Bentley Teams With Vertu for the Ultimate Luxe Tech Toy


If you’re ready for a brand new, totally high-end tech toy, you’re in luck. Bentley and Vertu have come together to create a solid piece of luxury called the Signature Touch for Bentley as part of its five-year brand-to-brand partnership.

Here’s what you’ll find: a Snapdragon 810 processor, 4GB of RAM, and 64GB of internal storage plus an included 64GB microSD card which can be expanded up to 128GBs via a microSD card slot; a 21MP rear camera and a 2.1MP front-facer with phase detection autofocus; dual-LED flash, and 4K video recording a 1080p 5.2-inch display (428PPI) covered by a sapphire display; and  a 3160 mAh battery with Quick Charging via micro-USB. It runs on Android 5.1 Lollipop.

It looks luxurious too thanks to two-tone Beluga and Hotspur Bentley leather with the brand’s signature Hotspur stitching, handmade in England. You’ll also find knurled side keys, a titanium body, a one-of-a-kind pillow rail and a 3D Bentley logo as well as Vertu’s most “vibrant display ever”, which is complimented by the Dolby Digital Plus virtual surround sound technology.

Not only that, but the device comes with its own concierge service as well as an app that provides exclusive content and access to VIP events. The phone also—surprise, surprise—has special features that provides integration with Bentley cars as well as remote locking and wiping through its new Lost Phone service.

Real ballers will customize their ride and their phone to match (it will be available in a choice of eight leather colors and 16 stitching options). Prices for the most basic model start at $9,000, so you can well expect that the Signature Touch for Bentley will easily retail for five figures. But hey, if you can afford a Bentley, you can definitely afford its Smartphone collaboration.

Sorry Verizon users and Sprint-ers: this high-end tech toy currently only works with AT&T and T-Mobile.
