Luxury smartphone maker Vertu has launched its first Android-operated handset.

The Vertu Ti costs 7,900 euros (£6,994) and is made at the firm's headquarters in Church Crookham, Hampshire.

Speaking to the BBC's Aaron Heslehurst, Vertu's chief executive Perry Oosting denied the handset was simply "a showpiece".
