The model is available in two options: aluminum with rubber inserts (orange or black) or aluminum with a brown leather insert, or titanium body with leather inserts. To my taste, the aluminum version looks cheaper and somehow simplifies the model’s outlook in general. Titanium body looks more impressive.
The phone measures 117 mm x 46 mm x 19 mm (4.60” x 1.81” x 0.74”) and weighs 148 g to 170 g (5.22 oz. to 6.00 oz.), depending on the version. A typical Vertu size, the feel is solid, the phone is pleasantly heavy. Unlike previous models, the right-hand side is no longer home for the camera button; what’s on it now is a chronograph button.
The upper end houses the ON button. The 11x15 mm speakers are situated on both sides which is typical for Vertu. However, they sound somewhat worse than those on Vertu Ti or Constellation.
The battery compartment cover, unlike Constellation, now has three push areas, it sits firmly in place and is totally slack-free. The build is perfect. The back side (matt metal surface) may be prone to wear from very active use.
