Vertu Upgrades Its Constellation

Vertu has introduced its latest addition to the Constellation collection—the sleek Constellation Black Neon ($8,300)—revealing a redesigned handset with polished black stainless steel, black ceramic details, and a handcrafted leather border and backing, with Vertu’s signature sapphire crystal screen. Among its technical features is an 8-megapixel camera, which has a decorative ruby gemstone adorning the shutter key, a 3.5-inch nHD brilliant AMOLED display as well as a 3.5 mm audio/video socket for enhanced viewing, GPS navigation, Bluetooth, and more. The phone is also equipped with Vertu’s standard concierge service, accessible by a key on the handset, which provides everything from restaurant recommendations to priority bookings, 24 hours a day worldwide.

The Constellation Black Neon is available in neon blue, orange, and silver and comes with a perforated calf leather slipcase. (888.999.5303, www.vertu.com)
