Vertu for Bentley Launches $17K Smartphone

Bentley owners have a new toy to match their cars, but it doesn’t come cheap. 

The first in a lineup of ‘Vertu for Bentley’ smartphones has been revealed with a base price of $17,100. To make it gel with Bentley’s offerings, the phone is wrapped in quilted-calf leather in the classic Bentley shade of Newmarket Tan, finished with a diamond pattern. Where there isn’t leather, titanium that features tactile diamond knurling is used.

Other aspects of the phone have also been made sleeker to capture the look of a Bentley, while the brand’s winged logo is found near the microphone. The Android 4.4 operating system powers the phone.

Screen savers, start-up screens and the 3D clock will also be inspired by Bentley.

This is the first in a lineup of five phone that will be released as a part of the Vertu for Bentley line. An initial run of 2,000 units will be produced.
