Vertu specializes in creating luxurious smartphones, many of which are adorned with lavish materials, but the Aster Chevron line actually impresses with a rather rare and unexpected technological feat: a 13-megapixel Hasselblad camera. Boasting a wrap-around design that stretches the leather or fabric used to adorn the phone’s body, this product can also be regarded as a fashion accessory.
Even though it’s rather thick for a modern smartphone (11.2mm), the Aster Chevron has some impressive specs, including a quad-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 CPU, which is clocked at 2.3 GHz. It also includes ringtones composed and performed by the London Symphony orchestra, and it provides access to Vertu’s concierge service. It is available in many different versions, namely Pink Chevron, Blue Chevron, Leaf, Orchid Calf, Quilt Black, Caramel Calf, Stingray Black, Quilt Blue and Stingray Blue.
