Mobile phone legends Vertu announce NFT-publishing Web3 mobile

The device comes in two models and will be able to instantly create NFTs. But wait till you hear the price…

Luxury mobile brand Vertu has recently announced its new Web3 phone, Metavertu. The device is aiming to be the very first ‘Web3 phone’ on the market.

The latest device will be able to run its own blockchain node and it has the ability to turn photos and videos taken on the device into NFTs in a seamless click of a button. The mobile phone will also be able to switch between Web3 and Web2 modes and hopes to “de-complicate Web3”. 

The Web3 space is quickly gaining traction as consumers see the allure of decentralisation. From crypto markets to the world of NFTs Web3 is a market that more individuals and businesses are looking to be a part of.

Multiple models of the phone are set for release with each sporting a ceramic frame and Vertu’s sapphire glass screen. The device is powered by a Qualcomm SnapDragon 8 Gen 1 CPU and features a 2400×1090 AMOLED display. The phone also packs a three-lens camera. The entry-level model comes with 12GB RAM and 512 GB internal storage whereas the top-range model grants users 18GB RAM and 1TB of storage, this version comes with a fancy alligator leather pattern, 18k gold, and diamonds design.

Further design details for the device are showcased in a short trailer which highlights some of the phone’s features in a style that instantly triggered flashes of the T-1000 from Terminator 2 in my mind.

Here’s the kicker… 

So now we have covered some specs, let’s talk price points. The entry-level model comes in at $3,600. Pretty pricey right? But that’s nothing compared to the top-end model which is priced at a massive $41,000. That said the ability to create and mint your own NFTs on the device is surely a licence to print money?

Vertu is not shying away from the fact that these new mobile phones are aiming the top end of the market and are hoping to entice those that may have already jumped into the world of Web3 and bought in. In which case a matching Web3 phone could be the physical icing on a virtual cake.

Users will be able to create a wallet with only a few clicks and private keys will be protected by the phone’s execution environment, a series of decentralised applications will be available which are all presented through an android-styled interface. Pre-orders for the mobile device are available now and hardware is intended to release this year.
