Vertu Aster Chevron is one of the cheapest Vertu smartphones to date (but still costs a lot)
Nor long after changing owners, Luxury phone maker Vertu announced a new collection of handsets dubbed Aster Chevron. 

Following in the footsteps of the original Aster series that was released over 1 year ago, the Aster Chevron collection includes similarly designed smartphones, though these come with " a distinctive canvas" rear (made of "highly resilient Italian fabric", to be precise), and are available in three color versions: black, blue, and pink. The design of the new phones is completed by grade 5 Titanium, which obviously makes them very durable.

Like many other luxury phones, the Vertu Aster Chevron doesn't offer top of the line specs. In fact, it looks like it's identical, from this point of view, to the original Aster, thus being powered by the relatively old quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, and sporting a 4.7-inch 1080p screen protected by sapphire crystal. The handset runs Android 5.1 Lollipop, further featuring stereo speakers, a 13 MP Hasselblad rear camera, 2 GB of RAM, 64 GB of internal memory, and a 2275 mAh battery (with wireless charging support).

While the Vertu Aster Chevron phones are cheaper than previous Aster models, they're still very expensive (at least for regular smartphone users), each costing $4,200. All three versions of the new handset can be ordered from Vertu's official website via the source link below. 

The Aster Chevron is available in the US, and is compatible with AT&T and T-Mobile, but it lacks support for American LTE networks. So, any buyers here?

P.S.: In case you didn't know, Vertu was originally founded by Nokia, which still retains a 10% share in the company.
