It seems there is a market for ­people willing to pay between R50 000 and R159 000 for a phone from luxury brand Vertu. This is a trend that is expected to grow. A case in point is the R69 000 offered on Bidorbuy, no less, for Vertu’s relatively cheap Ascent Red phone. Vertu employee Antonio Ambrosio
