Galaxy S4 Gets Gold Plated – Only Costs $2,600

June 14, 2013 - Written By Alexander Maxham

If you do have the cash to throw around, why not buy one of the best Android phones ever and get it gold plated? Well if you have about $2,600 burning a hole in your pocket, then you can get yourself a Galaxy S4 that’s gold plated. You can also get one wrapped in Platinum or Rose Gold.

This is not the first time we’ve seen ridiculously priced luxury smartphones hanging around. Just like a car, some will pay a pretty hefty premium to get their favorite Android phone. In fact, Lamborghini has a few Android phones and the company VERTU offers a few costing upwards of 10 grand. Luckily this Galaxy S4 is much cheaper, but still insanely priced.


TAG Heuer even has a few smartphones topping $4,000 and beyond. It is ridiculous, but we know our readers look to drool over things like this, so we thought we should post it. The company GoldGenie is responsible for making Samsung’s flagship Galaxy S4 gold as you see it today, but they are sold out right now. Which is actually quite surprising considering the hefty price tag it holds.

Besides getting a gold-plated Galaxy S4, the $2,600 price tag also gets you the choice of a black or white version of the phone and 16GB of internal storage. Along with the normal specs we already know from the Galaxy S4. The device is unlocked so you can run it on virtually any GSM carrier worldwide. It probably won’t be light at all.


Each unit also comes in a Limited edition Cherry Oak finished box for the collector inside. So does that make this worth the purchase? In my opinion, no. But hey some people want a gold-plated phone. I’m just not one of them. How many of you have this kind of cash laying around?
