Earlier in the week the Samsung Galaxy S4 Black Edition and Galaxy S4 Mini Black Edition smartphones appeared on Samsung’s Russian website, and now Samsung has officially announced these new handsets.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini Black Edition and Galaxy S4 Black Edition come with a black color scheme, and faux leather on the back of the handset like the Samsung Galaxy Note 3.
Both the Galaxy S4 and S4 mini Black Editions sport a high-quality leather-like textured black back cover and bezel. This distinct and refined design provides consumers with a stylish Galaxy experience. In addition, Black Edition devices also come preloaded with a suite of eight dedicated wallpapers for both the home and lock screens as well as several new and exclusive ringtones. The Galaxy S4 and S4 mini Black Editions are sold in sleek black packaging complete with a set of black accessories including a power adapter, data cable and headphones.
“As Samsung continues to expand on the modern Galaxy design approach, we’re excited to offer Black Edition versions of our popular Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 mini,” said Younghee Lee, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing, IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics. “These eye-catching and sophisticated models demonstrate Samsung’s commitment to bring consumers new ways to express their style through their mobile device.”
Samsung have said that both these new Galaxy S4 Black Edition smartphones will be available in select markets, as yet there is no information on exactly where they will be available or how much they will retail for.
