Samsung officially announces Black Edition Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 mini for select markets
Samsung Russia recently put up official listings of the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 mini Black Edition phones on its website, and now the company has announced that the new all-black variants of its 2013 handsets will be making their way to select markets, sometime later this month. For those unaware, the hardware on both devices remains the same as the standard variants from last year, but both have been given a black paint job and a “leather-like textured black back cover and bezel” similar to the Galaxy Note 3 (and other Samsung devices announced in 2014.)
Furthermore, both devices come with exclusive wallpapers (and ringtones) to match their striking new coloring, and also a Black Edition’ power adapter, data cable and headphones. It all makes for two very attractive smartphones, though whether spending money on handsets that will soon be succeeded by better, newer models makes sense is something you’ll have to decide on your own.
