    New Caviar Custom iPhone X costs more than 4,000 dollars.jpg

    If you’ve been thinking about buying an iPhone X and find yourself having the odd $4,500 to spare, then why not treat yourself to Russian accessory maker Caviar’s newest custom iPhone X, the ‘Tesla.’ According to 9to5 Mac, the phone features an integrated solar panel and secondary battery, along with a design makeover. Apparently, the customised phone is not related to the actual Tesla brand in any way other than being inspired by it.

    The custom casing has gold detailing and a fixed solar panel, which increases its weight from the usual 170g to 260g and its thickness from 7.7 mm to 16.2 mm.

    Aside from the shock-resistant solar panel, the custom carbon-fiber casing also features 999 standard gilding.

    Caviar was apparently only going to produce 99 of the custom ‘Tesla’ iPhone X units in total, but due to unprecedented demand that initial number has increased to 999. The first unit will be given to Elon Musk, presumably to thank him for letting them use the name!

    And if all that sounds like the sort of iPhone X you might want to treat yourself to, then be prepared to hand over $4,587 for the 64GB version and $4,829 for the 256GB version.

    That would probably block both wireless charging as well as Apple Pay.
