With the release of the Apple iPhone and its gold case, it made many wonder what Samsung was going to do in responding to what Apple had released. It seems that it was very quick that a gold Samsung Galaxy S4 was being talked about all over the web. Some were questioning the timing of the announcement by Samsung as trying to steal thunder away from Apple. That is exactly what so many companies try to accomplish in efforts to promoting their products, so we can let that conversation continue with others. All of this was the result of an announcement and posts from Samsung Gulf in the Arab Emirates. It is limited on the information which we are seeing, but Samsung is putting it out there.
The big question regarding the Samsung Gulf announcement and the posting of the phone on their site is the bigger question of when others might see the Gold Samsung Galaxy S4? Since this is in the Middle East, there is a limited market for it. One of the key differences between what Apple is selling and the Gold Samsung Galaxy S4 is the distribution of the Gold. While Apple has place it all around the handset, the Samsung Galaxy S4 Gold only has it as trim around the phone. And the back is still the black plastic that many are disappointed with.
There is still the question of when Samsung might be making this version of the Galaxy S4 available to the masses all over the world. We have seen the US not receiving new smartphones from Samsung as the first and here is another example of that. So, when might we expect to see the Gold version of the Samsung Galaxy S4? At the moment, there is no information as to when that might be happening. And there is no guarantee that it will in fact happen. There is a lot of unknowns here.
Another unknown is the price which we might be seeing Samsung and wireless carriers charge for something like this. You could compare it to the iPhone 5, but it has so much more gold being displayed. We can hope that Samsung will not charge too much of a premium for purchasing one of these to their loyal followers.
In the mean time, you can check out the Samsung Gulf’s Facebook page to see what they have posted. Or the Samsung Gulf’s web site. There is not much more information here other than what could easily be said to be nothing more than a tease to all of us who love our Samsung devices.
