We are having a new gold rush here: the new gold iPhone 5s turned out to be a success. The vast majority of iPhone 5s buyers were after the gold version, which, unfortunately, was available in limited supply only. So how are competitors reacting to this? If you ask Samsung, their answer is ready: by introducing the gold Galaxy S4.
The new devices were announced on Wednesday by Samsung Gulf. So for anyone who is interested in obtaining a shiny new gold model: it unfortunately runs Android and has a less responsive screen than the iPhone 4, but that’s not an issue if you get used to it.
Anyways, the models feature the same plastic case, and they will be available in two colour options: gold brown and gold pink.
But Samsung is just one of the companies following Apple’s lead: HTC is also rumoured to be releasing a gold version of its flagship One model, AppleInsider highlights.
What’s interesting here is that both Samsung and HTC have faced accusations of copying Apple’s product design. I would have been silent if they had announced the new products before the gold iPhone 5s launch, but considering that the model sold out within 10 minutes of Apple starting to accept orders through its online store, Samsung’s and HTC’s move certainly raises an eyebrow.
