Gold Samsung Galaxy S5 is an exclusive in the U.K. for Vodafone
Gold has gone from being an investor's dream to becoming a smartphone owner's dream over the last year. Remember when we passed along to you the word that Apple was increasing production of the gold colored Apple iPhone 5s by 33% to meet heavy demand? And then a week later, Samsung accused its rival of copying the idea of offering a gold colored smartphone.

With gold colored top-shelf models getting consumers to reach for their, ahem, gold cards, Vodafone U.K. has announced an exclusive for the Samsung Galaxy S5 dressed in the color of gold. This will be an exclusive for the carrier in the region right from the April 11th release date. So if you are in the U.K. and have your heart set on the gold colored Galaxy S5, you know which carrier you will need to be a customer of.

The mobile operator will be taking pre-orders for Sammy's next flagship handset starting March 28th. With the exclusive color, Vodafone U.K. customers will have a total of four color options including Copper Gold, Charcoal Black, Electric Blue and Shimmering White. Which color would you pick?

Stop with your uneducated comments. Samsung had gold phones before the first iphone came out.
