Darling Is The Weirdest Phone You’ll See, Comes With 360-Degree Camera And “Diamonds”


Short Bytes: Protruly’s Darling could be one the craziest phones you’ll ever encounter. This phone boasts of a 360-degree camera that makes it the world’s first VR smartphone. Its body is made up of gold and there are 4 diamonds attached to it. While its standard edition will cost around $600, the higher-end model will ship at $1,300.

Just a couple of days ago, I told you about Nokia 3310 Supremo Putin Edition. Thanks to its extravagant gold work, it comes with a 30-times heavier price tag as compared to the regular Nokia 3310. Today, I’m going to tell you about another phone that’s weirder.

World’s first VR smartphone

The Darling smartphone is made by the Shenzhen-based technology company Protruly. The company claims that Darling is the world’s first smartphone that can capture VR video. It comes with a 360-degree camera that records panorama video and phone, which can be used for an immersive viewing experience, reports China Daily.

But, why didn’t any other phone implement this feature yet? Taking a close look at Darling’s design will explain everything. The phone has a large camera protrusion on the front and back side. Phone’s length is also very long due to the 13MP dual fisheye lenses attached to the top bezel.

Darling has gold and diamonds

Just like golden Nokia 3310 Supremo Putin Edition, the Darling is made of 3.08 grams of gold. It also has four diamonds stuck to a leather band.

The technical specifications of the phone are also impressive. It comes with a 5.5-inch full HD screen. It’s powered by a 2.5GHz deca-core Helio X20 CPU, 4GB of RAM, and Android 6.0 Marshmallow. There’s 64GB storage and 3,560 mAh battery to serve all your entertainment needs.

China Daily says that the standard version will cost around $600 and the higher-end model will ship at $1,300.
