Luxury smartphone maker vertu is back in game, announces vertu aster p
The luxury smartphone brand Vertu is back again with its new device named Vertu Aster P. The Luxury smartphone maker ran out of the market over a year ago is back to business with its new offering. And rather than making a huge comeback, the company is again sticking with its old business model of making weird smartphones with astoundingly ridiculous price tags.
Coming to the Vertu Aster P which is the upgraded version of the Vertu Aster that was announced shortly before the company went into comatose. While the configuration of the smartphone is similar to any other Android phone out there, the design and the price tag is something that sets it apart.
Designed in England, the Vertu Aster P has a titanium frame which runs along the sides of the smartphone, while the back is made completely out of crocodile and lizard leather. The display is robust and is coated with sapphire crystal glass for better scratch resistance, even though it is reported to be more brittle and more prone to cracking than regular gorilla glass protection. There is no visible fingerprint sensor but in place of the sensor, the Aster P has a ruby concierge button which gives you non-stop access to a personal assistant with a British-level professionalism.
