This limited edition Evangelion phone is inspired by a cyborg character that's piloted by the main hero in a famous Japanese anime television show. Quite beloved, 'Neon Genesis Evangelion' has an intriguing plot line about "chosen" children that fight alien war machines.

The Evangelion phone was made in a batch of just 30,000 to be sold at 7-Elevens across Japan for the equivalent of $705. With the wide popularity of anime character products, they are expected to sell-out quickly.

The phone's design has a white image of the main cyborg, Unit 01, with a metallic purple and green background and orange accents on the volume and power buttons. To finish the robotic-like smartphone off, there is a matching case that mimics the armor of the cyborg character.
