Samsung counters iPhone 5S with a golden Galaxy S4

samsung

Two weeks after Apple's September 10th reveal of a champagne-colored iPhone, Samsung is launching its own golden phone in the shape of a new Gold Edition Galaxy S4. There are two options, Gold Pink or Gold Brown, which Samsung is proudly showing off on its United Arab Emirates social media outlets. It's doubtful that these handsets will make it to a global distribution — they look to be targeted at the same well-off demographic that might consider buying a handset like the Nokia Oro — but the important thing is that Samsung can now claim to also have a golden flagship product.

Thanks, Yousuf!

Update: Samsung has clarified that the first golden GS4 units arrived in stores on September 8th, therefore it technically preempted the golden iPhone by two days.
