Razer Phone in gold doesn’t quite have a ton of gold

Razer is celebrating the Lunar New Year with a special model of its first phone. The company just announced the Razer Phone in gold, but don’t lose your mind after hearing the color. It’s largely the same color scheme as before.

Unfortunately, there isn’t very much gold used. Rather than changing the entire body’s color to give a fresh look, Razer only changed the logo on the back.

Pricing hasn’t changed despite the limited edition status, which is a good thing. If you want the Razer Phone in gold, you’ll still be paying $699 as you would for the standard edition. So it’s not like Razer made one change to the appearance of the Razer Phone but jacked up the price. The limited edition’s price is fair considering the logo’s color is the sole difference.

Maybe later this year Razer will introduce a second color that actually varies from the regular model.
