Samsung unveils new black variant of Galaxy S4 and S4 mini

Samsung has unveiled a new black edition of its Samsung Galaxy S4 and S4 mini smartphones. Availability in the UK will be announced in due course.

The manufacturer said the variants sport a “high quality leather-like textured black back cover and bezel”. They also come preloaded with eight wallpapers for both the home and lock screens, as well as new and exclusive ringtones.

The Galaxy S4 (pictured) was released last April and is available in black, white, red, blue and pink. It became Samsung’s quickest selling mobile of all time when it broke the 10 million sales barrier less than a month after launching.

The compact variant of that flagship device, the Galaxy S4 mini, was released last July and is currently available in black, white, blue, pink, purple and orange.

Samsung has yet to send images of the new models.
