BlackBerry has announced an elite smartphone meant to compete with Vertu’s niche market. The Porsche Design P’9982 is a product of collaboration between the Canada-based smartphone maker and the German sportscar manufacturer. It runs on a customized version of BlackBerry 10.2 OS.

The gadget has the same technical specs as the BlackBerry Z10, except that this device has 64GB of internal storage. The Porsche Design P’9982 also features a satin-finished, stainless steel frame, along with hand-wrapped Italian leather back cover that can be replaced with other color options such as cream, burgundy, and blue (sold separately). There is also a limited-edition model that is hand-wrapped with genuine crocodile leather. The luxury smartphone comes with a pair of premium stereo headset, a polishing cloth, high-speed USB cable, and an international charging kit.

“Once again the collaboration with BlackBerry has led to a device that implements our Iconic Style credo without compromises,” Juergen Gessler, CEO of the Porshe Design Group, says in a recent press release. “With the P’9982 we extend our range of modern luxury smartphones and establish ourselves as a market leader in this segment.”

This is actually the second time BlackBerry develops a smartphone for Porsche Design. The first one is the P’9981, which was launched two years ago, and is actually a luxury version of the BlackBerry 9900.

The Porsche Design P’9982 is now available at Porsche Design stores, as well as select retailers such as Harrods, Carphone Warehouse, and Selfridges. It comes with a $2,400 price tag.
