Nokia's luxury brand Vertu has been cranking out absurdly expensive phones for nearly 15 years, but it has yet to release anything that tugs at the heartstrings of a smartphone lover. That is is to change, apparently, as the Bluetooth SIG has revealed what looks to be Vertu's first smartphone device with a touchscreen, the Constellation T.

The Constellation T won't make the latest iPhone or high-end Android user jealous with its capabilities, but when you have a phone that is encrusted in diamonds and rare metals, what do you care? The Constellation T sports a 3.5-inch, nHD (360 x 640 pixel) AMOLED display and an 8 megapixel camera with dual-LED flash. There is 32GB of storage available, and the T is likely running Symbian Anna or even Belle, possibly with a custom Vertu interface that will differentiate it from Nokia's smartphones for the masses.

Vertu phones regularly run into the five digit price territory, so the Constellation T will likely be available with a number of customization options, including gemstones. We don't yet know when it will be available for the uber-rich to purchase, but an October release has been rumored. [via This Is My Next]
