A new luxury smartphone from Vertu.
5 December 2018
As expected, the manufacturer of luxury phones and smartphones Vertu introduced in China today a new smartphone after a long break.
The smartphone can not be counted among the flagships in their characteristics, rather, it refers to the average level. At the same time, it is decorated with premium materials, including a titanium frame and leather on the back panel. Traditionally, the assembly is carried out in the UK manually. Vertu Aster P is available for pre-order in the Chinese online store JD.com at a price of 5 to 14 thousand dollars, depending on the finish option.
Vertu Aster P is equipped with a 4.9-inch AMOLED-display with a resolution of Full HD (1920 x 1080 pixels), 12-megapixel main and 20-megapixel front cameras, battery 3200 mAh. The hardware is based on the Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, 6 GB of RAM and 128 GB of internal flash memory. Supports two-way Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 5.0, NFC and two SIM cards. Slots for SIM-cards are covered with wing-covers, on the reverse side of which are engraved the signature of the person who assembled this unit.
Recall, initially the British company Vertu was a daughter of Nokia and was engaged in the production of luxury phones that were assembled by hand. In recent years, Vertu has been doing very badly, changing hands several times. In 2017, it closed production facilities in Britain and went bankrupt. Now Vertu trademark belongs to the Turkish company Baferton.
Baferton based in Cyprus belongs to the scandalous Turkish billionaire Hakan Uzan. He once sued Nokia and was even sentenced to prison for fraud. However, then everything turned out, Uzana was not planted.
