Luxury brand Vertu is known for producing some crazy-expensive mobile phones, including the $6,600 Constellation and $9,600 Ti. Today the company announced the latest addition to its smartphone lineup, and just as you would expect, this one’s got a price tag that’ll make you do a double take.
The Vertu Signature Touch features a 4.7-inch 1080p display that’s protected by sapphire crystal and titanium casing. The front of the Signature Touch also houses a 2.1-megapixel camera and a speaker that’s got Dolby Digital Plus virtual surround sound. Meanwhile, the backside of the unit is home to a 13-megapixel camera and a back panel made of stitched leather.
Inside of the Signature Touch’s luxurious frame lives a 2.3GHz quad-core Snapdragon processor, 64GB of storage, Qi wireless charging support, NFC and a 2275mAh battery. Connectivity options include WCDMA Bands I, II, IV, V and VII as well as LTE support for the 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 17, 20 and 25 bands.
On the software side of things, the Signature Touch is powered by Android 4.4 KitKat. Vertu has also included several of its own special features, including Vertu Life for personalized information and benefits, Concierge for assistance with obtaining gifts and gaining access to events and Vertu Certainty, a service that offers data protection and customer service.
So how much will you have to shell out for the right to carry Vertu’s new luxury phone? The Signature Touch’s asking price is £6,750, which works out to around $11,300 USD.
The Vertu Signature Touch actually seems like a fairly respectable Android smartphone, packing a 4.7-inch 1080p display and quad-core Snapdragon CPU in a package that’s made of premium materials. The device’s $11,000 price tag means that most folks won’t ever buy a unit, but for those consumers that have some cash to spend and a desire to show that with a super-expensive phone, the Signature Touch is a device that should handle most of what’s thrown at it.
