The limited edition of Apple's iPhone 5s was manufactured by ​​Italian jewelry company Caviar. The back cover of the device is made of 18 carat gold.

The names of most owners of the "Putin smartphones" were not disclosed. It was only said that their list includes an actor, a television presenter, two top-managers of an oil company and a gold medalist of the Sochi Olympics 2014.

Due to incredible demand, the Italian company decided to produce a second batch of the smartphone.
