Vertu is resurrected in a luxury mobile with pre-installed Android and WhatsApp that does not require a touch screen
Vertu closed its doors almost four seasons ago. What used to be one of the best known luxury cell phone makers on the market ended up giving in to the pressure of its low sales and lowered the blind. The brand that was born under the Nokia umbrella then ceased to exist but it seems their projects are reluctant to do so.
Gold, physical keyboard, Android and WhatsApp
Encrusted gemstones, genuine leather cases and all kinds of precious metals to transform Apple, Samsung and company phones into unique and many times more expensive models.
Caviar Origin, however, raises interesting concepts. The first is to repeat an aesthetic that, as we said before, is powerfully reminiscent of the phones produced by Vertu, including the physical keyboard with straight and hard lines. And it is precisely the presence of this keyboard that is related to another feature of this concept which is Origin: it mounts Android but can be used with physical buttons.
It is not known whether Origin of Caviar will have a touch screen or not, but the Android it contains has been modified so that it is not necessary to carry it. The company has chosen Android (it is said) for application support and is that, from the beginning, Caviar Origin comes with pre-installed WhatsApp. Luxurious metals could not be missing and just take a look at the physical keyboard to see that it is covered in gold.
This Caviar Origin with luxury flavor and Vertu will arrive in the fourth quarter of this 2021 and it looks like its price will start at $ 1,000. We don’t know if there will be superior models based on their other build materials, as Caviar hasn’t unveiled them, nor do we know if it will be a limited production or if Caviar wants to go further. For that we will have to wait.
