Take a look at the Ubuntu Edge. It should work extremely well with Qt.

I've played around with Qt on both BlackBerry and Android devices. In my
opinion, BB is much easier to work with in this regard. The current tools
for Qt5 on Android are still very early and don't always behave
predictably. I also haven't been able to get much support for the Android
port of Qt, whereas with BB most of my questions/issues were addressed
pretty quickly.

Ubuntu Touch and Sailfish (Jolla) will also use Qt natively, so I'd imagine
that using a phone running either of those two will also be straightforward
to work with.

Hardware wise, you usually get everything you need when you buy the phone;
the device and a USB cable. As far as I know, all companies except for
Apple provide their SDK without a fee. I use a Nexus 4 for my Android
testing and a Playbook for BlackBerry (though its recently been EOLd, so
you'd want to go with a BB10 device if you decide to buy another BB) and
both are pretty problem free in terms of deploying apps/testing etc.
