New Nokia-built Vertu phone to finally come packing high-end specs?

Same materials used on my 8800 Arte Sapphire
But Vertu phones look ugly and big huge thick

When did Apple and Samsung ever claim they invented a gold smartphone? Please quote the article.

Also Vertu has been using sapphire glass for years, which Apple is rumored to be using for the iPhone 6, and Apple fans will probably claim Apple was the first

What has this anything to do whatsoever with the gold phones ? Read the article.

Well, to be fair, Apple DID invent the iPhone, so...

Not totally true.
Nokia still owns a 10% stake in the company.
However, on point, Nokia still designs and builds these phones for the company as a whole.
So, you can (right at this very moment) buy a Nokia designed and built device running full Android. That phone, however, will cost most if us an arm, leg, and first-born child.

Do Vertu still belong to Nokia? Last I heard they are now owned by a holding company that is run by a bunch of multimillionaires and billionaires.

Its owned by JZ and Zille. Juju's overall isn't the right colour to own this phone. Oh, all the americans and englishmen no need to coment. this a south african thing

Nokia still owns 10% of the Vertu company.
