When it comes to luxury cars, we mention Rolls Royce. But for smartphones, Vertu is the name. If you didn’t know before now, Vertu is a luxury smartphone maker with a knack for releasing very expensive smartphones. The British manufacturer prides in making hand crafted smartphones with choice materials. They have just announced the new Vertu Constellation.
As always, this phone is made from anodized aluminium wrapped in specially sourced soft leather. It comes with an inset ruby that doubles as a shortcut key for a special 24-hour service called “Vertu Concierge”. They say it caters for your every need. I wonder how they plan to pull this off. This is the first dual-SIM phone from Vertu. The company also says it has 34 international bands. Let’s dive into technical features of this phone after the jump.
