new winter version

Vertu logoThis new iteration of the Signature Touch replaces the Snapdragon 800 chipset with the chipset Snapdragon 810, which has been talked about more for its concerns about overheating than for its sparks in the benchmarks. The CPU part is also coupled with 4 GB of RAM. Some may have preferred to wait a little longer and go directly to the Snapdragon 820 model in order to avoid problems that seem to remain despite the fixes.

This new version of the Signature Touch is also synonymous with a larger diagonal, since we go from 4.7 to 5.2 inch, always with a definition of 1,920 x 1,080 pixels. It also improves the photo part, which goes from a 2.1 / 13 megapixel duo to a 2.1 / 21 megapixel duo. The technical sheet finally mentions a 64 GB flash memory expandable by MicroSD, after lifting the small hatch at the back, a battery 3,160 mAh, with fast charge and wireless charge thanks to QI technology, and a ROM based on Android 5.1.1.
