Vertu, the craftsmen behind the world's most luxurious and arguably ludicrous phones (and headphones) has a new device.
And in a move seemingly designed to troll those of you who already feel the company is bowling slightly outside your wicket, it's got a Bentley logo on the front.
The Vertu For Bentley is a new edition of the Signature Touch device which we reviewed recently and - in all honesty - found to be a pretty good phone on its own terms.
This model comes with the same Vertu Concierge service designed to take Siri and turn it into a real-life, human butler, available at the press of a button. It also comes with exclusive Bentley content, which presumably you'll want.
The key specs are:
- Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 processor
- 4.7-inch 1080p screen
- 13 megapixels camera
- 64gb storage
- Wireless charging
- 2275mAh Li-ion battery
And the added-extra 'luxury' specs include:
- Vertu for Bentley slip case
- "swathed in quilted calf leather"
- grade-5 titanium case
- solid sapphire crystal screen
- Engine-tuned pattern on the back plate (plus signature of the craftsman who made it)
- "traditional ceramic pillow"
- Dolby Digital Plus virtual surround-sound processing and stereo speakers
And yes since this is a Vertu device it also comes with a hilarious price tag, which in this case is…
If you want one, there are only 2,000 being made so you'll probably want to move fairly quickly, in a bold, confident, heavy sort of way.
