Gold-plated smartphones are not something new, but it sure is luxury. The Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge join the company's collection of 24K gold plated smartphones. Note that both smartphones feature Corning Gorilla Glass 4 glass panels in the front and at the back. It's the metallic frame hugging the two panels that gets the gold treatment along with the metal rim around the camera module.
The Karalux shop claims that it takes 3 hours for the engineers to pass the Galaxy S6 through 10 different stages to have it finally 24K gold layered. Not only that, the phone also gets an additional nano layer to prevent the gold plaint from being corroded.
Getting a 24K gold Galaxy S6 will cost you $400 (VND 8 million) + the regular price starting $685. So the total will start from $1100.
A 24k gold Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is now available for purchase in Vietnam. Every piece of metal in the device is coated in 24K Gold by local aficionados of the noble metal.
The process takes 4-5 hours of continuous work per unit and, according to a rough translation, costs about $1100 (VND 24 million) to make. The price doesn't include the cost of the Galaxy Note 4 itself, though, you'll have to spend an extra $900 (VND 19 million) for the phablet. You can check out the device on the Video Below.
