Gold plated Buddha-themed handset

Wrapped in 24 Karat gold plate and covered in detailed etchings relating to Buddhism, this new candy-bar handset features a touch-screen and a microSD slot.

 

The mobile phone, which doesn't have an official name just yet, illustrated here by the Chinese outfit TVGame360, apparently also includes jade buttons and has reportedly been blessed by a monk to ward off evil spirits.

 

When switched on, the boot screen presents a Buddha surrounded by a halo of sunlight and, when the phone's bell rings, apparently the sun halo radiates. Lovely.

 

No price or availability details have been announced yet.
