Samsung Announces Gold Platinum Variant of Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Plus Dylan Duarte March 16, 2015 News Oh Apple, what have you started? When they announced the 18-karat gold edition of the Apple Watch at their recent Spring Forward event, the Internet went into a frenzy, with a lot of people laughing at just how ridiculous that is (though I’m sure plenty of those people secretly want one). Now Samsung is quickly cashing in on the craze, and while they aren’t offering 18-karats, they have added a Gold Platinum color variant of the upcoming Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge. When Samsung first announced the Galaxy S6 and Galaxy S6 Edge models at Mobile World Congress at the start of the month, the color variants announced were Black Sapphire and Pearl White. That was before Apple made everyone crazy for gold and everyone forgot how gaudy it was. If you’re one of those weird people who cares more about how the phone operates than the Gold Platinum casing, then be sure to check out our hands-on preview to get a sense of what the phone is really like.
