LG G2 is probably one of our favorite smartphones of 2013 and we are glad to see that this high end smartphone manages to capture once again the spotlight. From what we know so far, the company is preparing a new gold edition of its flagship G2 handset. Although there is no word on a global availability yet, this device has been already reveled in Taiwan and listed on a Taiwanese Yahoo Shopping page for a price of no less than 14,900 TWD (around $500, to be more specific) for the 16 GB version, while the 32 GB one can be purchased for 16,900 TWD ($560), just as the existing colors.
HTC, Samsung, and Apple have also released gold editions, but at such a price, you can only imagine that this LG G2 Gold edition isn’t made out of real gold, as in the case of other much more expensive smartphones recently released on the market.
We have just a gold painted covering, in this case only applied to the rear, while the device’s face has the same black bezel that we are already used too. And we must admit that we particularly like this refreshing color which gives the impression of elegance, if not even extravagance and we see it as an ideal response to consumer demand.
Is it all just a bit too much for you or that’s exactly what you have been looking for? It’s only your decision to take and all that we can do is to assure that this new Gold LG G2 revealed in Taiwan doesn’t come with any compromise in terms of hardware, as our source also confirms. The chipset inside has remained the same Qualcomm MSM8974 Snapdragon 800, along with a 2.26GHz quad-core Krait 400, while its 13MP LED flash camera has several editing tools, just like any other high-end Android smartphone. And the 5.2-inch 1920 x 1080 display gives us a 424 PPI density, so there is nothing to complain about.
Let’s just hope that this Gold LG G2 will soon reach to other markets than Taiwan as well and we will update the story when we have more information .
