You can now pre-order gold-plated Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge devices

by: John DyeMarch 1, 2016


Having a top of the line smartphone still just a little bit ‘meh’ to you? Need a little extra glam to really feel like you’re making a serious purchase? If that’s the case, you might be elated to know that Truly Exquisite has just announced that pre-orders for their gold-plated variations of the Samsung Galaxy S7 and Galaxy S7 edge are going live.

That’s right. You can now fork over $2K+ to get your favorite Samsung flagship slickly plated in 24K gold. But really, this is the least expensive luxury version of the S7 series that Truly Exquisite is offering. If 24K gold isn’t quite ritzy enough, you can toss some extra cash into the deal to swing an 18K rose gold plating instead. And if that doesn’t do it for you, then throw even more money at your device to get the ultimate in lux: a platinum-plated S7.

The prices for these devices are as follows:

  • 24K Gold Galaxy S7 – £1700 (approx $2,380 USD)
  • 24K Gold Galaxy S7 Edge – £1800 (approx $2,495 USD)
  • Platinum Galaxy S7 – £1800 (approx $2,495 USD)
  • Platinum Galaxy S7 Edge – £1900 (approx $2,630 USD)
  • 18K Rose Gold Galaxy S7 – £1750 (approx $2,425 USD)
  • 18K Rose Gold Galaxy S7 Edge – £1850 (approx $2,562 USD)

In this economy, we’re certainly assuming this is a niche product that will appeal to a very particular clientele. After all, it’s one thing to pay a little extra to get luxury plating on something like an important ring or piece of jewelry, but smartphones only tend to ride around in our pockets for a few years before we swap them in for something more up-to-date.

Either way, what are your thoughts regarding these gold-plated Samsung Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge models? Something you might spring for, or a waste of money? Let us know your thoughts in the comments below!

    I’ll need a better picture than that to make my decision… not lol. But seriously better pic would be nice. with a better layout. Looks bad in the picture. (Bad graphic designer)

      You are aware that the rear is glass? :D
      The frame, the part they’re showing, is the part getting the plating.

    Isn’t illegal or something to use 24k gold in the USA? I don’t know if it counts when you import a product.

  • The Doctor

    I just preordered 14 platinum S7 edges just because.

  • Jonathan Kramer

    I wonder if the gold or platinum helps with the call quality.. anybody know? I was hoping they’d have some studded with sapphires and rubies myself.
