The Vertu Ascent Ti Damascus Steel was apparently developed by relying on “ancient steel forging” techniques. The kind used throughout the centuries to make Samurai swords. This results in the metal being harder. The specs aren’t exactly mind blowing, with a QVGA display, S40 user interface, GSM/UMTS connectivity, a 3.2-megapixel camera with LED flash and 4GB of internal memory.
There will only be a hundred available, so expect to pay a pretty penny for this handset that’s as tough as a sword. We don’t have a price just yet.
Each of the units will come with unique hand-made swirl designs.
