Days before Samsung Electronics is set to launch what is believed to be Galaxy S5, the smartphone maker has given its flagship Galaxy S4 along with its Galaxy S4 Mini a major makeover. The company has unveiled the Black Edition versions of the two devices.
This is the latest in the firm’s efforts to bring about innovative technologies into more premium and attractive design options. It could be noted that about a year ago, Galaxy Note 3 was also given a version featuring the faux-leather back.
The Black Editions of GS4 and GS4 Mini are sporting textured back cover with high quality leather. Customers could expect to find surprises inside. Those include eight new designs for wallpaper and a number of exclusive ringtones.
Black Edition versions
In a statement, Samsung said the Black Edition versions of the popular GS4 and GS4 Mini are part of the company’s expansion of its modern Galaxy design approach. Both versions are not just sophisticated and eye-catching; they also showcase Samsung’s commitment to help users express their personalities through their popular mobile devices.
The company even assured that users would not have to worry about accessorizing the handsets. Black Edition versions of the devices would include black power adapter, headphones, and data cable. Users would not have to find a hard time matching outfits or wall outlets.
Samsung GS4 has full HD Super AMOLED screen and a 13-megapixel camera at its rear. It has a Dual Camera function that facilitates simultaneous usage of both back and front shooters. GS4 Mini is its smaller version.
Samsung’s future surprises
The Black Edition versions of the devices would be available this month in selected markets. Samsung is reportedly preparing to launch the next-generation versions of its flagship Galaxy devices. Recently, it announced plans to stage a major launch on February 24, though it did not reveal exactly what it would be unveiling on that day. The launch would coincide with the Mobile World Congress to be held in Barcelona, Spain.
Dubbed as the ‘Samsung Unpacked Event, the launch would start at 8 p.m. (E.T.), based on the invitations sent out. It will be live-streamed through the Internet. Although Samsung did not disclose what it would ‘unpack,’ most analysts have reasons to expect that it would be all about the Samsung S5. Sources claim that the new device would be released to the market sometime in March or April.
