Vertu TiThe 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’s a dual-core 1.7Ghz CPU, 1GB RAM and 64GB of in-built 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 signgle one of the company’s craftsmen in England. The side key on the left-hand side has an 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.

Pricing starts from €7900 for the most basic trim – Titanium Black Leather and there are three even more expensive editions.
