Nokia’s luxury phones brand Vertu has finally entered the touch screen phone market. Called Vertu Constellation T, the new handset is presented by the Bluetooth SIG as the epitome of luxury elegance in a mobile smartphone.
The Constellation T will feature an 8-megapixel camera with dual LED flash, 32GB of onboard storage, a 3.5-inch 640 x 360 nHD(16:9) AMOLED touchscreen, and will probably run on a variant of Symbian (Anna or Belle) with a heavily-customized Vertu skin. No word on what processor will be powering the phone, but we can expect it to be carrying similar hardware to a high-end Nokia phone.
Constellation T is a dual mode WCDMA penta-band 850 / 900 / 1700 / 1900 / 2100 MHz and GSM quad-band 850 / 900 / 1800 / 1900 phone. The luxurious phone is equipped with a built-in GPS receiver with A-GPS support, as well as Bluetooth version 3.0 and Wi-Fi connectivity. Other highlight of the phone include email support via SMTP, POP3 and IMAP4 email client, music player and FM Radio.
As expected, Vertu Constellation T is made with exquisite materials, including sapphire, diamond and other precious metals and jewelry. Pricing on the Constellation T is as yet unknown, but potential customers should expect the price to be very high, the current top-of-the-line model sells for around $16,500. Launch is expected this month.
