A Swarovski diamond-studded Samsung Galaxy S3 has gone on sale.
If it's good enough for Apple, it's good enough for Samsung. Hot on the heels of the launch of the world's first 24-karat gold-plated iPhone 5 comes the first Samsung Galaxy S3 Swarovski Edition.
Created by Amosu Couture, each handset features 500 Swaroski diamonds inlaid in its bezel and a further 16 Swarovski Crystallized elements in its home key. For added protection, each phone comes in a calf leather case to ensure its safekeeping.
Despite its recent disagreements with Apple, praise for the Samsung Galaxy S3 has been universally positive with many tech writers declaring it one of the best smartphones available, even if it doesn't run the latest version of Android.
The Amosu Couture Samsung Galaxy S3 is available to order now, for 2,099 pounds (about US$3,400).
