Ever since the inception of the mobile phone in everyday life, an instance always seems to appear showcasing a blur on both excess and premium quality. You know what we’re talking about – you may have encountered ads or articles on certain phone models that have a massive price tag!
And one particular mobile phone company associated with these expensive price tags is none other than Vertu. Let us learn more about this group below:
Extravagant Take on Mobile Phones
Originally established by then mobile giant, Nokia, Vertu was founded mainly to produce luxury and bespoke mobile phones. Nokia sold the brand to a private equity group, EQT VI in 2012. The company then enjoyed a great following from the upper class market, mainly because of its unique and expensive take on mobile phones.
Vertu then shifted management the next following years, until the company, unfortunately, filed for bankruptcy in 2017. The company relaunched the following year, releasing a new line of phones that weren’t made in the United Kingdom (this time around, it’s in China).

Although expensive, Vertu is a good example of how mobile phones can be packaged and marketed in a different manner. The luxury approach did attract a fair share of consumers (those who can afford to spend twice as much as a typical individual). And yet, with the rapid evolution of technology on telecom devices, Vertu needs to constantly race on how to offer premium features and tech.
