Gold Samsung Galaxy S5 launching in the US on May 30 via all major carriers
Samsung just announced that the gold version of its Galaxy S5 flagship smartphone will be released in the US on May 30. Starting that day, you’ll be able to grab a golden S5 from AT&T, Sprint, T-Mobile, U.S. Cellular, and Verizon. Apparently, the Verizon variant will be available only “through select indirect retailers”, so you might not find it in Verizon stores.

The gold Samsung Galaxy S5 should have the same price as the black and white versions that are already available to purchase: $199.99 on contract. Naturally, its features are unchanged, including Android 4.4 KitKat, a 5.1-inch 1080p Super AMOLED display, fingerprint recognition sensor, heart rate monitor, 16MP rear camera, quad-core Snapdragon 801 processor, and a 2,800 mAh battery.

According to Samsung, the golden Galaxy S5 could make a “perfect gift” for new graduates, or for “the fashionable dad who wants to add a little swagger to his wardrobe” (since Father’s Day is coming up in mid-June). Well, if the gold S5 is for you, or for anyone close, now you know that it's coming soon.

Just because a devices use aluminum, it does not make it better or 'premium'...

Hey guys, is it really happened that the article about "LG G3 poster photographed in the wild, confirms Snapdragon 801 is under the hood" is deleted from this site?

Why is everyone releasing gold phones all of the sudden? EMPHASIS: ALL OF THE SUDDEN Another side note: /sarcasm

Well I don't usually agree with your comments, but one can't deny that Apple brought this trend back to life, surely they aren't the 1st to produce gold colored phones, but still they are the ones behind this trend now

The funny thing is that I much prefer their version of gold to the others..
