The recently announced Vertu Signature Touch is a superpowered smartphone. It offers the functionality of today’s most popular models—thanks to its Google Android 4.4 KitKat operating system, with access to millions of apps—with cutting-edge and sophisticated touches that lend it unprecedented performance: a 2.3 GHz quad-core processor; a 4.7-inch high-definition touchscreen display that is protected by sapphire crystal; remarkably potent Bang & Olufsen audio; a 13-megapixel autofocus camera with twin LED flash (the front camera offers a 2.1-megapixel resolution and is Skype certified); and quad-band connectivity up to 1,900 MHz, with an array of available Internet access bands including the latest 4G.

In addition to Vertu’s Concierge—a 24-hour service available worldwide for technical support and for assistance with reservations, directions, and recommendations that can be engaged via a dedicated ruby button on the side of the phone—the Signature Touch delivers Vertu’s new Vertu Life service. It offers access to world-class experiences at such red-carpet events as the Cannes Film Festival and Milan Fashion Week. The Signature touch also offers the Vertu Certainty service, which provides first-rate encryption and mobile data security.

Of course, a Vertu is not a Vertu without luxury appointments. The Signature Touch is available with a variety of metals and leathers, including titanium, red gold, lizard, and alligator. The Vertu Signature Touch began shipping in June for prices ranging from $10,800 to $23,100. (www.vertu.com)
