Everyone’s aware of the advances in tech.There are rich nerds too who want latest in tech with the ultimate in luxury. Vertu’s latest smartphone, which it simply calls New Signature Touch, is the perfect blend of both luxury and tech. The ones who are familiar with Vertu already know every phone it makes is handcrafted and is unique. There are eight different variants to choose from, each with something unique. You can even customize your Vertu New Signature Touch.

This Vertu is full of craftsmanship. It has ‘Gull Wing’ doors for its SIM and microSD holders, for example. But with all these bling Vertu’s phone weighs 226gms. Who cares when you got a Merc to drive you around.

New Signature Touch is mighty as well with flagship specs. It has a Snapdragon 810 processor and 4GB RAM, the configuration commonly found in 2015 flagships. Its 5.2 inch FullHD display is protected by the sapphire glass. New Signature Touch has support for almost all networks across the globe which make it a globetrotter. There’s a 3,160 mAh battery too with Qi wireless charging and Quick Charge 2.0.

It’s a complete multi-media package, too. There’s a 21MP camera with Phase Detection AF and dual tone LED flash. It is supported by Vertu’s custom ISP (Image Signal Procesor) and can record 4K Ultra HD videos. It also boasts high-fidelity, front facing stereo loudspeakers with Dolby Digital Plus. 

It will run on Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box. Vertu will also be offering its revamped services which include Dedicated Concierge, Vertu LIFE and Vertu CERTAINTY.

Now the most interesting part – price. Vertu hasn’t disclosed it, and it’ll be available only on request. But from what I hear, it will be well above INR 750,00 Lakh or $11,518 at current conversion rates. Rich or not, you ain’t worried about the price, right? It will be available for pick-up Onctober 16 onwards.
