Handmade in England, Constellation is a modern smartphone from Vertu, the world’s foremost luxury mobile phone manufacturer, that combines all of their expertise in fine materials, craftsmanship, technology and services.
Its sleek, contemporary form has been designed and engineered to appeal equally to male and female customers.
Constellation uses a 5.1 inch piece of sapphire crystal – weighing more than 100 carats – to cover the entire front of the phone and under which sits a 4.3 inch 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 dressed in high quality calf leather, and Vertu has carefully selected the finest hides available from the Alps region in Europe, working with a tannery with more than 150 years’ experience. The device is available in five exquisite colours, namely Cappuccino, Black, Orange, Mocha and Raspberry.
Technically, Vertu Constellation offers everything for the modern smartphone user: an Android™ 4.2 Jelly Bean, Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ dual core 1.7 GHz CPU, 32GB of internal memory, a 13MP rear-facing camera with full HD video (1080p), a front-facing Skype™ compliant 1.3MP camera, as well as Wi-Fi and Bluetooth.
Furthermore, the smartphone features a portfolio of melodic ringtones especially composed for Vertu and performed by the London Symphony Orchestra. All of these tunes benefit from a meticulous approach to mobile audio engineering, resulting in unparalleled acoustic clarity. Constellation also includes uplink noise cancellation software, as well as aptX® support, which guarantees superior playback quality when streaming audio to Bluetooth® headphones or speakers.
The Vertu Constellation smartphone is now available priced from €4,900.
