In case the iPhone 6 wasn’t flashy enough for Bentley drivers out there, the British carmaker has just announced the Vertu for Bentley, the first smartphone offered by the company. The phone costs 12,500 Euros (almost $16,000) and will only be available in certain Vertu stores in a limited run of 2,000 units. According to the official specs, the phone runs on Android (4.4 KitKat if you really want to know) and is powered by a 2.3 Ghz Qualcomm Snapdragon 801 quad core processor, has an internal memory of 64 GB and a 4.7-inch sapphire crystal display that is resistant to scratches. Other features include a 13 megapixel Hasselblad camera with twin focus and dual LED flash, a frontal 2.1 mp camera and a 2,275 mAh lithium-ion battery that provides around 15 hours of talk time or 380 hours of standby.
The phone’s case is made of titanium and is covered by special leather with a manually stitched diamond pattern. The leather’s color is called “Newmarket Tan” and is specific to Bentley, being available for Bentley interiors. Just like with Bentley engines, the case features the signature of the person who built the specific unit, because no high-end phone would be complete without manual assembly. Of course.
