Vertu's New Signature Touch phone wraps leather around titanium in the name of luxuryMade of leather, titanium and solid sapphire, and with its own concierge service included, the Vertu New Signature Touch is a seriously luxurious Android phone. Andy Hoyle went hands-on.
[MUSIC] If the metal and curving glass of Samsung's Galaxy S6 Edge isn't quite luxurious enough for you, then cast your eyes over Vertu's new Signature Touch. This 5.2 inch Android phone starts at 6,500 pounds, which equates to around $10,000, or 14,000 Australian dollars. That is a lot of money, but you do get a hell of a lot of phone in return. The design is very much the talking point of this phone. It's built up all the combination of titanium metal with various real leathers available for the back. This one's in a black taff leather, but options like crocodiles are also on the phone as well. The angular front is very reminiscent of some of [UNKNOWN] previous phones, although on the back it's got these gull-wing doors that pop open to reveal the microSD card slot, which is a nice touch. It's not just about the design though, as this phone does pack everything you'd expect from a high-end phone. It's a 5.2 inch screen, has got a full HD resolution. Inside, it's packing a Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 processor, and on the back of the phone is a 21 megapixel camera, that's capable of recording 4K video. If you're craving the luxury of titanium, and real leather, and you recently struck oil, then you can pick the Vertu's new Signature Touch up from mid October globally.
