Tweet this: Bentley announces luxury smartphone collection

Bentley has signed a 5-year partnership with Vertu to develop its own range of luxury smartphones.

The first Vertu for Bentley phone is planned for launch in October. It will be followed by four further distinctive models, each of which will encompass authentic and iconic Bentley design elements and luxury lifestyle services.

"Bentley's new partnership with Vertu brings together two world-leading brands defined by their commitment to performance, luxury and customer experience," said Wolfgang Dürheimer, chairman and CEO of Bentley Motors. "The collaboration expands Bentley's luxury range into the cutting-edge world of mobile communications and offers customers a new way to experience the world of Bentley."

Exclusive Bentley experiences and the latest Bentley content for owners and enthusiasts will be consolidated in an application on the device.

While these exclusive Vertu for Bentley phones won't be limited to Bentley owners, not everyone will be able to afford them. Some sources claim that customers will have to pay up to €11,000 ($16,000) to get one.
