“Oh, it’s on!”: Samsung sends John Legere a gold Samsung Galaxy S5 of its Own
Shots have now been fired. Earlier today, we reported that HTC America had sent T-Mobile CEO, John Legere, a HTC One M8 with a 24 carat gold finish as a gift, a photo of which he happily posted on his Twitter account. Not content to be beaten out by HTC, Samsung Mobile US has gifted to Legere a gold Samsung Galaxy S5 of their own, hand delivered by Samsung executive, Travis Warren. You can see it in the picture above, which is a selfie that could possibly have been taken with the gold HTC One M8. Ironic, no?
In the tweet with the gold Samsung Galaxy S5, Legere doesn’t mention that the device has a 24 carat gold finish as he did with the One M8, so it’s entirely likely that this is just a publicity stunt by Samsung to make sure it doesn’t look like HTC beat them at something. That said, it does look very gold, and who wouldn’t want to be choosing between two of the newest and best Android smartphones on the market which also happen to be gold. Man, do I want to be John Legere…
