Signature Bentley: Newest Vertu Bentley Luxury Phone 2015 with Keypad

Vertu Signature for Bentley 3

The newest member of the Bentley Vertu series phones has been announced and it comes with a keypad. Unlike the first Bentley Vertu phone that boasted of full touch screen with massive internal memory and super fast pocessor, the second Bentley phone has a very old school design. Vertu has made the second and newest Bentley phone in the luxury phone maker’s very popular ‘Signature phone’ series. The new Vertu Bentley luxury phone is called ‘Signature for Bentley’ and was announced at the Goodwood Festival of Speed.

Vertu Signature for Bentley

Signature Bentley phone is the second device built by Vertu, in the 5 year partnership, between the two brands. The newest entrant does not run on Android OS. The primary focus here is on the design. Signature for Bentley is inspired by the Bentley Mulsanne Speed, the renowned car maker’s pinnacle model.

Design cues drawn from the Mulsanne Speed include the carbon fibre pillow on the Signature Vertu phone. This pillow shares a similar carbon weave design pattern to that on the Mulsanne Speed. The sleek phone is given polished, stainless steel sides which offer a tactile knurled finish reminiscent of Bentley control knobs. Bentley 2015 phone is wrapped in Beluga Black calf leather. It is sourced from the same tannery used by the world-leading automotive company, as is the phone case which is also embellished with a Bentley Flying B Titanium emblem.

This instantly recognisable Bentley Flying B logo is inscribed on the front of the phone, adorning the sapphire face piece below the key pad.

Vertu Signature for Bentley can also be customised. Customers can match their phone and case to their Bentley car leather and stitching or create something of their own design from 2,300 possible combinations. Owners can choose from the eight bestselling Bentley leather and stitching colours; Hotspur, Beluga, Linen, Newmarket tan, Burnt Oak, Fireglow, Imperial Blue or Saddle. Black metal or sapphire keys can be complemented by a select key, chosen from one of six gemstones; White Diamond, Black Diamond, Blue Sapphire, Orange Sapphire, Ruby or Tsavorite. A personal engraving on the back plate provides the finishing touch.

The newest Vertu Bentley luxury phone is a very basic phone. If you loved the first Vertu Bentley phone with Qualcomm Snapdragon processors and 64 Gigs memory, then it is very unlikely that you will like the new one! It does not come under the smartphone category, because of its limited features.  Focused on voice calls and high-quality sound reproduction, Signature Bentley phone, uses refined technology to deliver simply superb acoustics. Whether you’re making or receiving calls, Signature offers crystal-clear voice clarity, while side-mounted speakers, enhanced with stereo widening software, ensure impressively rich and accurate sound.

Vertu Signature Bentley will be available for pre-order from today. Vertu Bentley Luxury phone 2015 price is £14,500 or€17,500 or INR 1449902 ( for Beluga Black Calf Leather ). Vertu’s return to the old school phone design must be for a good reason.
