We all know that Vertu has entered the Android market a while ago. The latest news from the premium smartphone maker is that they’ve recently announced the launch of their second Android phone after TI, the new Vertu Constellation. This new luxurious phone will be priced at €4,900 (about $6,630), which is not too surprising, considering the fact that it’s beautifully made only using the finest materials.
The Constellation takes a small but bold step away from Vertu’s usual design language, as it lacks the iconic ceramic pillow on the earpiece. What it gains instead is the largest piece of tough sapphire glass that Vertu has ever crafted, as well as a layer of soft but durable calf leather wrapping around the Grade 5 titanium body.
It’ll also come in five colors: dark brown, orange, black, light brown and cherry. Commenting on the launch, Massimiliano Pogliani, Vertu CEO said, “You want the full monty, concierge? You go for the Ti. You want a more easy approach, still belong to the group with privileged access, sleekier design, more unisex? You go for the Constellation.”
Coming to the specifications, it has a 4.3-inch 720p display, it runs Android 4.2 on a 1.7GHz dual-core Snapdragon S4 processor, it features a 13MP rear camera, 1.3MP front shooter and 1,800mAh battery. It also has NFC, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and 32GB of built-in storage.
