Vertu Revolution. Constellation Launch

Just a few days ago, Vertu launched the new Vertu Constellation smartphone. We all know this Vertu phone from it's whopping price tag but there's more to it that that. Vertu phones are handmade in England with combined premium materials. It has amazing craftsmanship and technology. Just by the look of it, the phone is designed and engineered to appeal equally to male and female customers.


Elegantly designed and visually appealing, the VERTU sure does turn eyes. It embodies everything that the brand has become renowned for – tactile materials, outstanding engineering and craftsmanship and modern technology.

Vertu Constellation costs around P 300,000 to P 400,000. I forgot the exact price as when I heard the word hundre thousand I blacked out.


Now if you are wondering about the specs of the phone. Vertu Constellation uses a 5.1 inch piece – weighing more than 100 carats – to cover the entire front of the phone and under which sits a 4.3 inch 720p high definition screen. The sapphire is resistant to scratching from anything other than diamond, ensuring that the screen remains virtually flawless throughout the life of the phone.

Surrounding the sapphire crystal is an engineered grade 5 titanium casing, a material two and a half times stronger than stainless steel yet only half the weight. It is the durability and lightweight nature of grade 5 titanium, coupled with its immaculate finish once polished, that makes it a perfect material for Vertu handsets.


Constellation is swathed in high quality calf leather. Vertu has carefully selected the finest hides available from the Alps region of Europe, working with a tannery with more than 150 years’ experience. Constellation will launch in five exquisite colours that make stunning use of the single piece of leather used - Cappuccino, Black, Orange, Mocha and Raspberry.


Technically, Vertu Constellation offers everything for the modern smartphone user: Android™ 4.2 Jelly Bean, Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ dual core 1.7 GHz CPU, 32GB of internal memory, 13MP rear-facing camera with full HD video (1080p), a front-facing Skype™ compliant 1.3MP camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC.

Constellation also features a portfolio of melodic ringtones especially composed for Vertu and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. The portfolio also includes a set featuring English bird song. All of these ringtones benefit from Vertu engineers’ meticulous approach to mobile audio engineering, resulting in unparalleled acoustic clarity. Constellation also features uplink noise cancellation software, as well as aptX® support, which guarantees superior playback quality when streaming audio to Bluetooth® headphones or speakers.
