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.
