It was just yesterday when we wrote to you about the possibility of an Android smartphone from luxury mobile phones manufacturer Vertu. The source of the rumor was Russian blogger Eldar Murtazin who claims to possess knowledge of Vertu’s jump to the Android train. But new reports today could prove Murtazin’s claim to be true. Blog of Mobile posted an image of what it claims to be an Android-powered Vertu phone called “Ti.” Having a “RM-828V” model number, the purported Vertu Ti will reportedly run Android 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich, will be powered by a 1.5GHz processor, and will support Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC.
It’s also worth noting that the phone was also spotted across sites like GLBenchmark, Bluetooth.org, and as well as telecom regulator databases in Singapore and Macau. Interestingly, Russian retailer SPBLUX has recently posted four models of a Vertu-branded phone called Constellation Ti. There’s a Red Gold Mixed Metal, Titanium Black Alligator, Titanium Black Leather, and a Titanium Black PVD black leather. What is your take on this?
Updated: A Vertu spokesperson has reached out to us saying that the company is unable to confirm any new product details at this time. Interestingly, the spokesperson said that Vertu will be making an official announcement to the global media on the 12th February. It looks like something is coming. Stay tuned for more updates.
