If there’s one word that the Vertu brand is most associated with, it’s luxury. If there’s a second, it’s expensive. The company creates Android smartphones with premium materials and price tags that can reach as high as $11,000. Today the folks at Vertu introduced their newest Android phone, and as expected, it’s not cheap.
The Vertu Aster starts at £4,200 / $6,900, which’ll get you a calf leather model in black, blue or pink. Stepping up to £5,600 / $9,100 will net you a snake skin model in black or orange, and moving up to £5,900 / $9,700 will get you the top-end variant, which features ostrich skin in brown or purple.
So what kind of device do you get for that kind of cash? Here’s the Vertu Aster’s full spec rundown:
While the Vertu Aster isn’t a bad phone by any means, many folks would likely argue that its specs aren’t worth its price tag. The phone itself isn’t all that you’re paying for when you shell out thousands of dollars for a Vertu, though, as you’re also ponying up for Vertu’s suite of services and its luxury brand.
What do you think of the Vertu Aster? If you had the cash, would you buy one?
