Caviar is a Russian phone customization company and you might have heard of their unique designs that, so far, have included a Putin phone embedded with 190 rubies and an iPhone X phone dubbed ‘Tesla’, which features gold detailing and a solar panel.
The company is at it again but this time they’ve pimped up a Nokia 6500. If the name doesn’t ring a bell, the Nokia 6500 is a relic from the dark times of 2007 and normally looks like this:
The device went through a complete makeover and has been renamed the Viking Ragnar.
It now features a polished titanium body, a Gorilla Glass screen and pieces of carbon and titanium on the back, alongside a touch of crocodile leather.
Beneath all the glam, the Nokia 6500 is still the same phone it was back in 2007: it features a 2.4 inch color screen, a 2MP camera with a dual LED flash on the back.
It has 1GB of internal memory, 32GB of RAM and a 830mAh battery. Considering there’s only so much you can do on this phone, you can expect the battery to last you a long time, so leaving aside the crocodile leather and everything else, one thing the phone has going for it is prolonged use, at least for talking and messaging.
Caviar wanted the phone to look like a Viking sword and exude the manliness we normally associate with the Viking warriors, so if you think you’re worthy, the Viking Ragnar handset will cost you no less than $2,600.
