The 'richer-than-you' accessory every iPhone X buyer secretly wants is here, in solid gold

The overpriced, and mostly unnecessary iPhone X is what happens when the elite stop caring about appearances and start producing products expressly for the rich. Therefore, it only makes sense that, if you're going to have a fuck-you iPhone, you might as well have the fuck-you iPhone case as well. 

 

Meet the iPhone X Elite 24k Gold Edition. Yes, it's covered in actual gold, not just the color. 
 
Offered by London-based Goldgenie, the actual product is an Apple iPhone X (no affiliation with Apple) that is custom-plated in gold, rose gold, or platinum metal. 
 

 

The customized iPhone is presented in cherry oak finished box — just an additional touch of faux premium in case you ever have doubts about your financial sanity in the middle of the night and need a little reassurance in the form of product framing. 

 

But you want to know how much it costs, so let's just get to it: about $3,700, all in, for the 256GB model (£2,797). And if, for some reason, you have the ego necessary to justify buying this, but decide to save a few bucks, you can get the 64GB version for just around $3,570 (about £2697).

Scoff all you want, but a gold-plated iPhone X makes a certain kind of narcissistic sense. After all, the most notable differences between the iPhone 8 and the iPhone X are Face ID and the ability to send Animoji texts using you face. Reality Check: If you don't care about taking selfies, you might as well get an iPhone 8. 
 
So while you quietly judge those willing to pay roughly $1,200 for a smartphone whose main feature is rewarding you for pointing your face at it, somewhere, the unapologetically tacky are already trying to figure out if they prefer their selfie iPhone in gold, or the less gaudy platinum. Fuck you, peasant.
