Luxury retailer offers gold iPhone 6 pre-orders for only $8k

Luxury retailer will let you pre-order 128GB iPhone 6 for only $8,000



We’re probably less than two months away from the announcement of the iPhone 6, but if you just can’t wait another minute to tell your fanboy friends that you’ve already pre-ordered the 6, luxury retailer Brikk is ready to accept your pre-orders. But it’s going to set you back at least $4,495.

For those who love giving their Apple gadgets a gold bath, Brikk is already offering pre-orders for its customized LUX iPhone 6 line in 24-carat yellow gold, 24-carat pink gold, platinum, and diamond, with options to keep the Apple logo traditional, or toss 1-carat of perfect white diamonds on top.

Prices start at $4,495 and go all the way up to $8,395.00. You’re required to prop down a $500 deposit just to get into the pre-order program and Lux phones aren’t estimated to ship until 3-4 weeks after the official release of the iPhone 6.

Unfortunately you can’t save a few hundred dollars by dropping the storage down to 8GB. All units are advertised with 128GB, which isn’t necessarily a given feature even though Apple hasn’t bumped up storage since the iPhone 4s in 2011.

The final product from Brikks will probably look different than the renders on their site (obviously) and there’s not 5.5-inch iPhone 6 option, but if you’re cool with just a regular, boring, big screened iPhone 6, Apple’s expected to announce the 4.7-inch version in mid-September.
