Samsung turns to 'Pink Gold' as South Korea prepares to welcome Apple

Apple's iPhone 6s and 6s Plus will launch in South Korea on October 23 after a very successful year when its market share rose three-fold, notably at the expense of Samsung.

Samsung, however retained it's 59 per cent share thanks to a better performance in the lower-priced phones market where it feasted on LG and Pantech.

Apple's latest iPhone 6s and 6s Plus are better known for the new Rose Gold coloured variants which are being considered as hot products, selling out faster than other colour variants. Wary of Apple's entry next week, Samsung has just announced a new Rose Gold Galaxy Note 5 and is reportedly planning to flood the South Korean market with it to deny Apple any leverage.

Apart from Rose Gold, Samsung is also launching the Galaxy Note 5 in Silver Titanium colour. We believe Samsung's internal surveys must have tipped Rose Gold iPhones as the most sought after product which led to this new decision.

Even though South Koreans will be able to use the Rose Gold Galaxy Note 5 as early as next week, the device is yet to be made available in any form or colour in the UK. As per Techradar, a source close to Samsung Romania has confirmed that Galaxy Note 5 will enter Europe as early as in January of next year. If Samsung does launch the phablet here in January, we're sure Rose Gold will be among the first options.
