Now, Land Rover is pushing this to the next level with the upcoming release of a Land Rover smartphone. See what this exciting new foray will entail.

The New Land Rover Smartphone

To help increase the appeal of its already stellar technologies, Land Rover is taking a new step by teaming with the Bullitt Group consumer electronics company to develop and launch a new line of smartphones. The Land Rover director of licensing and branded goods weighed in with a statement on the partnership: “Incorporating iconic Land Rover design and innovative technology into the mobile phone sector with Bullitt Group presents an exciting challenge and fantastic opportunity to take the brand into a new dimension.” Weaver went on to add that the partnership will add a number of applications made to reflect and enhance the Land Rover brand and product values.

Land Rover Builds Fully Connected SUVs

The current Land Rover lineup already comes with full smartphone integration and advanced technologies via the Land Rover InControl infotainment and touchscreen interface. InControl allows you to access your favorite smartphone apps, make hands-free calls and text messages, access navigation, monitor your vehicle from afar, and locate your vehicle when it’s stolen, all on a high-resolution touchscreen with an easily navigable user interface.
