Vertu is not a company that usually releases new phones every other month because its products aren’t meant for the regular market. The British luxury company unveiled its Signature Touch smartphone a couple of months back but it has now released another Android-based masterpiece named Vertu Aster.
When it comes to specs, Vertu certainly does not disappoint. The phone’s display flaunts a resolution of 1080 x 1920 pixels and measures 4.7 inches, and that’s not even the best part. The Android 4.4.2 KitKat operating system flaunts a customized UI and is animated by a powerful quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon processor, while the 2 GB of RAM memory and 64 GB of internal memory stand ready to meet modern requirements regarding storage. The Signature Touch is just 11mm thick and weighs no more than 6.8 oz, all thanks to a sturdy yet lightweight titanium chassis and a leather-wrapped back plate. Other highlights include a 13 MP rear camera, a 2 MP front camera, NFC and LTE connectivity.
This being a luxury phone, even its five color options have pretentious names, such as “caviar” and “cognac”. The basic (yet not cheap) version is dressed in calf leather and costs about $6,750, while the exotic leather versions will set you back $9,500.
