Vertu has become synonymous with most expensive luxury mobile phones. They have come up with yet another Android device that they have named The Constellation. Their Constellation series has been very popular but the new entrant has not been given a distinctive name. Vertu had launched its first android device earlier this year. Vertu Ti, their first Android device was an unqualified success which has perhaps encouraged them to take up the popular operating system once again. Vertu was created as a subsidiary of Nokia but was divested and sold off to another company in 2012. Vertu is now owned and controlled by European investment firm EQT.
The Back of the Phone is Covered in Colored Calf Skin
The Constellation or the new entrant in the popular series has no bling and has a simple design. The only concession is an extensive use of leather to give it a luxurious feel and look. The new luxury phone has been released in five colors namely Cappuccino, Black, Orange, Mocha and Raspberry. The back of the phone is covered with fine calf skin in colors mentioned earlier. The phone is housed in a titanium case and boasts of a 4.3 inch touch screen made out of 100 carat sapphire crystal glass. The glass is not only very strong but scratch proof which is a positive feature for a touch screen. The screen resolution is 720p.
The Phone Has 13 Megapixel Rear and 1.3mp Front Camera
Vertu’s new phone runs on Android 4.2 (Jelly Bean) and can be upgraded to future versions of Android. The phone is powered by a 1.7 GHz dual-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor. The new phone shares several features of the earlier Vertu Ti. Another highlight of the new Constellation is a 13 megapixel camera with 1080p video recording. It also has a front camera with 1.3 megapixel strength. The phone boasts of 32 GB inbuilt storage capacity for data and applications. It also comes with 3G,Wi-Fi, Bluetooth with aptX, Secure NFC support along with its signature luxury concierge service. The phones priced at 4,900 Euros (Approximately £4,000) will become available worldwide in selected stores from this month itself.
