Last week Samsung announced that it would be offering the Galaxy S4 in Gold and since that announcement many people have been calling Samsung a copycat. This is of course because Apple just recently released the gold iPhone 5s.
Due to the bad PR that Samsung has been receiving it has published a weird blog post with a very defensive tone.
By now you probably know that aliens work with Samsung, well so do some gods – Midas, to name one.
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).
The post then goes on to list photos of previous gold phones Samsung has released over the years.
It isn’t hard to imagine why Samsung is making such a big deal out of this because it did lose a very public lawsuit to Apple where it was essentially found guilty of copying Fruit Company. But this is a strange way to prove its point that the company has been making gold smartphones for a long time.
We will close with John Gruber‘s thoughts on the matter ”We were making gold phones before anyone wanted one” isn’t a good argument for anything.”
