Vertu Aster is yet another luxury Android smartphone with nice features
Several months after introducing the Signature Touch, Vertu is now getting ready to launch another luxury smartphone, this time called Vertu Aster. Earlier this week, the Aster was approved by the FCC, as well as by China’s Telecommunication Equipment Certification Center - and that’s how we know about its existence.

Although the Aster looks slightly different than the Signature Touch, its features appear to be identical. The new handset sports a 4.7-inch display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, and offers: LTE connectivity, NFC, 2 MP front-facing camera, 13 MP rear camera, quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon processor, 2 GB of RAM, and 64 GB of internal memory. Just like the Signature Touch, the Vertu Aster seems to be made out of rare materials (including titanium alloy and leather), and is pretty heavy, weighing 195 grams. The new smartphone runs Android 4.4 KitKat with Vertu's own UI customization.

For the moment, we don’t know when, and neither for how much the Vertu Aster will be available (it's not yet listed on Vertu's official website). In any case, since the Signature Touch costs more than $10,000, it’s probably safe to assume that the Aster won’t be cheaper than that. So... any takers?

Making something outrageously expensive for the purpose of it being outrageously expensive. Nothing but an artificially inflated price on a phone that's inferior to top Androids and the new iPhones. It's only purpose is to let the very rich prove that they're very rich (and foolish).

It's expensive because of the services that come bundled with it.

Same back??))) The cows that were masacred for the leather used in Vertu were being taken care of better than your parrents took care of you! )) Samsung on the other hand uses some cheap plastic that looks like leather! Even the box in which Vertu come in is made of better quality than the entire Samsung Galaxy! ))

You would expect a device for that price and materials and finish, they would spend some time in creating an iconpack that suits the phone.
