We often see companies offer gold-plated editions of smartphones for thousands more expensive than the phones’ market values, but the Samsung Galaxy S6 is different in that the front and rear are both covered in glass, leaving only the metal edges and the camera ring’s rim as suitable targets for gold plating. Even still, it makes for a nice looking effect that has the Samsung Galaxy S6 looking even better than it already does.

The process of gold plating takes the company just 3 hours as they take it through 10 steps to get a nice quality finish. A coating of unnoticeable nano film will preserve the plating and make sure it never rusts. You can contact the company directly at their website if you’re interested.

The "Google Phone" sounded too awesome to pass up, so I bought a G1. The rest is history. And yes, I know my name isn't Wilson.

    1. Or drug dealers.

      1. Or people who just happen to like the gold colour. God forbids that anyone actually like gold. I mean it’s not like anyone in the history of humanity ever liked gold right?

      Kidding! Do not plate your Edge in gold!

  6. > preserve the plating and make sure it never rusts

    Gold doesn’t rust.

    So, what the hell then are they plating it with and who is getting ripped off?

    1. Maybe they just don’t want it to flake off? not sure.

    2. It says they out a series of metal plates finished with the 24k gold plating.. maybe to preservation layer is to keep the metals under the gold plating from rustin under the gold and causing it to bubble, like paint would on a car with rust under it. (Paint doesn’t rust, but the metal under it does, think of the gold as the paint in this scenario).

  7. It’s like gold plating a Hyundai.

  8. Gaaayyyy as fu#k!!
