Vertu's second crack at releasing a well-spec'd deluxe phone is now official and it's actually a second generation of last year's Signature Touch. Dubbed the New Signature Touch, the phones doesn't skimp it in the specs department. It is equipped with a Snapdragon 810 chipset, 4GB of RAM, and a 21MP rear camera with a custom image signal processor that shoots 4K videos. Out of the box, you get 64GB of native storage and a microSD card slot, 3,160mAh battery with wireless and quick charging, as well as stereo Dolby Digital Plus-compliant speakers at the front. At the front, we find a 5.2-inch 1080p LCD display that is covered with "5th-generation sapphire crystal". The New Signature Touch runs on Android 5.1 and has a wide selection of supported LTE bands as well as global Wi-Fi access courtesy of iPass.

Current AMOLED screens differ in such a way that they can exhibit much more saturated colors (sometimes too much) and incredibly high contrast levels, which is due to black color being completely black in AMOLED displays.
