Before Vertu closed shop last year, it released the Constellation X in January. It was scheduled to go on sale in February but it didn’t. If you are still interested and have $6500 to waste, you can order for one starting April 12.
When the Vertu Constellation X was announced in January 2017, the specs were manageable but now, you are better off buying the Porsche Design Huawei Mate RS.
The Constellation X is a 5.5” phone with a QHD AMOLED display and a 140-carat sapphire glass covering it. There is a Snapdragon 820 processor with 4GB of RAM and 128GB of storage under the hood.
The primary camera is a 12MP sensor with a 1.55um pixel size. There is also a 4MP f/2.0 front facing camera. The phone runs Android Marshmallow, has NFC, a front-mounted fingerprint scanner, and dual front facing speakers.
It has a 3200mAh battery with support for Quick Charge via a USB-C 2.0 port. There is also support for wireless charging. The Vertu Constellation X is hand-crafted in England and is covered in Italian leather.
Like previous Vertu phones, the Constellation X also gives you a one touch access to a concierge service (1 year). This can be activated by pushing the ruby button on the left of the phone.
The Constellation X will be available in Walnut Brown, Rose and Gray-Blue starting April 12 for ¥39,800 (~$6,339). Orders can be made on JD.com.
