The Vertu Ti is the first truly new phone model Vertu has to present after they parted ways with Nokia. It’s also their first Android smartphone.
And Vertu has done a nice job in making sure the specs are as up-to-date as possible. There is a dual-core 1.7Ghz CPU, 1GB RAM and 64GB of built-in storage. It’s got an 8MP camera capable of recording 1080p video plus a 1.3MP front camera. Software-wise, it makes use of Android 4.0 ICS with a custom UI.
At 3.7-inches the WVGA display on the front is not as big as on the recent super-phones but Vertu claims these are the biggest sapphire crystal glass panels they’ve built. The body is made out of Grade 5 titanium, and there is a set of stereo speakers, tuned in collaboration with Bang&Olufsen.
The body of the phone consists of 184 individual parts and each unit has been built by a single one of the company’s craftsmen in England. The side key on the left-hand side has a V-shaped in-set ruby to highlight the brand’s traditional design language.
The company is keen on touting the rigidity of their new smartphone and claims it’s got a body that’s 5 times stronger than the competition and a screen that’s 4 times harder to scratch
