Tonino Lamborghini Mobile, a luxury personal technologies manufacturer, has unveiled the 88 Tauri high-end Android smartphone. Building on a catalogue of luxury accessories ranging from wristwatches and eyewear to jewellery and headphones, 88 Tauri emphasises quality materials in a distinctive package.

“Mobile phones are such personal devices that someone’s choice of smartphone says a lot about them. 88 Tauri is the latest example of applying the Tonino Lamborghini design philosophy to the accessory we all use the most,” said Gianluca Filippi, CEO, Tonino Lamborghini Group. “Uncompromising quality in every detail, down to the stitching, and vibrant color choices help our devices – and users – to stand out from a sea of too-similar phones.”

Sharp geometric lines and colour combinations represent the iconic Tonino Lamborghini style; the Raging Bull logo can be clearly seen on both sides of the phone. 88 Tauri offers black, gold and steel silver variants of its metal panel  and is finished with top-quality leather available in five colours (black, blue, red, orange and brown). Each phone is assembled by hand and receives a unique device number. Only 1,947 pieces of each colorway will be created. This number was chosen to honour the year of birth of the company’s founder, Tonino Lamborghini, whose father created the car company.

“We are proud to present the latest and greatest in our family of luxury smartphones – the 88 Tauri, which combines cutting-edge mobile technology and unique features with the inimitable style and design that was characteristic for our company since its foundation. I am confident that our new flagship phone will open a new chapter in the history of Tonino Lamborghini Mobile and will raise the bar for luxury smartphones higher than ever before,” said Tonino Lamborghini, Founder and President of Tonino Lamborghini Group.

“88 Tauri is the latest example of our successful cooperation with Tonino Lamborgini Mobile, and we are happy to see our premium technology powering the latest in the world of luxury smartphones. The latest Snapdragon 801 processor offers new levels of performance, productivity and power efficiency, allowing a seamless and smooth user experience that helps 88 Tauri stand out in any crowd,” said Raj Talluri, Senior VP, Qualcomm Technologies.
