Antares – a new smartphone for the Techno-Luxury mobile segment

Tonino Lamborghini aims to redefine the luxury mobile segment by launching an advanced smartphone with signature Italian design, premium materials and performance specifications.

The Italian luxury Group has developed a new smartphone for the Techno-Luxury mobile segment by combining the mobile technology platform Android and quad core processor, with its signature Italian craftsmanship and scratch proof Gorilla Glass screen.

The new smartphone features a high-performance quad-core 1.5 GHz processor, 2 GB of RAM, 32 GB of internal memory and a MicroSD card slot with up to 32 GB (included). The sound system is provided by an in-built Yamaha amplifier and speakers. Antares also has a 13-megapixel rear and 5-megapixel front-facing cameras with full HD video (1080p), that produce stunningly clear image of photo and video images. The thickness of the smartphone is 13.5 mm and its four-inch high-resolution display is protected by tempered glass with a high shock and scratch resistance (Gorilla Glass).

Antares uses the Android 4.2 Jelly Bean platform and a complimentary interface designed exclusively for Tonino Lamborghini. The Android operating system will allow the owner to access the full range of Google mobile products and functionality, including millions of apps, games, books and videos contained within Google Play, making Antares the ideal platform for business and pleasure.

“The Antares is in a class by itself, one we refer to as the ‘techno-luxury’ mobile segment. Our new phone marries uncompromising Italian design and premium build quality with the high performance people expect from their most important lifestyle accessory. For 30 years I have been making premium accessories, so today I accept a new challenge: to give my customers a performance smartphone with a stunning design and finish,” said Tonino Lamborghini, President of the brand and coordinator of the Tonino Lamborghini Centro Stile – design centre – in Bologna.

“Antares is designed to match instantly recognizable Italian flair with great performance and stunning materials. Together these qualities speak to our exclusive design heritage, one that communicates the spirit of the ‘Raging Bull’ that adorns our crest. The phone’s body is sculpted from leather and stainless steel creating a vibrant and attractive finish. The beautiful screen is coated with impregnable Gorilla Glass and the chassis is furnished with exquisite leather that comes in several alluring colour schemes for both men and women,” said Gianluca Filippi, CEO of the Tonino Lamborghini Group.

Antares will be released in limited edition, with a unique serial number appearing on the back of every phone. From December this year, Tonino Lamborghini’s smartphone Antares will be available in limited edition from around 4,000 USD.
