Vertu Constellation Ti Runs Android: Nope, Open Source Doesn’t Make it Any Cheaper

by Range

At the rate that I change smartphones, about once or twice a year, I could probably bankrupt myself pretty quickly if I were to buy Vertu phones instead of the brands I usually do. Recently, there was a rumor that Vertu would be using Android in its next smartphone. According to Japanese gadget site Blog of Mobile!!, the rumors are true, and Android specs have turned up in its certification testing data.


The Vertu Constellation Ti RM-828V is expected to be Android-powered, running 4.0.4 Ice Cream Sandwich. The CPU is a 1.5Ghz Snapdragon MSM8260A processor, and the phone will support Bluetooth 4.0 and NFC. It has a 800 × 480 resolution display, and a paltry 1,250 mAh battery.

For all you kids with trust funds, the Vertu Constellation Ti will come in Red Gold Mixed Metal, Titanium Black Alligator, Titanium Black Leather, and Titanium Black PVD Leather, with prices rumored to start around $5,500(USD). Think that’s pricey? The most expensive phone Vertu ever made cost over $300,000.

It always amazes me how these “luxury” phones always seem to have slightly outdated tech.
