Samsung UAE tweeted an image of the gold edition of the Galaxy S4 that will soon be available for sale in the oil-rich region.
Apple’s champagne-colored iPhone 5S made its debut two weeks ago, and if analyst estimates are correct, is outselling every other color variant three to one. The champagne-colored iPhone 5S is selling so fast that Apple has had to commission a new batch of devices already.
Looks like Samsung is following suit by launching a gold edition of the Galaxy S4. The image, tweeted by the South Korean manufacturer’s Gulf account, shows off two variants of the device. One is a Gold Brown edition that features gold accents around the sides of the device, while the front and back feature brown, and a Gold Pink version which comes with a pink colored front and back. Both devices will feature the same hardware as the international version of the Galaxy S4, which includes a 1.9 GHz Snapdragon 600 SoC, 5-inch full-HD screen, 2 GB RAM, 13MP camera and Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean on Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
It is unlikely these devices will be sold outside the Gulf, but the move clearly shows that Samsung is still trying to emulate Apple.
