we know phones are more than just phones. You've got your apps, your browsers, your 3D Touch. What about a luxury phone that represents your elite lifestyle?


British luxury phone brand Vertu announced the New Signature Touch on Thursday. Depending on which one you get, from the jet calf model to the pure jet red gold, it starts at $9,000 and goes up to $19,000. You'll also have the option to personalize it with various colors, leathers, rare metals and an engraving.


Each phone is handmade in England. The cases are made from natural hides and leathers, including calfskin, lizard and alligator, all sourced in Europe. The outer casing is Grade 5 Titanium, used in the automotive and aerospace industries. The 5.2-inch 1080p scratchproof screen is made from 130 carat sapphire crystal, and the earpiece pillow is formed with Zirconia.


Let's get into the tech specs. The New Signature Touch runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop. The hardware includes the Qualcomm Snapdragon 810 octa-core processor with 64-bit computing on 8 CPU cores, which means faster and smoother usability. The 21 megapixel main camera also has 4K video capture, and there's also a 2.1 megapixel wide aperture front camera. There's also 64GB of internal storage and 4GB of RAM.

This smartphone will be available for pre-order in select company boutiques between September 28 and October 8, with sales due to kick off on October 16. Pricing of the latest Signature Touch ranges between £6,500 and £13,700 depending on the combination of metal and exotic leather you choose.
