Almost missed this… Vertu launched its second Android-based smartphone, Constellation, which could be yours for “only” $6,630. Unfortunately, that price won’t give you top-notch specs; instead, you’re getting a mid-range smartphone with a 4.3-inch 720p HD sapphire glass-protected screen, Qualcomm Snapdragon S4 dual-core processor, 13-megapixel camera on the back, and 32 or 64 GB of internal storage. LTE connectivity doesn’t come included but you do get unlimited global Wi-Fi access from iPass.
Yeah, the Constellation is nothing-special under the hood, but then again – that’s usually the case with this sort of phones. You do get a calf leather and titanium body, with leather extending around the body of the handset. This apparently should tell everyone in you vicinity how rich, famous and popular you are, and it only makes sense to do business with you, right?
Guess we’re too poor to dig the whole luxury smartphone market. I do understand that handmade products and expensive materials get you an extra look and feel, but I would expect nothing less than top-notch specs from a device costing more than $6,000. What do you say?
