British luxury smartphone manufacturer Vertu has added a new luxyry high-end smartphone to its elite league. The device goes by the name Vertu Constellation and is said to be targeted at the globetrotters who really won’t need to get multiple SIM cards in order to use data services. The Constellation comes with access to iPass, the world’s largest WiFi network.
The Vertu Constellation is also the company’s first dual-SIM smartphone and like the company’s other handsets, it is hand crafted in England using anodized aluminum. The phone also features a unique leather trim for which Vertu’s phones are known. In this case, the leather is said to have been sourced from a specialist, family-run tannery in Italy. There is also a ruby inserted by the side of the phone which offers access to Vertu’s 24-hour reservation services when you need a prompt booking.
Specs wise, the Vertu Constellation features a 5.5-inch (2,560 x 1,440) WQHD AMOLED display that clocks in at an impressive 538 pixels-per-inch. It is powered by a former flagship Qualcomm Snapdragon 820 chipset complemented by an appreciable 4GB of RAM. The handset also comes with an impressive 128GB storage which is expandable via microSD. Under its hood, there is also a generous 3,220mAH battery. The high-end smartphone also come with support for USB Type-C port and wireless charging.
On the camera end, there is a 12-megapixel rear camera sensor with a large 1.55um of individual pixels which is touted to give the Google Pixel series a run for their money. The large pixel size also makes the device a good one for low light use. It also comes with Dolby Digital Plus virtual surround sound and front-facing stereo speakers which are located at the top and bottom of the phone. There is also fingerprint sensor and NFC support on board. In terms of software, the Vertu Constellation runs a customized version of Android 6.0 Marshmallow – a step down from the latest Android 7.0 Nougat.
If you are wondering how much the Vertu Constellation would cost, there is no definite answer to that as of the moment. Vertu is yet to reveal the price tag of the device but we don’t expect anything cheap on the device. It will go on sale in mid-February, though, so we expect the price tag to come out soon. If previous releases are any indication, it can go upwards of $8,000+.
