It seems that the Apple iPhone 5s and the HTC One are not the only smartphones getting the gold treatment. An image revealing Samsung’s flagship smartphone, Galaxy S4 in Gold Brown and Gold Pink have been teased by Samsung Gulf on Facebook.
Additionally, the Samsung Arabia has teased the Galaxy S4 Gold Edition on Twitter. The tweet reads, “Introducing the new #GalaxyS4 Gold Edition – for a style that’s uniquely yours!”
At this point of time, there is no word about the Galaxy S4 Gold Edition’s price or availability details but it appears that the device would only hit selective markets that would include Gulf countries.
Under the hood we assume that the Galaxy S4 Gold Edition has similar specifications as the original variant.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 was globally launched back in March. However, the device landed in India only in April with a price tag of Rs. 41,500.
The device sports a 5-inch full-HD display with a resolution of 1080×1920 pixels, and pixel density of 441ppi. It is powered by 1.6GHz Exynos octa-core processor alongside 2GB of RAM and runs Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean. The Galaxy S4 sports a 13-megapixels rear shooter and a 2-megapixel one on the front.
The trend of gold variants of smartphones was reignited when Apple, famous for its understated colours on its mobile products, popularly announced a Gold iPhone 5s, which then proceeded to sell out. HTC followed suit, and announced a new version of the flagship smartphone, the One ‘Gold’ edition, last week. The HTC One Gold edition is a premium version of the flagship smartphone with a new colour addition of 24-carat gold – making it a much more luxury-geared offering, with a serious price tag.
