“About a month ago on August 27th, Samsung launched the GALAXY S4 Gold edition in the United Arab Emirates (These were available in stores starting September 8th). It’s since also been released in Kuwait and Qatar.
Everybody loves gold, which is why we sometimes make phones in that color. (Or sometimes even with actual gold for the body!) See below to check out some of the phones we’ve released in gold in the past (just off the top of my head).”
While Samsung has released a slew of gold phones in the past, there were rumours that Apple would release a gold version of their iPhone so one could argue it would make sense for Samsung to create a gold phone so that it would be ready to compete with Apple.
Clearly Samsung isn’t taking any chances with its reputation given the fact that it lost a case in 2012 and has to pay Apple quite a bit of money because of that.
What do you think of these allegations of copying and does Samsung’s explanation suffice for you? Please leave a comment below and we will get back to you.
