Vertu, the world’s leading provider of luxury mobile phones, has launched VERTU TI in Malaysia. Said to be their fastest smartphone ever, it’s based around a titanium case that has been used for its strength, elegance, and low weight.
A class of luxury on its own, the VERTU TI also uses leather accents as well as the largest sapphire crystals screen ever engineered at 3.7 inches. Yes, all 3.7 inches of virtually scratch proof-ness that has been tested to be four times stronger than other smartphones in terms of impact and resistance.
The VERTU TI is powered by Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich OS), backed by a 1.7 GHz processor, coupled with an 8MP rear camera with auto focus and twin LED flash and a 1.3MP front facing Skype compliant camera. It’s also packed with a 64GB internal memory and secure near field communication (NFC) technology.
Interestingly, each VERTU TI is handmade in England by a single craftsman at Vertu’s state-of-the-art HQ in Hampshire.
It is then signed by that craftsman on completion of rigorous testing and detailing process before being shipped to buyers via one of over 500 stores around the world.
A class of its own? We think so. Of course, smartphones like the VERTU TI comes with a hefty price tag. The variants and pricing of the new VERTU TI are as follows:
- Titanium Black Leather – RM34,500
- Titanium Pure Black – RM41,200
- Black PVD Titanium Red Gold Mixed Metals – RM73,000
