Vertu has unveiled its first smartphone in Hong Kong, the Constellation Quest, which is designed with user experience as its primary consideration.
Perry Oosting, President of Vertu said: “Vertu has applied its values of an authentic, tailored, luxury experience to our first smartphone, creating a handset that is as functional as it is beautiful. The launch of another new form factor reflects our ongoing engagement with our customers to deliver the products they desire.”
The homescreen is uncluttered, displaying only the essentials chosen by the customer, while Vertu’s signature analogue clock is also featured, automatically adjusting to the user’s location. Vertu’s trained assistants also configure the settings to the owner’s individual preferences and once the customer has taken receipt of the phone, they can rely on Vertu’s assistance 24-hours a day.
This service includes a unique feature in the mobile phone sector called Vertu Remote Assist. If and when required, it allows Vertu’s technical support team to remotely access the phone (with the user’s consent) to resolve any technical or set up queries. Meanwhile another appeal is the introduction of vertu.me, a personal Vertu email account, while customers also get access to Vertu’s concierge service.
Technical specifications include multi-band GSM, 3G and HSPA coverage, hi-speed WLAN, 40 GB memory, a high resolution and high contrast VGA screen, Bluetooth®, free global maps and navigation with Assisted GPS as well as high quality acoustics.
Available in 18-carat yellow gold and surgical grade stainless steel, each Constellation Quest is built by just one technician who signs the handset.
