A 24k gold Samsung Galaxy Note 4 is now available for purchase in Vietnam. Every piece of metal (including the grills) is coated in gold by local aficionados of the noble metal.
The process takes 4-5 hours of continuous work per unit and, according to a rough translation, costs about $1100 (VND 24 million) to make. The price doesn't include the cost of the Galaxy Note 4 itself, though, you'll have to spend an extra $900 (VND 19 million) for the phablet.
While we would have liked to see the Vietnamese company bathe the white version of the Galaxy Note 4 in gold, the black one looks nice as well. You can see the process in video below.
The phone is distributed by Golden Mobile in Vietnam, showing the thirst for gold-plated phones is a global affair.
Is this made of solid 24K - then it would be soft and subject to dents etc - or is it gold plated? what is the cost of the gold content in there?
The phone is looking good with the gold plating. Hope, it will give the users a better experience.
