It has been quite a while since a new device arrived under the Google Play Edition moniker. Devices released under this program were sold unlocked and for full price, customers got unlocked bootloaders as well as the assurance that after Nexus devices GPE units would be next in line for major Android OS updates. Samsung’s only entry in the GPE program was the Galaxy S4 and according to a new report the Android 5.1 update for this device is coming soon.
Apple is the only company out there that’s selling a solid gold smartwatch. The gold Apple Watch is understandably very expensive, it can cost more than $10,000 and that’s not what the average user is going to spend on a smartwatch. This is probably why only a handful of Apple stores are selling this model any way since the company knows only selected customers will purchase it. The company isn’t offering a gold color option for people who don’t want to pay for the precious metal but there’s a company out there that’s offering a gold-plated Apple Watch for a fraction of the cost.
