In the past, we’ve seen third-party vendors create premium, and expensive, versions of flagship devices from different manufacturers by gold-plating them, and often use exquisite materials.
Samsung also unveiled their latest flagship device, the Galaxy S6 and the Galaxy S6 Edge a few weeks back. Both handsets are already available for sale in several markets. So it doesn’t come as a surprise to see a vendor releasing a gold-plated version of the handsets.
Karalux, a Vietnamese company, is offering premium versions of both handsets with 24k gold-plating on the metal sides of the handsets as well as the ring around the camera module of the handset.. It takes almost three hours for Karalux engineers to create a gold-plated version of the handset where it has to go through 10 rigorous stages to complete the gold-plating process for the handsets. Furthermore, there’s an additional coating of a nano layer to make sure the gold-plating is not vulnerable to corrosion.
The 24k gold-plating will cost you around $400 (VND 8 million) on top of the regular price of the handsets.
