Bentley and Vertu Sign Five Year Partnership for Luxury Smartphones
This is the second time Vertu has collaborated with an opulent car retailer. Beginning in 2005, the phone company partnered with Italian car maker Ferrari to produce two versions of the Vertu Ascent with a Ferrari twist. The cost for the specialty phone was $25,000.
The first Vertu for Bentley phone will be released in October of this year. A price has not yet been made public, but Vertu’s last phone, the Signature Touch, cost a jaw-dropping $11,300 for a basic model. The four consecutive phones do not have specific release dates, but will roll out over the next five years.
