If you like gold phones, then get your bank cards ready, because it sounds like the Samsung Galaxy Z Flip 4 could be the next phone to come in this eye-catching and lustrous shade.

This comes from display supply chain analyst Ross Young, who tweeted to share the colors of the new upcoming Samsung phone, as well as its sibling the Galaxy Z Fold 4 – presumably these are leaks, and not predictions, as Young usually flags when things are a guess.

Apparently, the Z Flip 4 will come in gold, gray, light blue and light violet shades – for context, the Z Flip 3 came in cream, black, dark green and lavender (which is likely the same as the ‘light violet’ that Young talks about).

So the last Z Flip came with two dark and two pastel shades – if Young is correct, the newer phone will come in two pastel, one dark and one vibrant color. 

The Z Fold 4 will apparently come in beige, black and gray, so it certainly doesn’t sound as exciting as the Flip 4 – it even sounds a little less ‘fun’ than the Z Fold 3, which came in black, silver and green. That’s why we haven’t put it in the headline.

Analysis: gold is good

Gold is a luxurious color. I probably don’t need to tell you that, but it bears repeating for the following sentiments.

Gold accessories are eye-catching. If you’ve got gold jewelry that’s one thing but if you’ve got clothes, accessories and other things in the color, all eyes are going to be on you.

Since foldable phones are, at least in part, a fashion statement, you’re going to want one that’s attractive and steals the spotlight any time it’s pulled out. A black one doesn’t do that, and neither do other dark shades, but a gold phone absolutely will.

Obviously this isn’t the case for everyone – some people prefer their understated colors and design – but if that’s you, we imagine you stopped reading this article after the ‘gold is good’ heading.

As a fan of gold (I’ve got a gold guitar, and multiple gold shirts, and I’m aware of how garish they are) I’m happy that there’s going to be an option for me. But for everyone else, at least the new options are more diverse.
