Perpetual gilder Goldgenie will be applying their gold and platinum platings to the Samsung Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 edge, but getting one will cost you dearly.
Samsung announced back at Mobile World Congress their newest flagship devices, the Galaxy S6 along with its curved sibling the Galaxy S6 edge. Both devices will be available in White Pearl, Black Sapphire and Gold Platinum versions, while the Galaxy S6 will have a Blue Topaz variant and the Galaxy S6 edge will have a Green Emerald. If these colors aren't quite luxurious enough for you, Goldgenie hopes that their gold- and platinum-plated version will win you over.
Goldgenie will be offering both the Galaxy S6 as well as the Galaxy S6 edge in three new different platings: 24K Gold, Rose Gold, and Platinum. In the past we have seen Goldgenie on the HTC One M8 as well as on the HTC One M7 prior to that.
Preorders begin through Goldgenie starting March 20 through April 7 for £1664 excluding VAT (around US$2500). Shipping for the first batch of orders is expected to be 14 to 21 days after Samsung's April 10 launch date and the device will be presented in a luxury cherry oak display case. We don't yet know how much the standard Galaxy S6 is going to cost, and we're sure the Galaxy S6 edge will demand a premium over it, but somehow we doubt they'll approach Goldgenie's gilded prices.
