Luxury phone maker Vertu needs no introduction when it comes to luxury devices. The British manufacturer and retailer of luxury, handmade mobile phones established by Finnish mobile-phone manufacturer Nokia has been in the business since 1998. But recently, Chinese company LEAGOO released the LEAGOO Venture 1 luxury smartphone and the phone has been seeing some attention lately due to its similarity in design to the Vertu Aster T.
The LEAGOO Venture 1 features the similar luxury leather material and exquisite design as the Aster T. Both smartphones are handcrafted with a first-class calfskin on the exterior which gives them a unique design. Both phones feature the latest 4G network and have been customized to suit customers’ needs. Although they both uses leather on the exterior, other materials may differ, thus the Venture 1 and Aster T may be priced differently.

The device also packs a 2GB RAM and 64B of internal storage inside. On the camera end, there is a 13MP rear camera with LED flash and a 2.1MP front-facing camera on the device which runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop.

In addition, the LEAGOO Venture 1 crams a 3,000 mAh battery under its hood with Quick Charge 1.5 fast charging technology for faster, safer and seamless charging. The Aster T features a slightly smaller 2,275mAh battery. Although the Venture 1 runs on the same Android 5.1 Lollipop OS, the device also adopts LEAGOO’s latest LEAGOO OS 1.0 which brings a more unique and delightful UI to enrich user experience.
We must not fail to mention that the Venture 1 isn’t just a luxury phone but also one of the world’s most secured smartphone.

The security system is based on bank-level security chip’s encryption, and the Dual Secure OS function perfectly well to decline any chance of your personal data leaking out.
