PERFECTLY TUNED ACOUSTICS
Aster’s sound has been expertly tuned. With cutting-edge noise cancellation and virtual surround reproduction, it gives you an unforgettable audio experience.

- Pre-set Dolby® profiles are quickly accessed by our custom volume control.
- Aster uses Qualcomm® aptX™ audio support for superior audio quality when streaming music through a Bluetooth connection, and for smoother videos and gaming.

- The 4.7” full-HD display, with 473 pixels per inch, is the highest-resolution display of that size – with a sapphire screen for a flawless viewing experience.

- Aster’s advanced display management gives you a high-quality viewing experience, even in bright sunshine and significantly cuts display power consumption.
As robust as it is beautiful and powerful, Aster is built to our uncompromising standards.
- Made from a single piece of scratch resistant sapphire, the second-toughest natural material after diamond, your HD screen is well protected.
- We use Grade 5 titanium alloy, usually found in spacecraft because it’s twice the strength but almost half the weight of steel.
- Our solid ruby key is chosen for its fine appearance and resistance to wear.
- We use laser-blasted Physical Vapour Deposition (PVD) to create an exceptionally tough, and beautiful black surface.
- Dropped on concrete, frozen to -45°C, baked at 80 °C, and pummelled with ball bearings, Aster is rigorously tested to take extreme punishment.
