Vertu New Signature Touch: solid, elegant and silly expensive, but at least now you get good specs
If you are going to pay $10,000 for a smartphone, you may as well get some good specs on it, right? Well, it seems this is something Vertu didn’t quite understand before, but their newest smartphone brings forth all the power and performance wealthy techies have been hoping for. This new smartphone is called the Vertu New Signature Touch – what does it offer?
For starters, the device packs a 5.2-inch 1080p display, a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal storage, a 21 MP rear camera, a 2.1 MP front-facing shooter and a 3160 mAh battery. It also runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. It even supports Quick Charge 2.0 and Qi wireless charging.
This phone is for those with eccentric taste, something Vertu hasn’t forgotten. It is made with fine leather and grade 5 titanium. The Vertu New Signature Touch also comes in 8 versions: Jet Calf, Garnet Calf, Grape Lizard, Pure Jet Lizard, Jet Alligator, Pure Navy Alligator, Clous de Paris Alligator and Pure Jet Red Gold.
These all feature their own personalized engraving. Not to mention those new elegant cases, which come in two unique designs and multiple colors/materials. One is simply a holster, while the other is a wallet case with credit card slots. If you are wondering where the nanoSIM and microSD cards go, they are hidden behind the “dramatic gull-wings” on the back plate. These phones are truly snazzy!
And of course, what are these fancy phones without their luxurious services? It’s partly what Vertu is selling you, here. Vertu Concierge connects you with a single point of contact who can facilitate travel, accommodation, dining experiences, gift sourcing and even connect you to money-can’t-buy events. Vertu LIFE grants you exclusive privileges and unrestricted access to elite events. Meanwhile, Vertu CERTAINTY offers encrypted communications and Vertu Lost Phone can help you remotely lock, wipe find and ring your device.
Now, the real question is: how many of you are willing to pay about $10,000 for one of these?
