LG to follow Apple and HTC with a gold G2 smartphone
After Apple and HTC released gold editions of their flagship smartphones (iPhone 5S and HTC One), it looks like LG is also preparing a gold-colored version of its high-end G2.

ePrice spotted a gold LG G2 in Taiwan, where the handset might be available starting the coming months. Prices won’t be different from the black and white versions of the smartphone: $496 (14,900 TWD) for the 16GB model, and $562 (16,900 TWD) for the 32GB one. At the moment, it’s unclear if LG is planning to introduce the golden G2 in more markets.

Released around the world in the second half of 2013, the LG G2 may have reached 3 million units sold in December. It ran Android 4.2 Jelly Bean at launch, and it’s already getting Android 4.4 KitKat - albeit only in South Korea for now.

While the G2 remains LG’s flagship smartphone, the company is seemingly getting ready to introduce a Quad HD successor to it (possibly called LG G3) later this year. It may also launch a G Pro 2 (GD830?). Until the newer handsets are confirmed, who’s interested in getting this golden G2?
