Samsung goes gold with the Galaxy S 4

Samsung has gone gold. Well, specifically, they have gone gold with the Galaxy S 4. Coming by way of the Samsung Mobile Arabia Twitter account, we are seeing the announcement for the new Galaxy S 4 Gold Edition. The announcement comes along with a bit about how “elegance is a touch of Gold” and about how this handset will bring a “style that’s uniquely yours.”

That being said, aside from the few images and the few teaser lines that were posted, the details are on the light side. For one, we have yet to see anything suggesting that Samsung would have the Gold Edition Galaxy S 4 available on a global scale. This could be a release that stays in the Middle East. Needless to say, even we cannot help but notice the timing. After all, it wasn’t all that long ago when Apple came forward with the gold iPhone 5s.

HTC One Developer Edition Receiving Android 4.3 This Week
