Last week we got a look at the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 Mini Black Editions courtesy of Samsung’s Russian website. Today, the Korean company has released an official statement pegging the device for release in select markets later this month.
The Black Editions borrow the faux-leather design of the Galaxy Note 3 and bring it to the Galaxy S4 lineup, down to the simulated stitching running along the back panel of the phone. The look, which has its fans and detractors alike, attempts to install a premium look to the handset, replacing the glossy plastic of the original.
Internally, the phone features an identical compliment of specs (Snapdragon 600, 13MP camera, 5-inch display) as the original S4. Samsung is bundling the device with new wallpapers and ringtones.
Exact release details and regions were not announced, but Samsung UK says more info as it pertains to Europe will be coming along shortly.
