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.

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
