Apple Inc followed the trend started by HTC when it launched the iPhone 5s in golden color variant, and now the trend is being carried forward by Samsung for its upcoming Galaxy S5 smartphone.

The smartphone will be unveiled at the upcoming Mobile World Congress in the Spanish city of Barcelona, but it will take little more time for the device to reach the stores worldwide.
The Galaxy S5 handsets are expected to be on sale from middle of March.
The Galaxy S5 is expected to come with 5.25 inch screen with 2560×1440 resolution. The device will also sport a 16 megapixel rear-facing camera.
