Everyone knows that Bentley and Vertu are the pure definition of luxury. This third phone, the Signature Touch for Bentley, respects the two brands’ extravagant policy.

The device is based on Vertu’s latest smartphone and features two-tone Beluga and Hotspur Bentley leather, with Hotspur stitching, knurled side keys, a unique pillow rail and sound bar, as well as a 3D Bentley logo. A unique app allows customers to join the world of Bentley through one-of-a-kind events, VIP access and other special features that integrate the Signature Touch with the range of Bentley models.

It runs on Android’s latest 5.1 Lollipop and promises improved speed, clarity of image, and also an exquisite sound experience thanks to Dolby’s Digital Plus virtual surround sound. The owner will have access to Vertu’s entire portfolio of services, including Dedicated Concierge, Vertu LIFE, and Vertu Certainty.

Even if it’s not something you would want to happen, in case you lose your very expensive gizmo, you should know that the phone has the new Lost Phone service, which allows the owner to remotely lock and erase all data.

Because it had a resounding success on the previous Signature S for Bentley, Vertu’s Made to Order option is also available on this new smartphone. Thanks to this feature, customers can personalize their Signature Touch with the choice of eight leather colors and sixteen stitching options.

According to Kevin Rose, Bentley Board Member for Sales and Marketing, “[...]The Vertu for Bentley phones are designed and hand-made in England, personifying style, elegance and the modern perception of bespoke, underpinning by world-class technology and luxury performance.

This is the third phone these two companies have designed. The first was launched in October 2014, followed by a “voice-centric” mobile in September 2015.

The price has not been revealed yet, but knowing that the latest Signature for Bentley cost somewhere around €17,500 ($18,981.90), we’re expecting the price for this latest model to be higher.
