Vertu is a name that has existed for many years when the company filed for bankruptcy about a year ago. The problem for Vertu is that it was a mass of wealthy individuals who could throw $ 10,000 on a smartphone with often mediocre specifications. and that is a very small market. Vertu is back with a smartphone that's much cheaper than his previous deals, the Vertu Aster P.
This device is currently being pre-ordered in China for 35,800 Chinese yuan, which works well for a conversion of just over $ 5,100, with a shipping date of October 30th. That's a lot of money a world in which people complain about an iPhone sold for over $ 1
The frame of the Aster is made of grade 5 titanium, and the display does not use something as plebetic as gorilla glass as a cover; The Aster P uses a single piece of 133ct sapphire crystal. The combination of a titanium frame and a huge sapphire crystal should mean impressive durability and scratch resistance; Sapphire is close to the hardness of the diamonds. The parts of the phone that are touched are covered with exotic leather, including crocodile and lizard skin, and are offered in different colors. Because this device targets the wealthy, it has a red concierge button that connects you directly to your butler.
Aster P believes the wealthy buyer will be a global traveler, supporting dual nano SIMs under smooth gull-wing doors on the back of the device; Under the door is the signature of the craftsman who built the smartphone. The hardware is fixed in the middle range with a Snapdragon 660 processor, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of memory. The screen is a 4.9-inch AMOLED FHD panel, and the front camera has a 20MP f / 2.2 sensor with 12MP rear packaging.
Vertu uses Android 8.1 Oreo as its operating system and the battery is a 3,200 mAh unit that supports Quick Charge 3.0. Charging is via a USB-C port and features such as NFC, Bluetooth 5.0 and dual-band Wi-Fi are integrated. The color options include Black, White, and Dazzling Gold. The Dazzling Gold version has a much higher price, which is about $ 14,000. If you want something even fancier, Vertu lets you customize your device with gems or designs of your choice.
