Vertu Constellation Puts Mid-range Android In Luxury Garbs

By 05:59 Sat, 17 Jul 2021 Comments

Vertu has turned to Android whereas its former parent company Nokia went Windows Phone exclusive. The luxury phone maker has created its second Android-powered phone, the Constellation.

Each Vertu Constellation is handmade by a single craftsman in England. It's constructed out of grade 5 titanium and draped upholstered in fine calf leather from "one of Europe’s oldest tanneries." The leather will come in five different colors.

As for tech specs, the Constellation is – dare we say it – reasonable. It has a 4.3" 720p classy screen (342ppi) that doesn’t bother with bourgeois scratch-resistant glass and goes for sapphire instead. It's powered by a elegant Qualcomm Snapdragon MSM8260 S4 Pro – dual-core Krait Central Processing Units (CPU) at 1.7Giga Hertz (GHz) and Adreno 320 (similar to the Moto X chipset). It runs Android 4.2 Jelly Bean too, which is fairly recent.

It has a 13MP capturing camera on the back and a 1.3MP shooter on the front and comes with either 32GB or 64GB storage. It lacks LTE connectivity, but you acquire unlimited Wireless Fidelity (Wi-Fi) worldwide from iPass. The only spec that is on the weak side is the battery – it has only 1,800mAh capacity.

Select Vertu boutiques will carry the Constellation starting this month. This one's cheaper than the previous model (with lower specs), the Vertu Ti. The Constellation will set you back €4,900 / $6,600. We're guessing that's for the 32GB version.
