Samsung has gone gold. Well, specifically, they have gone gold with the Galaxy S 4. Coming by way of the Samsung Mobile Arabia Twitter account, we are seeing the announcement for the new Galaxy S 4 Gold Edition. The announcement comes along with a bit about how “elegance is a touch of Gold” and about how this handset will bring a “style that’s uniquely yours.”
That being said, aside from the few images and the few teaser lines that were posted on social media, the details are on the light side. For one, we have yet to see anything suggesting that Samsung would have the Gold Edition Galaxy S 4 available on a global scale. This could be a release that stays in the Middle East. Needless to say, even we cannot help but notice the timing. After all, it wasn’t all that long ago when Apple came forward with the gold iPhone 5s.

We will certainly keep an eye out for any additional details. Namely, in terms of the pricing and release dates. That aside, at least those who may have been jealous of iOS users that have a gold colored handset can now try to score one of these gold colored Galaxy S 4 models. Otherwise, in addition to the gold on the back, it looks like the handset will be sporting either brown or pink on the front side.
Aside from these new colors, the handset should still be sporting the same hardware. Basically, that is to say you can expect a handset with a 5-inch 1080p display, quad-core processor, 2GB of RAM, 2600 mAh battery, 2 megapixel front-facing camera and 13 megapixel rear-facing camera. In addition, the Galaxy S 4 is running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and sporting the Samsung TouchWiz user interface on top.
