Samsung announced today that it’s releasing a couple variations of its Galaxy S4 and S4 mini smartphones that introduce the faux “leather-style” backside that first made an appearance on the new Note 3 at IFA in September. The new devices are dubbed “Black Edition” and come with wallpapers to match, but otherwise are the same 5-inch and 4.3-inch Galaxy S4 devices that have been on the market for nearly a couple years now. Samsung says the special Black Editions will be available in select markets starting this month.

Both the Galaxy S4 and S4 mini Black Editions sport a high-quality leather-like textured black back cover and bezel. This distinct and refined design provides consumers with a stylish Galaxy experience. In addition, Black Edition devices also come preloaded with a suite of eight dedicated wallpapers for both the home and lock screens as well as several new and exclusive ringtones. The Galaxy S4 and S4 mini Black Editions are sold in sleek black packaging complete with a set of black accessories including a power adapter, data cable and headphones.
