As much as we love all the connectivity features modern smartphones offer these days, we hate the way they all look the same, which is to say they all look like a black rectangle. That is why it is quite refreshing to see Vertu’s new Bentley mobile phone which has a unique and somewhat traditional design.
Officially called the “Vertu Signature for Bentley,” the new phone will make its formal debut at the Goodwood Festival of Speed this weekend and then at the Pebble Beach Concours d’Elegance before going on sale on September 18 at an absurdly high price.
Then again, all Vertu phones are highly collectible items handcrafted from the finest materials. The Bentley phone is even more special as it is inspired by the Bentley Mulsanne Speed and comes with unique finishes and exotic materials in its construction. But as always the coolest feature of any Vertu phone is the simple choice of ‘call’ or ‘text’. So if you are used to stuff like TouchWiz or SenseUI, stay away from these phone because they will drive you mad!
The Exclusive features of Vertu Signature for Bentley mobile phone include carbon fibre pillow on the Signature which shares a similar carbon weave design pattern to that on the Mulsanne Speed; polished stainless steel sides which offer a tactile knurled finish reminiscent of Bentley control knobs, and Beluga Black calf leather casing. You also get exclusive Bentley graphics and a Bentley Flying B Titanium emblem. Customers can choose the color of leather and stitching on the phone with over 2,300 different combinations. If your phone needs some replacement parts, such as a rigid flex pcb, you can conveniently find them online now.
