The Vertu Ti is Vertu’s First Android Phone
Luxury phone maker Vertu has impressed everyone these days by launching the first Android-operated phone of the brand, called the Vertu Ti. Unlike the brand’s tradition so far, the manufacture urgently needed some refreshment, which comes in the shape of the Android operating system and a new smartphone which uses it, in order to keep up with the fashion and technology level at the same time.
The Vertu Ti boasts the 4.0.4 version of the Android operating system, a 1.5 GHz microprocessor, Bluetooth 4.0 connectivity, NFC and an 800 x 480 display. The processing unit will reportedly be a Snapdragon MSM8260 SoC with WCDMA 850/900/1700/2100 radio, while the battery is a pretty common 1250 mAh one. Additionally to the three buttons that characterize the Android technology, the phone still looks like an ordinary Vertu.
The Vertu Ti will reportedly be available in 4 different versions: Titanium Black PVD black leather, Titanium Black Alligator, Titanium Black Leather and Red Gold Mixed Metal. Quite weirdly, instead of the “recent apps” button, the Red Gold Mixed Metal model boasts a search button. The phones will be officially unveiled during February, on the occasion of the Mobile World Congress, priced between $4,000 and $10,000.
