Luxury phone maker Vertu today unveiled its first handset created in collaboration with luxury automaker Bentley (a collaboration of which we told you about
back in July). Called “Vertu for Bentley”, the new smartphone is based on the Vertu Signature Touch
that was announced earlier this year.
The “Vertu for Bentley” is dressed in calf leather, and comes with exclusive Bentley content - including an exclusive Bentley app, wallpapers, and a unique 3D animation start-up, all complementing the Bentley logo on the front of the device.
Specs-wise, the new handset is similar to the Vertu Signature Touch, so it’s got a 4.7-inch sapphire crystal display with 1080 x 1920 pixels, LTE, stereo speakers, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor clocked at 2.3
GHz, 64 GB of internal memory, and a 2275 mAh battery. There’s a 13 MP camera on the back, plus a 2.1
MP one on the front.
Vertu says the new Bentley-endorsed smartphone will be available starting this month for €12,500 (about $15,896), running Android 4.4 KitKat out of the box. Only 2000 units will be sold, each coming with its own leather case
. Any buyers?
