Despite being released as a new model, the Black Edition has few differences from the flagship Samsung Galaxy S4. The Samsung Galaxy S4 Black Edition ditches the predecessor’s plastic rear for a black-coloured faux-leather back. On the inside the Galaxy S4 is the GT-I9505 variant with a Qualcomm chip, meaning it has a 1.9GHz Snapdragon 600 processor.
Samsung has a penchant for releasing multiple variants of its popular smartphones, and the Galaxy S4 certainly falls under that list. Originally released back in early 2013, several variants of the Galaxy S4 have already been released, some globally, while some in specific regions. The Korean juggernaut has now launched a black Galaxy S4 and Galaxy mini in Russia, these variants also tout the faux leather backs that first debuted on the Galaxy Note 3 late last year.
