Remember That Sweet Flip Phone From Samsung? Well, They Make it in Gold Now

Galaxy Golden

Last week, the Samsung Hennessy became official. It’s nothing special, just a glorified Android-powered flip phone that sports dual displays and a quad-core CPU. Nevertheless, we thought now would be appropriate timing to inform you that a very special edition “Galaxy Golden” device is circulating overseas. Yep, it’s a gold Hennessy. 

Just yesterday, we sort of humorously asked in a poll if a gold phone would interest any of you. The mass majority said no, but what if the phone looked this good? I mean, look at this thing – the smooth dark black meeting the glossy gold trim. It’s very unique and looks pretty hot.

Either way, the Galaxy Golden is not on sale here in America and probably most certainly will never come here. When converted to US dollars, the device costs in the ballpark of $715.

Care to share any thoughts on the device?

    Quote from last week: “you can expect this to be the last time we talk about the Hennessy. Unless something crazy happens.”

    Guess Samsung did something crazy, eh? Really didn’t want the Hennessy forgotten on DL so soon.

    Gold flip phone? Do I look like a 1980s real estate agent with big hair to you?

  • iNfAMOUS70702

    unless its a revamped version of the OG RAZR then who the hell would buy a flip phone these days?

  • Nick Altavilla

    Very Nice

  • rabidhunter

    Hey, I got a gold phone, Rob me now!

  • SewWhat

    For the pimp that has everything…..

    The ’70′s called.. they want their style/tech/look back…

  • John Jenness

    Didn’t the Hennessy come with dual screens?

    • Justin W

      It did… I see a screen on the front of this, but it looks like a 1.5-2″ screen, not the 3.3″ screen the Hennessy has two of. I’m guessing this is a lower model than the Hennessy.

      Also, $715? F that.

        Check the source link. The picture on this article is of the back not the front.

        • Justin W

          I see it now – I was just assuming that was the front because that’s where the camera pretty much always was on flip phones.

    • michael arazan

      Does the Hennessy come with a bottle of Hennessy because you got to be drunk to buy that phone.

  • Joshua Kirchmer

    ok here come the flamethrowers, but … is there seriously zero chance this comes stateside? because I actually think this could be the phone for me. tired of giant phones and screens. maybe not in gold though..

  • Illinipoke

    Offer Iran 2 million of these for free and they will shut down their nuke program.

    • JeffColorado

      Everyone in Club Persh wants one or already has one.

  • Jaxon Wright

    Principal O-Shack-Hennessy?

  • Shuang L De Jesus

    I would get this… why not in the US? i would use this to make calls and look cool and then i’d walk around with my tablet for the heavy lifting. Why carry 2 huge items?

  • Liderc

    The gold phone is almost as expensive as the Moto X off contract. Epic fail

  • Sammy Guyana

    this is for all the people on welfare…

  • Bigwavedave25

    THAT HENNESSY GOT THE BEST OF ME…

  • James

    Why must they always copy Apple? This is why I just can’t get myself to buy any of their phones. No matter how good the specs.

    • Adrynalyne

      Did you really just sit here and proclaim that Apple deserves exclusivity to…colors?

    • Octotron

      Use of the color gold is copying Apple? When was the last time Apple released a flip phone?

      • Dorian Brooks

        Didn’t you know Apple patented the color “Gold”

  • RaptorOO7

    $715 is not outrageous, a lot of high end smartphones cost $650+ these days.

  • moelsen8

    i actually really like it.

  • col3rsc

    I’d buy one for my douchebag mode.

  • TuckandRoll84

    Does it use Bling as its search engine?

  • Milind Shah

    This guy wants it, and he wants it bad!

  • Don Crist

    If it was a slider i would buy it!! In gold of course.

  • T4rd

    I dunno why, but I think this is really bad-ass. Seems like something Walter White would use.

      UGH. I really don’t want that show to end :(

    • shane lawson

  • Ryan Ropero

    I wonder how much money was wasted on research and development on this flagship device?

    This guy just ordered a case of them.

    • Tyler Durden

      Chump change

      Why not? More user data to gather from the ostentatious people that would buy this.

        Paris Hilton does not hold that much useful data on anything.

        • MacNificent

          i dont think Paris Hilton even has data holder.

      “That Sweet Flip Phone” Said NO One Ever

  • ReturnOfTheMack

    This reminds me of when the original Motorola RAZR came in gold on AT&T.
