British phone maker Vertu’s first Android phone reportedly appeared on Wednesday in some leaked photos. The photos appear to be official press shots.

The name "Ti" and the model number RM-828V have popped up recently on benchmark and database sites ranging from GLBenchmark to Bluetooth SIG.

This leak seems legit, and an official reveal may be close.

Vertu's strategy is simple- tack on some gemstones and gold plating onto mediocre devices and sell them at more than the actual value.

For its part, there's no indication of how much the Constellation Ti will cost, though going by previous Vertu devices it could be anywhere from AU$5,303 to AU$303,000. There have been previous Constellation models that came in on the lower end of that spectrum, though still pretty expensive.

Based on various sources around the web, the Vertu Constellation Ti will likely sport Android 4.0.4: Ice Cream Sandwich, an 800 x 480 display, and a 1.5GHz processor.

Russian retailer spblux.ru even lists four different variations of the Ti, which you can see in the image above. One has a little gold thing, two feature leather, and one has an alligator pattern.

The Constellation Ti may show up at MWC in February.
