When the gold iPhone 5s was revealed in leaks, it was called fake. When the actual, real deal, official iPhone 5s was released in gold, it was the start of a wave of releases that'd forever be called copycats. While devices like the Sony Xperia RAY have been appearing in gold for many moons now, there seems to be no end in sight for the odd, internationally tapped color set.
