Black editions of the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 mini announced


Last updated: January 31st, 2014 at 11:21 UTC+01:00

It looks like Samsung isn’t done with rolling out different editions of the Galaxy S4, as it just announced the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 mini black editions. They look similar to the regular versions of the Galaxy S4 and S4 mini, but feature a black faux leather back cover that is similar to the one used on the Galaxy Note 3.

As far as the hardware is concerned, the Galaxy S4 Black Edition is based on the I9505 Galaxy S4, which features a Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 SoC with a 1.9 GHz quad-core Krait 300 CPU and an Adreno 320 GPU. Other hardware details are the same, and include a 5-inch full-HD screen, 2 GB RAM, 16 GB internal storage, 13 MP camera, Wi-Fi, LTE, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, DLNA and a 2,600 mAh battery along with Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean.

The Galaxy S4 mini Black Edition similarly shares the same hardware features of the Galaxy S4 mini, which include a 4.3-inch qHD screen, 1.7 GHz dual-core Snapdragon 400, 1.5 GB RAM, 8 GB internal storage, 8 MP camera, micro-SD slot and a 1,900 mAh battery.

The Galaxy S4 Black Edition is going to launch in Russia next month for $660, with no word on international availability. The Galaxy S4 mini Black Edition is set to cost $460 in the country.
