Whether we like it or not, gold smartphones are here to stay, and it wasn’t surprising when Samsung announced that the Galaxy S5 would also be available with the flashy color option in addition to more common ones like the black, white and blue colors. Well, it looks like the Samsung Z, the first commercial Tizen phone, has a gold variant as well, photos of which have been published by TizenExperts. The photos were taken at the Tizen Developer Summit in Russia, and the phone actually looks better than average despite the not-so-tasteful implementation of the gold coloring.

It remains to be seen if the gold version of the phone will go on sale anytime soon, since Samsung didn’t mention it during the phone’s official announcement. Of course, there’s still the matter of when the phone itself will launch in the market, but here’s hoping Samsung can rise past the obstacles it continues to face and make the Samsung Z available for purchase as soon as it can.
