A few days ago we have told you that the Black Editions of Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 Mini are listed on Samsung’s Russian site, but we had no clues regarding the possibility of an international release. Now, things are about to change given the company’s statement regarding its two new versions that will arrive in select markets this month. It is true that Samsung did not specify the names of these select markets, but we are sure that Russia is one of them and we hope that US is as well. In case you don’t remember, both these Black Editions are supposed to come with faux-leather back covers, just like we have previously seen on Galaxy Note 3 or Grand 2, but here is something more than you need to find out about them.
New black accessories
These Black Editions of Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 Mini don’t come alone, but along with a set of new (and of course black) accessories including a data cable, a power adapter, as well as headphones; as for the eight exclusive wallpapers for the home and lock screens, they match perfectly with the new color, not to mention the ringtones recently added.
The specifications of the Black Edition devices remain same as the original retail versions, so here is a recap: Samsung Galaxy S4 Black Edition comes with a 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display and gets the power from a 1.9GHz Snapdragon 600 processor, also including a promising 2600 mAh battery, while the Mini Black Edition houses a 1.7GHz dual-core processor along with a 4.3-inch qHD Super AMOLED display and a 1900 mAh battery. And as our source confirms, they both feature the latest Android 4.2.2 OS version!
Just as Younghee Lee, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing, IT & Mobile Division at Samsung Electronics has declared, we strongly believe that: ‘These eye-catching and sophisticated models demonstrate Samsung’s commitment to bring consumers new ways to express their style through their mobile device’, so we’ll keep you updated!
