It’s indeed the case as the company recently made the news official. Both Galaxy S4 Black Edition and Galaxy S4 Mini Black Edition are virtually identical to their original variants, except for the ‘Note 3 style faux-leather’ in an effort to bring the premium feel to their customers.
“These new editions are the latest in Samsung’s effort to build on its commitment to deliver innovative technologies with more premium design choices to consumers.”
Those refreshed black edition will also feature what Samsung effectively calls ‘dedicated wallpapers’, essentially 8 new wallpapers and additional ringtones. The package will also include 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.”
Both variants will be made available in ‘select markets’ next month, we can assume that Samsung plans to ship them worldwide but the company has yet to make any announcement about that eventuality.
