Samsung has announced a new Black Edition Galaxy S4 and S4 Mini and it is an amalgamation of the Galaxy S4 and Note 3’s faux leather back.
The Black Edition Galaxy S4 does away with the hyperglaze finished back we don’t really like and brings in the much more likable, Galaxy Note 3’s faux leather back. The Black Edition Galaxy S4 is the Galaxy S4 we have to come to know all along with identical specs to the global Galaxy S4. However, the Black Galaxy S4 comes with the Snapdragon 600 processor and not the Exynos one.
The mid-range Galaxy S4 Mini also gets its very own Black Edition as well and it features identical specs to the S4 Mini we know so, no surprises here.
The new Galaxy S4 and S4 Mini editions will go on sale starting next month only in Russia as of now and there’s no word on global availability. The Black Edition Galaxy S4 is priced at around $600 and the Black Edition S4 Mini at $460.
With the Galaxy S5 on the horizon, we would not really expect Samsung to bring the new Black Galaxy S4 or the Black S4 Mini globally but we’ll let you know if they do bring it to other parts of the world.
