It was not too long ago last month that whispers were making their rounds concerning an upcoming Vertu handset that will deliver high end hardware specifications without forgetting about its signature features, where that would include luxurious indulgence of every kind. Without further delay, ladies and gentlemen, might we present you with the Vertu Signature Touch.
The Vertu Signature Touch will be similar in nature to all of the other Vertu devices of recent memory, where it is a beauty to behold if you are into understated and yet elegant design. The Vertu Signature Touch does not fall short in terms of luxury, as it is made out of Grade 5 titanium alloy, with part of the back cover being made out of calf leather. As for its display, it is tougher than you think, thanks to a layer of sapphire crystal which is touted to be a whole lot tougher (and of course, costlier) compared to Gorilla Glass technology used in lesser handsets.
Vertu also claims that all Signature Touch smartphones were handcrafted “in England by a single craftsman”, who so happens to sign the SIM holder of the individual unit that he finishes to boot. Talk about a really, really premium handset! Other confirmed hardware specifications of the Vertu Signature Touch would include a 4.7” Full HD display with a pixel density of 473 pixels per inch, a 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 SoC, 2GB RAM, a 13MP shooter that has been tuned by Hasselblad, 64GB of internal memory, Android 4.4 KitKat as the operating system of choice alongside Qi wireless charging support.
But that’s not all, folks. The Signature Touch has something else to charm us and audiophiles Not only that, Vertu claims that the Signature Touch will also be a treat for audiophiles, thanks to its Bang & Olufsen-tuned stereo speakers. The asking price? Approximately £6,750 a pop.
