LG G2 “Gold Edition” Spotted Overseas – Not Super Baller Status, But Still Nice

While HTC can afford to pump out 18K Gold One smartphones (/s), other companies tend to opt for a more affordable approach – such as Apple and Samsung who merely paint their devices a gold tone. The next OEM to enter into the gold market appears to be LG, as a G2 in Gold coloring has been spotted overseas in Taiwan. Thanks to a user on ePrice, it appears the device is set to launch soon, for about the same retail price as the Black and White models, which means there isn’t anything too special about the gold being used. 

Unfortunately for Americans, there is no word yet whether we could see this Trinidad James version hit our shores. As of right now, it appears to be an overseas thing only.

While gold is nice, and we are sure plenty of people appreciate its hypnotic values, we wouldn’t mind to see more work going into other materials and colors.

    I bought the gold one and i didn’t do it for the colour( which isnt really gold), i decided to buy it because it has matt finish and textured back cover, so there’s absolutely no fingerprint marks no matter how hard you try … if they offered the same finish in black i would definitely go for it.

    Will the gold fix the sucky gps?

    Man that is one uuuuugggly phone right there lol … Since when did someone think Gold was the shizz in this decade?.. White Gold is another story , but not this ..I feel like they should bring back plastic covered couches and green carpet with brown walls too .. If apple does it,ya never know haha 😉

    I wish android manufactures would learn that just because Apple does it, doesn’t mean they have to. Seriously. It’s this kind of stupidity that fuels the iSheep.

    • Adrynalyne

      Yeah I mean, just because Apple did it, doesn’t mean the Atrix needed a fingerprint scanner 😉

      • droidify

        Point taken…

    Probably would have looked better if the front and camera part was white…

  • Philip J. Fry

    Ugh. I wish this “gold color” trend would stop.

    • Mort

      I, too, wish people would stop making things that I don’t like. /s

      • Philip J. Fry

        Opinions are like as…..you get where I’m going with this.

    • James

      I feel like the only comments you should make are ‘Not sure if…’ comments. haha.

  • NickA

    I don’t think it’s too bad. I wish my Verizon variant had the bigger buttons on the back though like every other carrier model has.

    • John Legere

      I hardly ever use the buttons

  • Adrynalyne


    So ugly.

    Edit: On all devices, not just this one.
