VERTU LAUNCHES SIGNATURE TOUCH THE HANDMADE HIGH-PERFORMANCE SMARTPHONE
Vertu, the English luxury mobile phone manufacturer, launches its new high-performance smartphone model – Signature Touch. To create this pinnacle smartphone, Vertu perfectly combines finest luxury materials, leading technology and unique services. To top it all, Vertu incorporates the full breadth of the company’s expertise, including sound tuned in collaboration with B&O, a Dolby® Digital Plus virtual surround sound and Hasselblad certified imaging, as well as Vertu’s full portfolio of services.
First class design
While creating a much slimmer, cleaner and contemporary device, Signature Touch respects also the familiar elements of the Vertu design language. Incorporating dynamic elements alongside the company’s trademark ceramic pillow, Signature Touch supports the iconic status of the brand.
The strong, masculine style of the handset is highlighted through the use of a grade 5 titanium casing that uses both brushed and polished finishes to accentuate its slimline profile.
Using sapphire for luxury mobile phones since the late 90s, Vertu has become the foremost expert in sapphire crystal screen technology for mobile devices. Impervious to anything less than diamond, solid sapphire crystal is strong, highly scratch resistant and optically perfect.
Thanks to more than a decade’s experience of growing, cutting, polishing and bonding, Signature Touch boasts an outstanding 4.7” high definition screen protected by a 5th generation, 118 carat, 5.1 inch piece of solid sapphire crystal. Layered over the phone’s 4.7 inch HD display, the sapphire crystal screen has been manufactured to reduce reflection with a multi-layer coating.
Vertu’s Creative Director, Ignacio Germade, said, “The extraordinary nature of Signature Touch is reflected in its design, which has a classic elegance to it that is recognisably Vertu but with a modern and confident approach. It is consciously masculine, a style enhanced by the beautifully finished titanium and hand crafted leather. We have introduced an exquisite colour palette which includes Claret, Seaspray, Damson, Navy and Jet Black making the range even more attractive.”
Regarded as as powerful modern smartphone that packs an array of features into its slim profile, Signature Touch boasts the latest software and components to deliver outstanding performance.
Tuned in collaboration with B&O, the acoustics feature Dolby Digital Plus virtual surround sound processing and stereo speakers. This symphony of sound is matched with a full HD 473dpi display, the highest definition available for a 4.7 Inch screen. Call quality is assured via noise cancelling uplink and downlink and the Qualcomm® Snapdragon™ 2.3GHz Quad-core processor delivers stunning speed.
With imaging such an integral part of the smartphone experience, Vertu has worked with Hasselblad, the world’s most renowned professional photography brand, to perfect the image tuning of the camera onboard Signature Touch.
Alongside the sterling performance of the audio and imaging, Signature Touch features a perfect world service, global Wi-Fi access supplied by iPass, wireless charging, NFC and the latest Google Android™ 4.4 (KitKat) software.
