Samsung adds two brand-new colors to Galaxy Note5 line-up

_Samsung's Galaxy Note5 phablet is one of the hottest properties in the mobile industry. An on-paper beast, Samsung has sought to bring more to the table than raw power in recent times, and as such, the Note5 follows the premium design language of the Galaxy S6. With the look of a smartphone being of such apparent importance, Sammy will soon offer two new color variants in its native South Korea. Accompanying the pre-existing flavors of Black Sapphire, Peal White and Platinum Gold, shoppers will also be able to snap up a Silver Titanium or Pink Gold option should they so wish.
The craze for gold handsets was probably sparked by the 2013 introduction of the iPhone 5s. Since then, a large number of flagship devices have offered at least one shade of gold from the start. Samsung is known for adding new colors further down the line, though, and the new Silver Titanium and Pink Gold editions add a little more by way of choice.
With Apple having just introduced another homage to precious metal with the Rose Gold iPhone 6s, it seems that Samsung doesn't want to miss out either. Pink Gold should appeal to those who like the color but would rather own a Note than an iPhone, and by the look of things, the pink Note5 is a tad brighter than its Apple-made counterpart. Meanwhile, the more traditional titanium-esque finish should suit those who prefer a more understated look.
The Silver Titanium model will be available in 32 GB and 64 GB capacities for 899,800 won ($800) and 965,800 won ($860) respectively. The Pink version will roll out with 64 GB of real estate and bear the same price tag as the 64-gig silver version.
Both will be available in South Korea by October 23rd, with the silver model likely to arrive a little earlier.

Samsung had Rose Gold devices before Apple. Didn't you know that? The Note 3 was available in some markets in Rose Gold. The original Galaxy Gear also was available in Rose Gold which is the color I had. It is amazing how other do something first and you knwo nothing about it, but only when Apple does it. You guys are more than a joke. Just plain old "stupid" works for you guys. ALL THE NOTE 3 COLORS -http://www1.pcmag.com/media/im

Yes, 'cause that's what they've been doing with the entire Galaxy Note line; releasing color variants, including rose gold and pink, in different markets outside of the main galaxy unpacked event...just typical mindless iSheeps that now think Apple owns the color after they finally implement it years later.

I would rather Samsung brought the emerald green from the s6 to the note or some other original color. They don't need to follow the footsteps of other companies cough cough Apple. But at least it looks pretty good.

Good for Samsung. The Ladies will love it. Apple's phone is also pink but you guys can keep calling it Rose Gold.

Just FYI - Rose Gold comes in several tones. Here are the 2 most popular ones used for Jewelry: Rose Gold 1 -http://www.mdcdiamonds.com/ima
Rose Gold 2 -https://38.media.tumblr.com/99 a2586f02da88248adff4fe43bb6668
Now that you have been educated you see Apple's isn't a wrong color. Just a more feminine shade. /tumblr_inline_mr3twaPODw1qz4r gp.jpg

Pink Gold = Rose Gold = PINK. Everyone needs to get over themselves.

Pink Gold = Apple "Rose Gold" = PINK. Real rose gold is very different from pink.
