Constellation is a modern smartphone that combines all of Vertu’s expertise in fine materials, craftsmanship, technology and services. Its sleek, contemporary form has been designed and engineered to appeal equally to male and female customers.

Constellation uses a 5.1inch sapphire crystal, weighing more than 100 carats, to cover the entire front of the phone and under which sits a 4.3inch 720p high definition screen. The sapphire is resistant to scratching from anything other than diamond, ensuring that the screen remains virtually flawless throughout the life of the phone.

Surrounding the sapphire crystal is an engineered grade 5 titanium casing – a material two and a half times stronger than stainless steel yet only half the weight. It is the durability and lightweight nature of grade 5 titanium, coupled with its immaculate finish once polished, that makes it a perfect material for Vertu handsets.

Constellation is swathed in high quality calf leather. Vertu has carefully selected the finest hides available from the Alps region of Europe, working with a tannery with more than 150 years of experience. Constellation comes in five exquisite colours that make stunning use of the single piece of leather used – Cappuccino, Black, Orange, Mocha and Raspberry.

Technically, Vertu Constellation offers everything for the modern smartphone user: AndroidTM 4.2 Jelly Bean, Qualcomm® SnapdragonTM dual core 1.7 GHz CPU, 32GB of internal memory, 13MP rear-facing camera with full HD video (1080p), a front-facing SkypeTM compliant 1.3MP camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth and NFC.

Alongside Constellation’s comprehensive technical offering, sits Vertu’s range of exclusive services, grouped as Vertu LIFE and Vertu CERTAINTY.

Based around a titanium case that has been used for its strength, elegance and low weight, VERTU Ti also uses leather accents, as well as the largest sapphire crystal screen ever engineered at 3.7 inches. The sapphire crystal renders the screen virtually scratch proof and it is tested to be four times stronger than other smart phones in terms of impact resistance.

VERTU Ti’s titanium case is around five times stronger than other smart phones, deforming less than 1mm when a 500NM force is applied. The result is a phone that feels solid and beautifully crafted in the hand while offering unrivalled durability.

VERTU Ti combines distinctive Vertu design cues, such as the ceramic pillow and exposed watch screws, with a clean overall aesthetic, the result of which is a product that conveys a timeless elegance.

VERTU Ti is powered by Android 4.0, Ice Cream Sandwich operating system, which in combination with the devices 1.7 GHz processor makes for an intuitive, highly reactive and enjoyable experience. Other features include an 8MP rear camera with auto focus and twin LED flash, a 1.3MP front facing Skype compliant camera, 64GB internal memory and secure near field communication technology.

Another example of Vertu’s continued commitment to superior craftsmanship and engineering is VERTU Ti’s audio ability. Its 11x15mm rectangular drivers are acoustically integrated into the chassis to maximise frequency response and level. The result is an unrivalled symphonic sound from the phone’s own stereo speakers.

A new feature of VERTU Ti is the Vertu key, which provides instant access to a curated world of benefits and services available via a global team of professionals available to customers wherever they may be, 24-hours a day, 7-days a week.
