Samsung Galaxy S4 Black Edition Available at Phones 4U UK for £500

Samsung Galaxy S4 Black Edition

Last month, at Mobile World Congress tech fair, besides introducing the Galaxy S5 flagship, Samsung has also unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S4 Black Edition, which is a Galaxy S4 that borrows the faux leather back of the Galaxy Note 3.

Even though the Samsung Galaxy S5 will be released on the market in less than a month, the South Korean phone maker thought it would benefit from releasing the Galaxy S4 Black Edition in the UK. The smartphone has been made available for purchase at price of £499.89, and, for the time being Phones 4U is the only British retailer to have it in their portfolio.

Given that Clove and Unlockd-Mobiles UK retailers hinted they will be selling the Samsung Galaxy S5 at £549, I not sure whether the faux leather back of the Galaxy S4 Black Edition is worth £500 pounds. I know the S4 looks great with the back of the Note 3, but even so it’s not wroth purchasing it now, while you can wait less than a month and buy a newer model for £50 more.

As I was mentioning above, aside the faux leather back, there’s no difference between the S4 Black Edition and the S4 launched by Samsung early 2013, therefore you’ll get a 1080p 5.0-inch Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 3 protection, quad-core 2.3 GHz Snapdragon 800 processor, 2 GB of RAM, 16 GB storage, microSD slot, 13 MP primary cam, 2 MP secondary cam, and a 2,600 mAh battery.
