VERTU MAKES A COMEBACK
Luxury phone manufacturing VERTU has unveiled a new phone the Aster P, after more than a year since the company went into bankruptcy.
The Aster P range continues the brand’s reputation for pairing ostentatious designs with high-end specs. Handmade in England, each phone is built by one craftsman and his signature is engraved on the phone. The Aster P has a grade-5 titanium frame and the display is covered in a single piece of 133-carat sapphire crystal glass. Titanium is twice as strong as steel but weighs much less and sapphire is next to diamond when it comes to hardness.
The back is covered in leather types (crocodile and lizard) and colors, and the ruby red concierge button associated with the brand is still there. The Aster P has dual SIM support (nano only) and both SIM compartments open like gull-wing doors. Under the “door” is the signature of the craftsman that made the particular unit you purchase.
Under the hood the new Aster P is an upper mid-range phone as it has under its hood a Snapdragon 660 processor. There is 6GB of RAM, triple that of the original model; and 128GB of storage, double that of its predecessor.
The screen is a 4.9-inch AMOLED FHD panel. Above it sits a 20MP f/2.2 sensor and on the back is a 12MP camera. The Vertu Aster P runs Android 8.1 Oreo and packs a 3,200mAh battery with support for Quick Charge 3.0. It has a USB-C port, NFC, Bluetooth 5.0, and dual-band Wi-Fi with support for a wide range of LTE bands.
The Vertu Aster P starts from $5000 and this price is only for the hardback version because the Gold version already goes for the $14,000 for having a smartphone with a genuine titanium jewelry with gold accents and crocodile skin lining, while the screen is lined with 133 carat Sapphire glass.
