London-based Truly Exquisite is selling a series of gold and platinum plated models of the Galaxy S7 and S7 Edge, all in the range of about $2,300 or more. They’re up for preorder, and given the above-average price they require a 50 percent deposit. After doing some pounds-to-dollars conversion, here’s the breakdown:

  • 24K Gold Galaxy S7 – £1,700 (about $2,380 USD)
  • 24K Gold Galaxy S7 Edge – £1,800 (about $2,530 USD)

The story behind the story: As gadgets have become an essential accessory, some retailers have sought to turn them into a luxury item. The most prominent example in the world of Android is Tag Heuer’s Carrera, which costs $1,800. And of course there’s always the ultra-luxurious Apple Watch Edition for those who live in an iOS world, which costs as much as $17,000.
