Chinese firm turns out 24K gold plated Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus

Chinese firm turns out 24K gold plated Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus
Just a couple of days ago, we told you that Microsoft was rolling out in Europe, Asia and Africa, gold versions of the Nokia Lumia 930 and Nokia Lumia 830. But you don't have to be a Windows Phone fan to sport a smartphone with gold highlights. Chinese company NavJack is offering the Apple iPhone 6 and Apple iPhone 6 Plus with 24K gold plating.

The gold plating wraps around the two iPhone models, and is even found inside the Touch ID embedded home button. The back cover appears to be a gold plated carbon fiber material. And what would a special gold plated version of the iPhone be without a special box to go with it? While you can be assured that these units will be priced at a premium to the untouched iPhone 6 and iPhone 6 Plus, NavJack has not yet put a definitive price on these gold plated models.

While we enjoyed the contrast between the black rear cover of the gold Lumia 930 Golden Collector’s Edition and its gold frame, these gold plated iPhones are a bit more gaudy when viewed from the back.


Thanks for the tip!

Which is saying a lot since the original is ridiculously ugly.

That's why Apple only sold 69M iphones last quarter :(

So? Sales isn't the basis of anything... For starters VW outsold Ferrari by 100000 to 1, what does that tell you?

It tells me that your analogies suck. Don't ever do car analogies again. There are so many flaws in your analogy that it might blow your little mind once I start explaining. Not going to bother though so carry on.

...Oh what the heck, I'll bite. For starters, it tells me that the absurd majority of VW buyers can't afford a Ferrari. MEANWHILE, anyone who buys an iPhone can afford to buy ANY other smartphone, since iPhones are the most expensive phones on the market. I don't know why I'm bothering to explain this to you, but oh what the heck, it's Saturday and I'm not doing anything else right now. Your example is based entirely on pricing discrepency, yet you're trying to use it to explain consumer taste in design. As if that isn't ridiculous enough, you then go and make the less expensive car analogous to the more expensive smartphone. Try again when I can get a new Ferrari for $20,000.

How stupid are you? iPhone is the Ferrari of cellphones. It is the most expensive cellphone and it sells more than a lot. So?????

How dare you say that it is ugly if the original is already ugly.. You should say that gold is uglier than the ugly gold iP6.

How do you electroplate carbon fiber? Something doesn't add up to me.

A gold plated iPhone is more close to the price Apple asks for such a device.

This doesn't seem to be a product you actually can use, as pure gold is horrible in terms of physical wear and tear, maybe if its aluminum with gold leaves or such on it, and then a protective coating over them so they won't wear down..that might work

You mean the back phone design is horrible? Fact.
