When it comes to releasing a smartphone, many manufacturers are now more than open to actually release a device in different colors, since they recognize that the masses do have different tastes when it comes to the kinds of color that they would like to own while talking away. Samsung’s flirtation with a gold colored smartphone has always dealt with high end models, such as this Verizon-bound Galaxy S5. However, it looks as though Samsung might be lowering their standards, so to speak, by introducing a gold-colored Galaxy Grand 2.
First announced in January earlier this year, the Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 arrived in either black or white back then, costing approximately $300 if you were to pick it up in the market today. In fact, Samsung claimed that the Galaxy Grand 2 happens to be one of the best selling smartphones from Samsung this year, which could be why they have decided to give the handset a “second wind” in the market by draping it in a shade of gold.
This gold variant will be limited to select Asian markets, knowing how well these markets respond to a gold colored phone, never mind that it is not actual gold in the first place. It will roll out in the likes of Malaysia and India, but other than the external color change, everything else underneath the hood will remain the same. If you happen to live in the two countries mentioned, would you settle for a new shade?
