Samsung has announced the Galaxy S4 Black Edition a while ago and now it’s being officially released at the Mobile World Congress. And while it doesn’t bring anything new, except for the black color and faux leather, it does look really good.
The Galaxy S4 Black Edition has the same faux leather as the Galaxy Note 3, which makes it look premium. The black color also looks amazing on the smartphone, but it’s such a shame Samsung needed an year to release this. The Galaxy S4 Black Edition is probably going to become a cheaper brother of Galaxy S5, which is due to be released later today.
If you’re looking for a cheaper, but still powerful smartphone, then the Galaxy S4 Black Edition might be a good choice. It comes with Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box, like it was to be expected, and it features the same hardware as the Galaxy S4, which is still one of the fastest smartphones on the market.
We expect the Galaxy S4 Black Edition to come at the same price with the usual Galaxy S4, which might be discontinued later this year.
In terms of hardware, it comes with an Exynos 5 Octa 5410 chipset (Quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A15 & quad-core 1.2 GHz Cortex-A7) or the 1.9Ghz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor. It also features 2GB of RAM, 16GB, 32GB, or 64GB of internal memory, a 13MP primary camera and a 2MP frontal camera.
Samsung didn’t reveal the Galaxy S4 Black Edition’s release date yet, but we expect it to hit the market by March. Head over to the gallery below to see more photos of it and let us know what you think about it.
