Known for Gold, Diamond and Platinum-plating flagship devices, Karalux is back with luxury versions of Samsung’s Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge.
The Vietnam-based company has apparently anodized the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge smartphones and the engineers apparently put in 6 continuous hours passing 10 different stages to perfect the Gold-plated design. The 10 stages include “surface treatment, surface activation and creating different precious metal layers and coating a 24K gold layer.”
However, unlike the Gold treatment given to last year’s Galaxy S6 series and Galaxy Note 5, Karalux engineers reportedly spent more hours on the S7 series, because Samsung moved to A6000-grade aluminum from the original A7000-grade metal, according to Karalux’s technical director Quang Tu.
The lengthy process of Gold-plating the new flagship and the edge-display-clad sibling should also be attributed to the complicated disassembling procedure specific to the S7 series.
To top it all off, Karalux engineers apparently coated a Nano layer over the surface of the Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 Edge. This process helps in keeping the Gold layer from eroding, in addition to making the exterior stronger.
International customers can also order Karalux’s custom-designed S7 variants. The company will apparently ship the device free of cost within two to seven days from the date of purchase.
