The Aster continues the refreshing new trend at Vertu of ensuring that the tech inside the hardware matches the high-end exterior. The screen measures 4.7 inches and has a 1080p resolution, but is covered with a 5.1-inch piece of fifth-generation sapphire crystal, and it’s all encased inside a titanium, leather clad body shell.
Last year’s Vertu Constellation was designed to appeal to people who found the Vertu Ti too masculine, or overly aggressive in its styling. The Aster is softer, too, and many of the visual improvements introduced on the Signature Touch — the smooth, sleek sides, for example — are repeated here.

Naturally, the Vertu Aster is quite expensive. Prices start at £4,200 (around $6,800) and rise to £5,900 ($9,550) for the most expensive Ostrich leather model. Even one of the gorgeous matching leather slip cases will set you back between £280/$450 and £590/$950. Deep pockets, then, are essential. But exclusivity never comes cheap.
