Famous for making phones for a very special group of elite customers, Vertu has just announced its second Android smartphone, the Vertu Constellation. Just like other Vertu offerings, the Constellation comes with a price tag that will leave an average customer wide-eyed. The phone is priced at $6,630 or 4,900 euros, putting the phone right in the middle of the luxurious handsets category.
Vertu Constellation with Sapphire Crystal Display
You probably wonder what such big money will buy you. To begin with, the Constellation sports a 4.3-inch extra durable sapphire crystal display that is close to a diamond in terms of hardiness. The phone’s body is made from grade 5 titanium which is two times stronger than stainless steel.
The back and lower part of the front panel is covered in real calf leather that will be available in a few color options including black, orange, beige, red and more. Of course, the Constellation comes with Vertu’s premium services such as Life, which provides access to private clubs and invite-only events, and Certainty – a security-oriented app.
On the hardware front, the Constellation appears to be your average mid-ranger. The phone’s screen offers only 720p resolution and the device is powered by a 1.7 GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor possibly with Adreno 320 GPU.
The handset runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean is equipped with a 1,800 mAh battery, a 1.3-megapixel front-facing camera and a 13-megapixel main camera with dual LED flash. Other features include 32 GB of internal memory, NFC, Wi-Fi connectivity and Bluetooth 4.0.
