android Smartphones

Gresso is a company known for its luxury smartphones and accessories. Last year the company released its Radical smartphone collection that came in titanium, yellow gold, or white gold with prices ranging from $2000 to $3000. Just recently the company has added a new collection to its lineup which is called the Radical Black collection. There are three luxury smartphones that make up this collection that comes with a rich black PVD-coating and a choice of white gold, yellow gold, or titanium and priced starting at $2500.

The Gresso Radical Black R1, Gresso Radical Black R2, and the Gresso Radical Black R3 are 4.5-inch QHD dual-SIM smartphones running on Android 4.1.2 Jelly Bean. All three devices use a 1.2GHz quad-core CPU, an 8MP main camera, and come with 36GB of internal storage. Their main difference is in the materials being used.

If you notice the description of each of the models their main difference is in the material being used in its logo. The highlight of this Radical Black collection is the use of a black PVD-coating. PVD or Physical Vapor Deposition is a process where solid coating materials are evaporated by heat or ion bombardment and at the same time a reactive gas is introduced. This improves the hardness of the material, makes it more wear resistant, and gives it oxidization resistance.

If you have the money to spare and you are looking for a smartphone that is manufactured in limited quantities then you might be interested in getting the Gresso Radical Black collection.

This makes it withstand extreme mechanical stress and is resistant to compression or bending.

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.
