Concept phone might be too weird even for Vertu

Luxury handset design is a seven-sided wonder.

Vertu is one luxury phone maker that's not afraid to take risks, as evidenced by such creations as its $310,000 "Signature Cobra" handset. But with competition in that space growing all the time, real or fake , it behooves the company to stay on the cutting edge.

That's why designer Christopher Tak Cheung Yue has proposed a phone that takes some new angles--seven of them, to be exact. The seven-sided "Vertu Suave" concept, which BornRich describes as a "classy balance of angular and organic shape," is aimed specifically at female consumers with casings made of gold, titanium, and a sheepskin backing. It's definitely eye-catching, but it somehow looks like the sole of a shoe to us.
