The National - News - Luxury - - THE DECODER -

This Lux iPhone 6 Plus in white is pro­duced by the United States-based Brikk, a maker of “cou­ture” iPhone prod­ucts.

It is fin­ished in 950 plat­inum and con­tains a 5.5-inch screen, 128GB of mem­ory, and is GSM-un­locked for in­ter­na­tional use. The di­a­monds on the logo are set us­ing a mi­cro­scope in a cus­tom-ma­chined bezel in the shape of the Ap­ple logo.

There are also 24K yel­low gold and 24K pink gold ver­sions, in white or black.

The phone in­cludes a one-year Brikk war­ranty on de­fects and comes in a cus­tom vel­vet-in­te­rior Brikk box along with a cer­tifi­cate of authenticity. Brikk runs on a “profit-for­phi­lan­thropy” model, where a por­tion of the pro­ceeds made on each prod­uct are al­lo­cated to se­lect NGOs.

Each phone is hand-pol­ished, plated and as­sem­bled in the Brikk lab­o­ra­tory in Los An­ge­les. Many of the ma­te­ri­als and pro­cesses used to cre­ate Brikk prod­ucts are more com­monly ap­plied to sci­en­tific pur­poses such as space travel and ex­plo­ration.

The Lux iPhone 6 Plus can be or­dered now from www.brikk.com, with shipping due to be­gin on Oc­to­ber 20.
