Vertu is a luxury mobile phone maker based in the United Kingdom. It was founded in 1998 as a wholly-owned subsidiary of the Finnish smartphone maker Nokia. In October 2012, Nokia sold Vertu to private equity firm EQT VI for an undisclosed sum, while maintaining a 10% stake. Vertu has switched hands several times since EQT VI but hasn’t got the expected success in the smartphone industry. Here, we will be looking at all the Vertu mobile phones in Nepal, alongside their expected price.
With that out of the way, let us discuss its formal launch in Nepal. Vertu’s phones have never made it to Nepal till now and the obvious reason is their exorbitant cost. However, Vertu-branded smartphones have now officially made their way in Nepal via Oliz Store.
Vertu Mobile Price in Nepal:
For those unaware, Vertu’s entry-level product starts in the thousands of dollars and can even easily the five-figure mark. They are extremely pricey because of the precious materials and jewels used in the handsets. Similarly, Vertu smartphones are handcrafted, which adds to their exclusivity (as well as the cost). However, the newer Vertu phones (including iVertu 5 G) are manufactured in China, not UK.
iVertu 5 G
iVertu 5 G features a 6.67-inch AMOLED panel with an FHD resolution of 1080 x 2400 pixels. The screen refreshes at 120 Hz while it boasts a pixel density of 395 PPI. Despite featuring a center-aligned punch-hole cutout, the screen-to-body ratio here is just 87.2%
The frames on iVertu 5 G are metallic. Users can choose between alligator leather or a calfskin back.

The phone flaunts a quad-camera setup at the back. Here, the primary camera uses a 64 MP sensor. There is another 64 MP sensor for the ultrawide camera. Accompanying the two is a 5 MP macro and a 2 MP depth sensor.
