If there were a prize for color of the year, rose gold would be the 2015 champion. Ever since Apple released the rose gold iPhone 6s, every other manufacturer has been quick to launch their products in the coveted 'rose gold' variant. The color itself has somewhat of an identity crisis, ranging from the everyone-knows-it's-pink-but-let's-not-call-it-pink tone on the iPhone to the not-pink-at-all gradient of the ZTE Blade S7.
The newly announced rose gold Huawei Watch falls on the latter end of that spectrum, with plenty of gold and no traces of pink at all. Read More
Gold phones are a thing these days, but you won't be able to get Google's latest flagship in gold unless you happen to be in Japan. Odds are that you aren't, so that's a bummer. The gold version of the Nexus 6P is a special edition, and it will only be sold via the Japanese Google Store. Read More
Samsung announced a couple days ago that the gold Galaxy S5 will come to all major US carriers by May 30th, but the phone has already popped up on AT&T's site. There it goes for $199.99 with a two-year contract, various monthly payments with an AT&T Next plan, or $649.99 outright. The name, Copper Gold, sounds like a currency stuck somewhere between a penny and something of actual value*, but it describes the color well.
The Galaxy S4 Mini is also now available with the carrier, and it's shipping in two shades. While we wouldn't blame any of you for expecting them to be black and white, this time we're actually looking at black and pink. Read More
Earlier today, T-Mobile announced that it would start selling the gold Galaxy S5 on May 30th. As it turns out, this is the launch date for all of the major carriers in the US. Come the end of this month, a blinged out version of the S5 will be available from the likes of AT&T, Sprint, US Cellular, and Verizon as well.
With a simultaneous release across so many carriers, this isn't about exclusivity. This is about providing the masses with a better sense of style. Yeah, the phone's still made of plastic, but just look at that color. Nothing says something about a person the way gold does. Read More
We've steered clear of many of the rumored photos of the upcoming LG flagship refresh, if only because they weren't very good or very clear. But the latest spy shots from GSM Arena look like the real deal: an "LG G3" that brings the company's top-of-the-line phone back in a bigger and more evolved form. Oh, and it's gold. Very, very gold.
Compared to the international version of the G2, this phone looks a little bigger and less rounded, and the front façade has been given an overhaul with a case-colored insert beneath the glass screen. It looks a little odd, especially after LG has pushed so hard for vertical symmetry - it brings to mind some of HTC's "chin" designs. Read More
While photos of upcoming flagships from Samsung and other major manufacturers remain elusive, hardware leaks from HTC have been coming in steadily for the last few weeks. The latest and certainly greatest comes from the indefatigable Evleaks, who posted a full press photo/render of the HTC M8 earlier this morning. Evleaks says it will be called "The All New HTC One," foregoing any kind of sequel moniker.
The most striking thing about this press render is that the entire phone is colored gold, drawing indisputable comparisons to Apple's "champagne" iPhone 5s color option. Read More
White and black. Black and white. Every new flagship phone seems to offer these choices before anything else - you never get, for example, a phone launching exclusively in neon green. Today Samsung is officially expanding its offering of Galaxy Note 3 colors to bring the line a little bit of high-class luster. You'll soon be able to purchase the Note 3 in Rose Gold White, Rose Gold Black, and Merlot Red colors.
Those first two options are really just accents on the standard black and white bodies - yes, the phone is still made of plastic. It looks like the "Rose Gold" addition will just swap out the plastic bezel pieces for a copper-gold painted version on standard black and white. Read More
The HTC One is a beautiful device. At a time when most Android phones are made of plastic, HTC betted on aluminum for its flagship device. The handset just exudes style and class, but there is something it's missing. It screams premium, but it doesn't quite say ... elite. If only it were made of gold. Now that would be a quality device. While we can't expect HTC of all companies to have the visionary mindset necessary to deliver such a product, the fine folks over at Goldgenie understand class. They have produced an HTC One available in 24ct gold. Read More
