Samsung Galaxy Note 9 Caviar Gold Edition
Samsung recently unveiled its latest flagship dubbed the Samsung Galaxy Note 9. The device is kept at an asking price of $999. Many would call this a pretty hefty price tag, but the Russian-based luxury smartphone company Caviar has a different definition of pricy altogether.
Caviar has recently launched a new all-gold variant of the Galaxy Note 9 which is embedded with 1kg of pure gold at the back. Yeah! you heard it right. 1KG of pure gold.
Vivo is reportedly going to launch the Vivo X23on August 20. The launch date has come as a surprise as we do not know much about the device yet and Vivo itself has not done any sort of promotion for the device whatsoever. As the leaked specifications suggest, the Vivo X23 is going to be a premium smartphone and it is highly unlikely that the company would unveil it without creating at least a little bit of hype. Take the upcoming Vivo V11 Pro for an example. The company has already sent out promotional posters for the launch which is scheduled for September 6.

Now, the company is looking forward to capitalizing the success the Realme 1 has received and is all set to launch its successor, the Oppo Realme 2.
