Vertu rises from the dead with a $5,000 smartphone, the Aster P
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.
