Samsung Galaxy S4 Gold Edition confirmed for the Middle East

Samsung confirmed the first gold-colored Android handset to compete with Apple's iPhone 5S "champagne," namely the Samsung Galaxy S4 Gold Edition.

Apple released the "champagne" iPhone 5S only a week ago, but it seems this color choice had a decisive impact on the volume of sales during the first full weekend on the market of the new iPhones. Even Apple was caught by surprise a the scarcity of the gold-colored models pushed eBay prices for such items over the $10,000 mark.

Now the time has come for Samsung to take things to a new level and release more than just golden handsets, using both brown and pink for its Gold Edition Galaxy S4 handsets that will hit the United Emirates soon. While Apple only offers a single golden iPhone model, Samsung has two Gold Edition smartphones - one combines gold with pink and the other uses brown.

Samsung's color choices are not random, as the pink iPhone 5C accounts for 46 percent of the new iPhone 5S and 5C handsets sold so far. Brown is also an interesting choice, but sale numbers will say it all as soon as these two new golden handsets get on the market.

Unfortunately, the release date and pricing of the United Emirates-exclusive handsets are both unknown but we will follow this topic and keep you posted.
