Fans of foldable smartphones have something to be excited about, with the release of the Vertu Ayxta Fold 5G. Vertu is well known for its luxury customizations and it has taken that craft to foldable phones.
The Ayxta Fold 5G is merely a customized version of the Royole Flexpai 2. It retains the original design and specs lineup of the Flexpai 2 includng the Snapdragon 865 chip, but sees some changes including a new operating system, leather-covered back cover, and a number of fashionable additions to make the phone a fashion statement. It could well be an important part of the accessories of the fashionista.
But it comes at a high price. The Vertu Ayxta Fold 5G is listed on Jingdong (JD.com) in China for over 45,000 Yuan (about $7,000), which is well on the high end of the spectrum.
This foldable luxury smartphone has the same general specifications at par with a number of quite less expensive models which include a Qualcomm Snapdragon 865 processor, 8 GB of RAM, 256 GB internal storage, a 7.8 inches display screen, and others. The Vertu Ayxta Fold 5G has a 64 MP main camera and a 32 MP selfie cam.
The justification for the cost of the luxury smartphone may just be because it could serve as a fashion accessory for its users. However, the critical components of the smartphone including an operating system based on Android 10 could be a reason why a few may stay away from having it.
It remains to be seen how the Chinese high-end fashionable segment would react to the entry of the Ayxta Fold 5G into the market.
