Ofcourse it will cause the Arabs there are filthy rich.

Unfortunately it is the minority elite that are filthy rich. Most ordinary arabs are very poor and non arabs that were born or live there are even worse off, thanks to rampant racism.

I wonder if the phone were dead after a couple of years, can the gold be 'taken off'? or the owner will just throw the phone with the gold to dust bin

It makes sense given the market. Especially since Saudi Arabia is buying up a large portion of the new gold from mines. Only makes sense to make what people will buy.
I still don't get the whole issue of materials used. Most phones I see have cases on them, so who cares about what you can't see? I have never seen a metal case in person.
