Vertu rises from the dead with a $5,000 smartphone, the Aster P
by Cosmin Vasile / Oct 20, 2018, 3:21 AM
Vertu revealed its new smartphone, the Aster P, and said the device will be available for purchase for at least $4,200. Aster P will be available in seven variations with the Baroque being the cheapest and the Gothic series the most expensive.
The Baroque series Aster P will come in Black, Gentleman Blue, Caramel Brown, and Twilight Orange and, as mentioned earlier, it will cost $4,200. The Gothic series Aster P will be available in Black Jade and White Moon for $5,100, while the Dazzling Gold model is priced at no less than $14,000.
The Aster P is made in the UK from premium mats. Hardware-wise, the smartphone is equipped with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 660 processor, coupled with 6GB RAM and 128 storage. It also sports a 5-inch display with full HD (1080p) resolution, a 12-megapixel rear-facing camera, and a secondary 20-megapixel selfie snapper.
The 3,300 mAh battery feature Quick Charge 3.0 for faster recharge, while calls and messages are protected by V Talk encryption technology. Sadly, it doesn't run Android 9 Pie, but Android 8.1 Oreo should be good enough for those who can afford to buy one.

If they want to go for "Luxury" phone, they should use whatever tech available right now with that price tag.. - 4k screen (with that v cutout, or just hide some screen under that metal bezel, and adjust UI according to that cutout). - Under display FPscanner - 6000mAh + QC 4.0 + fast wireless charging - SD 845, 10GB RAM, 512GB storage - SD slot + dual sim card - IR blaster - Dual front camera (normal + ultra wide) - Triple back camera (normal + ultra wide + telephoto) - 3.5mm jack While this one is like selling Lamborghini branded car with Prius engine, but at 10 times Prius price.

I guess someone is giving another shot or maybe wants to laundry some money through because we all know custom build Iphone like with diamonds and so will out sell it by a large numbers. Personally, custom build Iphones are way better lookers then Vertu phone.

Don't see the point of this phone when you could get the mate 20 Porsche design, red hydrogen titanium edition, or oppo Lamborghini edition which are luxurious and much better than vertu aster p.
