Vertu updates its Signature Touch premium smartphone
The smartphone maker Vertu, which is known for making luxurious smartphones, has released a new version of its high-end Signature Touch smartphone. The new handset comes with a Class 5 titanium chassis, a display that is covered by a sapphire glass cover and special leather for the back that users can choose – there are three types of it – cow leather, lizard leather and alligator leather.
The Signature Touch, which is hand-made in Great Britain, offers a 64-bit eight-core Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor on the big.LITTLE architecture (four “slow” Cortex-A53 cores and four “fast” Cortex-A57 cores), Adreno 430 graphics, Cat. 9 LTE and a large 5.2-inch display at Full HD resolution. The device also has 4 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal memory, a microSD card slot for expansion, a 21 MP rear camera with autofocus and a dual-LED flash, a single 2.1 MP camera up front, 802.11ac Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC and a GPS receiver. It’s worth noting that the Signature Touch also has high-quality speakers that provide 3D sound with no distortion at all thanks to the included Dolby Digital Plus technology. The smartphone uses a 3160 mAh battery to power all this hardware and runs Android 5.1 Lollipop. Finally it measures 155 x 74 x 10.8 mm and weighs 225-236 grams.
There’s no information how much the Signature Touch costs but it will be very expensive for sure.
