Luxury (and we mean luxury) smartphone maker Vertu has announced a refreshed version of its Signature Touch smartphone, bringing a sizable bump in specs to the fore.
Vertu's latest Signature Touch packs in some notably high-end specs — something you'd expect when you're paying thousands of dollars for a phone. The phone runs Android 5.1 Lollipop out of the box, and packs a Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage with an additional 64GB of storage from an included microSD card. The phone's sapphire display is also kicked up to 5.2-inches with a 1080p resolution, and there's a 3,160mAh battery inside powering the whole thing.
As far as cameras are concerned, there's a 21MP shooter round back with a 2.1MP front-facing camera. The smartphone also packs support for QuickCharge 2.0 and Qi wireless charging.
And, of course, there's the reason that Vertu's phones come in at nearly $10,000 a pop: services. The company's latest Signature Touch smartphone comes with 18 months of concierge service, through which users have access to a dedicated line for setting up travel arrangements, finding gifts, and much, much more.
If you happen to have a lot of money to throw around, the new Vertu Signature Touch will go up for pre-order at Harrods in the UK and "at selected boutiques globally" between September 25 and October 8.
