Vertu’s excursion, which arose as an exploration of the intention of a phone as a luxury prestige symbol akin to high-end fashion items, has been nothing short of fascinating. After passing through several parent companies and even deliberate liquidation, the brand has now found new life under Chengdu VERTU Business Management Co. Ltd.

The Metavertu portrays an advancement of the original Vertu concept, submersing users in a world that combines the familiar with the futuristic. With two distinct operating systems, one dedicated to NFTs and blockchain, the phone enables users to delve into the kingdom of Web 3.0 flawlessly. It’s fortified with a blockchain chip that meets the security morals of global financial foundations, promising to keep your cryptocurrency safe from cyber threats.

Beyond its technical expertise, Metavertu preserves the features of Vertu’s fortune. The device displays a ceramic frame, Vertu’s signature sapphire glass screen, and customization options that can enhance its price to stratospheric levels, making it more affluent than mainstream handsets. This luxury extends to reveal diamond detailing, gold and platinum finishes, and even alligator leather for those who desire the utmost individuality.

Under the hood, the Metavertu is no hunch, either. It houses a Qualcomm Snapdragon 8 Gen 1 CPU, up to 18GB of RAM, and storage choices reaching a staggering 1TB, paired with 10TB of dispersed online file hosting. Its 6.67-inch AMOLED display boasts a 144Hz refresh rate, granting a visual feast for its observing users.

Although the Metavertu may seem like a carnival of remarkable consumption, its appeal extends beyond abundance. For those fascinated by the realm of cryptocurrency, this phone offers the tools to trade and mine crypto, particularly Ethereum, all within the limits of a luxurious device. It sets a limit for one-click transitions between Web 2.0 and Web 3.0 capacities, simplifying the intricacies of the latter for users.

Moreover, Metavertu familiarizes a series of decentralized applications (d-apps) involving VOS, which supports users to relate with the Ethereum blockchain and Vshot, allowing for the formation of NFTs from photos or videos with ease. Vertu’s own Vtalk proposes encrypted peer-to-peer messaging with unified decentralized social networking characteristics.

To cater to its elite clientele in the Web3 world, Vertu has even assembled a special NFT investment team, ready to guide users through the intricacies of non-fungible tokens and recommend valuable collections to acquire.

As Vertu returns to the forefront of luxury smartphones with Metavertu, it redefines what it means to indulge in extravagance in a world where technology and luxury converge. The phone’s fusion of cutting-edge technology and timeless opulence makes it a beacon for those who desire both status and substance.
