Not long after Truly Exquisite and Goldgenie, Karalux unveils its custom 24K gold-plated Samsung Galaxy S7 flagships.

Vietnamese gold-plating specialists Karalux strike again, this time by offering their custom 24K gold variants of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge flagships. Although they use the same anodization process employed to customize the Galaxy Note 5 and Galaxy S6 Edge+, some parts of the procedure are now longer because the latest Samsung flagships use A6000 grade aluminum and require extra-care when compared to the A7000-made Galaxy S6 lineup.

According to Karalux, turning a regular Galaxy S7 handset into a gold-plated one requires "6 continuous hours through 10 different stages, including surface treatment, surface activation and creating different precious metal layers and coating a 24K gold layer."  

As it usually happens with such custom-made, gold-plated handsets, the Karalux Galaxy S7 devices are not something anyone could easily afford. The Galaxy S7 with the Karalux gold plating costs roughly $1700 USD, while the Galaxy S7 Edge+ is priced at $1,930 USD. These prices include international shipping as well.

Although I have been writing about new software and hardware for almost a decade, I consider myself to be old school. I always enjoy listening to music on CD or tape instead of digital files and I will not even get into the touchscreen vs physical keys debate. However, I also enjoy new technology, as I now have the chance to take a look at the future every day. I joined the Notebookcheck crew back in 2013 and I have no plans to leave the ship anytime soon.
