Vertu, the luxury mobile phone manufacturer that was spun off from Nokia in 2012, has announced it has entered a five-year partnership deal with Bentley.

As part of the deal, Vertu and Bentley will work together on a handset slated for an October release. The deal is likely to be aimed at attracting those who appreciate sophistication and craftmanship.

With regards to the device’s spec-sheet, nothing has been confirmed. But it will have an emphasis on design and integration with Bentley’s vehicles. A further four devices are planned as part of the partnership.
