So there are simple phones and there are smartphones. Oh wait, there are also premium smartphones and then there are luxury phones. But how do you define a luxury phone? Well a Titanium body and a sapphire crystal screen would sure make the cut.

That’s exactly what the new luxury phone Vertu TI has. The new smartphone by luxury mobile maker Vertu has been launched in India at a price of (Believe it or not) Rs 6,49,990.
For those who are still reading this, the Vertu TI is equipped with a dual-core 1.7 GHz processor and 1GB of RAM. The phone also has 64GB of internal storage and an 8MP rear camera with 1080p video capability as well as a 1.3MP front camera.

The display of this luxury phone is 3.7-inch WVGA screen and runs the Android 4.0 (Ice Cream Sandwich) operating system which has been customized by Vertu to provide a new user interface.
Talk about the luxury of it, the Vertu TI is made of 184 individual parts crafted specially by Vertu’s craftsmen in England. The body of the phone as mentioned earlier is made of Grade 5 Titanium and the screen of the smartphone is made of sapphire crystal which gives it scratch-proof quality and four times higher strength than any other smartphone.
Like the saying goes, you just can’t put a price on some things. It is yet to be seen whether this phone is one of those things.
