It sure seems like Samsung is clearly annoyed by the fact that rival Apple is getting all the credit for rolling out a gold smartphone.

The electronics company took to its blog to argue that it was first with a gold phone and that it wasn’t following Apple’s move. Since Apple rolled out the gold version of the iPhone 5s Sept. 10, it has been hugely popular and sold out at many stores as soon as it was released.

Samsung said it launched the gold version of its flagship smartphone in the United Arab Emirates back on Aug. 27. It started selling the devices in stores on Sept. 8 and later took the device to Kuwait and Qatar too.

“On 8th September 2013, the first Samsung #GalaxyS4 Gold Edition was already available in stores. The 8th comes before the 10th,” Samsung said on a caption for a picture posted on Facebook on Sept. 26, referencing the iPhone 5s announcement date.

To further drive the point that Samsung is not an Apple copycat, the company lists eight other gold cell phones it has released since 2004.

“See below to check out some of the phones we’ve released in gold in the past (just off the top of my head),” Samsung said on its blog.It’s doubtful Apple will get in on this who-was-first fight, but we’ve reached out to the Cupertino, Calif., tech company just in case.
