IPhone 12 will be entitled to a series celebrating Elon Musk and his company SpaceX. Behind this strange idea is Caviar.
The iPhone 12 series isn't official yet, but that doesn't stop it from getting a lot of talk. Besides rumors and leaks, some information comes from official sources. Today we learn that the 12e iteration of iOS smartphones will be entitled to a limited edition in tribute to Elon Musk and SpaceX.
Known as a pioneer of space exploration, the young American billionaire will therefore be entitled to a special edition of the next Apple flagship. With this iPhone 12 like no other, Caviar promises us to become a "space shuttle crew member".
The titanium back panel of the product features the "Musk Be on Mars" inscription along with a circle that houses a small piece of the Dragon capsule. The signature of the boss of SpaceX is also engraved there.
A luxury smartphone
Caviar, the company that unveiled this special edition iPhone 12, is not its first try at iPhone personalization. It regularly launches smartphones paying homage to very specific subjects. In 2018, for example, the company unveiled an iPhone X bearing the effigy of Vladimir Putin. A reason that did not really surprise us given that Caviar itself is of Russian nationality.
As for the iPhone 12 in honor of Elon Musk, it will retail for around $ 6,000 and will only be available in 19 copies. Like the previous terminals that came out of the Caviar workshops, this is therefore a device designed above all for wealthy customers. In case you're interested, know that the device is already available for pre-order on the company website.
An image of the Dragon capsule
"SpaceX's mission is of unprecedented magnitude, it is the cornerstone of the colonization of the solar system", Caviar explained.
Images shared by the company show gray and black aircraft also featuring an image of the Dragon ship taking off into space on their backs.
This space capsule is famous for taking NASA astronauts Doug Hurley and Bob Behnken to the International Space Station (ISS) last May. A mission that marked the history of space travel as it was the first time that a private company had transported astronauts into space.
