Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 gold version quietly outed in India

The Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 has popped up in a brand new gold shade in India, giving buyers a new classy option to choose from. The fresh selection was quietly launched by the Korean giant and it’s currently listed on the eStore for the same Rs 20900 price, but is yet to go on sale.

There’s no word on whether the gold Samsung Galaxy Grand 2 will also be available through retail store or be exclusive to the company’s online shop. The new shade has been applied to the rear panel which flaunts a faux leather design. The plastic rim on the sides and the ring around the home button have also been treated to the hue.

What’s disappointing here is that the shade used is rather dull and could have been more appealing if it were brighter. Nevertheless, something is better than nothing especially when you’re only options are the standard black and white. On a side note, the Grand 2 is also listed in pink, but is currently not in stock.
