Vertu Launch Constellation Black Neon Handset

By Paul Joseph

Luxury phone makers Vertu have launched their latest creation, the ultra-luxurious Constellation Black Neon.

The new handset is hand-crafted from a combination of leather, carbon fibre and rubies and is billed as resembling a luxury sports car.

Decorated in perforated leather, the Black Neon smartphone features neon coloured accents over PVD stainless steel, plus a polished sapphire crystal 3.5-inch touchscreen and an intricate ruby surround on the shutter key for the 8-megapixel camera.

The phone is available in three separate colours – neon blue, neon orange and neon silver – and comes with 32GB of memory, an FM radio, GPS and an Accelerometer.

As with all Vertu models, owners are given 24-hour access to an exclusive Vertu concierge service they can call for expert assistance for anything from gifts to events and experiences.

In June it was announced that Vertu had been purchased from owners Nokia by the private Northern European equity group EQT VI.
