Where to Buy Android Phones
The design of the Vertu Signature Touch has to be awesome since you will have to cough out a huge some to get one, and so it is. The smartphone shows off a body made of first-class Grade 5 Titanium, an extremely resilient material said to be two times stronger and lighter than steel.
The chassis is covered with premium leather that is available in different variants of materials and attractive colours.
The 2015 edition of the Vertu Signature Touch is fitted with a larger 5.2-inch display – a significant improvement on the 4.7-inch screen on its predecessor – with a Full HD resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels.
With a pixel density of approximately 428 pixels per inch, you should expect exciting colour reproduction. The display is protected by tough, highly scratch-resistant sapphire crystal glass.
You get an upgraded 21-megapixel main camera on the Vertu Signature Touch. The shooter, which has Gull-Wing doors on either side, features an f/2.2 aperture, sapphire crystal lenses, dual-tone LED flash and phase detection autofocus for awesome shots.
Vertu Signature Touch can also be used to record stunning 4K videos. However, you still get a rather low 2.1-megapixel snapper for selfies.
