The Vertu Signature Touch was leaked out by AnTuTu last month. Today, the smartphone has been officially announced by the company boasting a decent hardware specs sheet and the usual suite of royalty like features we come to expect from Vertu devices.
The smartphone comes with a 4.7 inch 1080p display with the glass made of sapphire crystal backed by a titanium case. Underneath the exterior is a 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 SoC, a 13-megapixel camera unit on the back with a 2.1-megapixel sensor on the front, Android 4.4 KitKat and a 2,275 mAh battery. The smartphone also supports LTE bands 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 7, 8, 17, 20 and 25 which is good news for LTE markets.
This handset has been priced at £6,750 or $11,300, which is pretty steep for a smartphone but not surprising considering Vertu’s history. The manufacturer is known for its premium grade devices with not so flattering internal hardware, but it’s good to see those issues being rectified with this latest offering. We’re yet to learn about launch related details, but the handset should break cover internationally over the coming months.

A new benchmark listing on AnTuTu has revealed the presence of an upcoming Vertu device known as the Signature Touch. And unlike standard Vertu devices, this one focuses on the internal hardware as well, at least according to the benchmark scores. AnTuTu shows a decent score of 31,509 with its quad core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 SoC, which is quite decent.
The smartphone is also expected to feature 16GB of internal storage, 2GB of RAM, a 13-megapixel rear camera with a front facing 2-megapixel shooter and Android 4.4.2 KitKat. The display size isn’t mentioned in the listing, but it will reportedly be a 1080p panel.
Vertu smartphones have traditionally been centered towards the build quality and the premium materials used in its making. We don’t think the company will sacrifice that aspect of the hardware with the Signature Touch, but it’s good to know that customers will also get capable hardware for a device which could cost north of $5000.
Additional details are yet to be disclosed, but benchmark listings are usually an indication of the device’s imminent arrival, so we might not have to wait long.
