This weird phone's got a 360-degree camera built right in

Billed as the world's first "VR mobile phone", the Darling and its built-in 360-degree "VR" camera is the type of phone you'll only find from some obscure Shenzhen-based company you've never heard of before. Weird doesn't even begin to describe the Protruly Darling. Everything about the Protruly Darling is just bizarre and it's apparent the very second you hold it in your hand
The phone's unusually long because of the dual 13-megapixel fisheye lenses connected to the phone's top bezel.
The champagne gold metal body is apparently made of 3.08 grams "pure gold", according to the company. And there are four diamonds (of no specified carats) affixed to what the company claims is "full-grain leather from Italy." The design is the kind of hideousness only Vertu would be able to make decent.
The 5.5-inch full HD resolution (1,920 x 1,080) screen is as standard as it gets. It's not Super AMOLED great, but it's not total garbage like on budget phones.On top of the two fisheye lenses, the phone's also got a regular 13-megapixel camera on the back and an 8-megapixel selfie camera.
Under the hood, you'll find a skinned version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow powered by a 2.5GHz deca-core Helio X20 MT6797 processor and 4GB of RAM. The Darling comes with 64GB of internal storage and a huge 3,560 mAh battery that other Android phones could only dream of. And of course, you've got your headphone jack, USB-C and fingerprint sensor embedded into the home button below the screen.
