We’ve seen companies apply gold plating to smartphones in the past, but one company that stands out above the rest is Goldgenie. The company has applied its gold and platinum plating to devices like the HTC One M7, M8, Apple iPhone 6 and even a number of different BlackBerry devices. Next up on Goldgenie’s list is the Samsung Galaxy S6 and S6 Edge.
Samsung’s two newest devices, announced at MWC a few weeks ago, feature aluminum edges and shiny backplates made out of glass. Both devices are already being offered in Gold Platinum (among other colors), but if you’d prefer something a tad more luxurious, Goldgenie is offering up each device in 24K Gold, Rose Gold, or Platinum finishes. The company says your new smartphone will be at your doorstep around 14 to 21 days after the device’s April 10th global launch date.
Pre-orders will be held through Goldgenie from March 20th until April 7th, and each device will run you a hefty £1,664 (~$2,453 US). Also, don’t expect your new investment to be shipped to your doorstep in its original box. Goldgenie will present the device to you in its own luxury cherry oak display case.
One thing to note: if you’re seriously thinking about purchasing one of these, you should know that Goldgenie plates each device in metal. We’re not sure how the metal plating will affect wireless charging on the device, but we’re sure folks who spend $2,500 on a gold-plated smartphone aren’t buying it for the features.
