Vertu’s first flip phone, the Constellation Ayxta ($6,500-$8,600), was created to be the jetsetter’s essential travel companion. In addition to Vertu’s Concierge and Select services, the Constellation Ayxta launches a new benefit program: City Brief.
With the push of a button, City Brief assesses your locale and dispatches specialized information about your surroundings—from exclusive restaurant recommendations and shopping guides to cultural events and etiquette tips. Hand assembled in Vertu’s Church Crookham workshop near London, the sleek Constellation Ayxta features a precisely engineered hinge devised to endure the rigors of the road. The strong linear design with Vertu’s signature V-shaped accents combines ceramic, leather, a sapphire crystal screen, and a stainless-steel frame coupled with aerospace-grade aluminium parts. Even the ring tones—composed and recorded by British Grammy nominee Zero 7—are uncommon.
