Android Central reports that Samsung has announced three new colours for its Galaxy Note 3.

Its black and white models now comes with rose gold versions that has gold instead of silver accents. It also unveiled a merlot red version.

HTC launched a gold version of its HTC One after producing a limited edition in real gold. After launching a limited edition gold Galaxy S4, Samsung is bringing gold to the mass market with the gold Galaxy Note 3.

I think we are way past the debate on whether a gold phone appeals to the public. The gold iPhone 5s has silenced the critics.

Samsung doesn’t seem to understand that a gold plastic phone feels completely different from a gold aluminium phone.
