If money is no object, this could be the best phone for you

Tech Desk January 25, 2017

British smartphone-maker Vertu has of late announced its latest luxury device which will probably cost you an arm and a leg.

Called the Constellation, the smartphone is handmade using exquisite material such as anodised aluminium, wrapped in soft leather that's specifically sourced from a "family-run" tannery in Italy.

In addition to this the device features a sapphire crystal display and one-button access to Vertu's 24-hour concierge service.

Constellation is the first device from the British manufacturer to have dual sim functionality which the company claims allows it to work on "34 international bands". To top it off the device also has encrypted calls using tech from SilentCircle to cater to the needs of its elite clientele.

Vertu’s new smartphone doesn’t fall short on its internal specs either. It has a 5.5 inch Quad HD display and fingerprint reader the supports NFC for Android Pay. A 12-megapixel rear camera backed by 128GB of internal storage and 3,220mAh battery means the smartphone is well equipped to take and store great pictures and videos.

The luxury-maker, however, hasn’t yet revealed how much its new smartphone would cost though judging from the fact that its earlier Signature Touch phone started at $8,140 you can bet it won't come cheap.
