Boasting a "high gloss" design, the phone offers an "easy to grip real leather covering and chrome metal in-lays".

There's also Philips' XHD sound technology, with the claim of clear conversations and a built-in speakerphone.

The ID9651B single handset version is available now for an approximate selling price of £149.
