Vertu Aster Has Been Approved By the FCC
Vertu has introduced the Signature Touch and it is getting ready to provide us with yet another luxury device. The Vertu Aster has recently approved by FCC’s internal system and its presence has also been confirmed by the certification center in China. Visually, the Aster looks a bit like the Signature Touch, but the features are mostly identical.
The handset comes with a 4.7-inch Full HD display, 2.3GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 13Mp rear-facing camera, 2Mp front-facing camera and 64GB of onboard storage. Like the earlier Signature Touch, it is quite likely that the Aster will include a number of premium materials, such as leather and titanium alloy. At 195 grams, the Aster Vertu is actually quite heavy. The phone will run customized user interface on top of Android 4.4 operating system.
The Signature Touch is available for more than $10,000; so the Vertu Aster should be comparably expensive. This shouldn’t be surprising because, Vertu smartphones are known for their impressive build quality and materials. The Vertu UI includes a dedicated concierge and access to multiple services, like Vertu Certainty and Vertu Life. It is also possible that the audio quality will be based on Band & Olufsen’s technology as well as Dolby Digital Plus standard.
