Do money and taste really go together? The newest smartphone from luxury brand Vertu suggests otherwise. The Wall Street Journal brings us word that Vertu’s recently launched Signature Touch flagship smartphone features “a digital camera by Hasselblad, global Wi-Fi from iPass, Dolby Digital Plus virtual surround sound and a personalized concierge service.” Oh, and it will also set you back $14,100. Yes, you read that correctly.

Other specs for the device include a 2.1-megapixel front-facing camera, 64GB of storage, a 2,275mAh battery and Android 4.4 KitKat. You can also choose from a wide variety of materials for the phone’s casing, including the “Seaspray Lizard” casing pictured above, as well as “Jet Leather” and “Jet Alligator,” which as you may have guessed is made from alligator skin.

So if you have thousands of dollars to spend on a smartphone, the Signature Touch looks like it could be the device for you… or you could just buy an iPhone, a Galaxy S5 or an HTC One and use the money you saved toward getting a nice car.
