Luxury device maker Goldgenie, based out of London and Dubai, has a history of platinum-, diamond- and gold-plating high-end devices. The company also offers free worldwide shipping service. Goldgenie is now selling glittery 24-karat gold-plated Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge variants.
After introducing the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge toward the end of February, Samsung is gearing up to release the devices in the U.S. As it turns out, Goldgenie has already received the S7 units and it has customized those units with gold exterior.
Goldgenie’s Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge come with a “sparkly golden dust effect” on the slightly curved back. The 24-karat gold can also be seen on the frame, buttons, camera cavity and flash rim. However, the front of the device is in original black color. Corning’s Gorilla Glass finish has also been left intact in order to protect the screen.
Speaking of price, the 64 GB version of gold Galaxy S7 will set the buyers back by 2,097 pounds (about $2,977), whereas the gold Galaxy S7 Edge can be purchased for 2,297 pounds (roughly $3261). Apart from selling the customized gold S7 lineup, this luxury brand also offers to gold-plate the units already purchased by customers, GSM Arena noted.
This gold variant will apparently come with a luxury Cherry Oak box and Goldgenie will install Total Armour Protection and Military Grade Encryption for texts and phone calls. Not to forget, the Galaxy S7 already comes with IP68 rating for dust- and water-resistance.
