When you have extra cash to throw around, you might as well rock the latest and greatest smartphone on the planet with style. The iPhone isn't the only one getting the gold-plated treatment, and we have the Samsung Galaxy S4 wrapped in Gold, Platinum, or Rose Gold for you below. Sadly it'll cost you some serious coin so you better start saving your pennies now.
This isn't the first time we've seen ridiculously priced luxury smartphones. Just like a watch, some people will pay the premium. Lamborghini has a few Android phones, and the company VERTU offers a few costing upwards of $10,000 USD. We have good news though, the gold-plated Galaxy S4 will only run you a little over $2,600 if you're interested.
Even the folks from TAG Heuer offer a few smartphones topping $4,000 and beyond. It's a bit ridiculous if you ask me, but we figured you'd all like to give it a look. The company GoldGenie is responsible for making Samsung's flagship Galaxy S4 gold as you see it today, but sadly they appear to be sold out at the moment.
So what will that £1700 get you besides a gold-plated Galaxy S 4? You can choose the white or black version of the phone as your base, then it'll come with 16GB of storage and the usual quad-core processor under the hood. The device is SIM unlocked, and will probably have a substantial increase in weight. Your device will be worth its weight in gold.
Each unit also comes in a specially designed Limited edition Cherry Oak finished collectors box, so that should totally make it worth the purchase. More details can be found below.
