The Ascent lineup of Vertu luxury phones is about to be updated. Unusually rich in features, the Ascent X packs GPS, 32GB storage and a 5 megapixel camera. We even have a couple of photos of the thing sourced from the Bluetooth website.
The Vertu Ascent X 5 megapixel camera will sport a LED flash and continuous autofocus(!). The 2" 16M-color TFT display is the only thing that hasnt been updated to modern standards. The specs on this thing definitely sound a lot like Nokia 6700 classic, which recently got a golden makeover.
Connectivity-wise, the Ascent X will pack support for quad-band 3G with HSDPA, Bluetooth v2.0 and should come with a built-in GPS receiver.
However, there is still no word on the materials it is made of and those are actually what make a Vertu phone special. Its price and launch date are unknown, too, but once we come upon more details on the Ascent X well let you know, so stay tuned.
