There are a bajillion different colours in the world but the colour on everyone’s lips is pink. Or rather, Rose Gold. It used to be gold, but who has time for that anymore. What you want is a slight blush on your gold, which I guess makes it a little shyer than just full on gold y’know?
It became the easiest way to tell the iPhone 6 and iPhone 6s apart, and now almost every smartphone manufacturer’s flagship device comes in this strawberry milkshake colour.
Why is it confusing? Well, for starters, it costs roughly the same as the Samsung Galaxy Note5 but it doesn’t have nearly as many features or boast nearly the same specifications.
What’s more, it comes with Huawei’s EMUI which is slowly starting to look like every other Chinese smartphone manufacturer’s Android Skin.
A perplexing smartphone at this price point then, when they clearly could have made it a much more well-rounded device. Well, Huawei is trying to sweeten the deal with their Malaysian launch of the Rose Gold variant of the Mate S.
It is now on sale in all authorised Huawei authorised retailers and the price will remain the same at RM2,698. It will sport the same internal specifications and camera, but now that it comes in pink – uh Rose Gold – it suddenly should appeal to the “special woman in your life”.
I’m personally more concerned with the performance and build of a device, but what do I know about what women want. I will say that it is kind of refreshing to at least get a second colour option because let’s face it, the Mate S’s Gold always seemed a little too tacky.
