The Prada and Gucci phones are sooo last season. According to the Korea Herald, Samsung Electronics is teaming up with Italian clothing designer Armani to produce an "Armani phone." An online publication claims a Samsung spokesperson leaked the news, but confirmed nothing is written in stone yet. Here's more:
"Yes, the plans are under consideration by the company," a Samsung spokesman said. "The two companies have not signed a contract yet. The company is going to make a new category called 'IT luxury products' jointly with Armani. The Armani phone will be launched in Europe in October and we plan to expand the brand to other businesses as well."
Of course there's no word on how much an Armani phone would cost, but I assume the price point would fall somewhere near the iPhone and Prada phone, which range from $500 to $600. Because the phone has not officially been revealed all talk is just speculation at this point, but that didn't stop me from dreaming about what the phone might look like if the designers took a little "inspiration" from the iPhone and Aramani cosmetics.
