How much can some expensive smartphones cost? The correct answer would be millions of dollars.
Phone manufacturers can reach any extent to include specifications on their products to make them costlier, even if the included features have nothing to do with the device functionality.
Customizing the phones’ body by adding precious metals and jewels can lead their values to skyrocket. We can say that the hefty amount paid while purchasing such expensive phones isn’t for the phone itself, but for the bejeweled bezels they come in.
