Luxury brand phones are not too often seen being used by people on the every day subway commute to work, but Vertu's lineup can easily attest to the rarity of their handsets. The latest device to come out of Nokia's fully owned subsidiary, the Vertu Ascent X, isn't decked out in some of the most precious materials we've seen used in the past and opts to be featured as one of their most camera conscious devices to date. Recently approved by the FCC, its specs has been accompanied with a photo that looks to be like other devices we've seen in the past from the luxury maker – it features a 2” QVGA display, aGPS, Bluetooth, a whopping 32GB of internal memory, and a very first to offer a 5-megapixel auto-focus camera with LED flash. It's almost hard to imagine owners of the handset to quickly use up all of that storage – especially when it may not be suitable for the taskers out there that are intent on getting work done with the handset. Nonetheless, global trotters will find this quad-band GSM & UMTS capable handset quite useful wherever they travel. Looking to be more of a phone than a piece of jewelry, we'd suspect it to have a lower price that some of the recent Vertu models we've seen – but there is still no word surrounding its release date.
