Samsung will launch the Black Edition Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 Mini in "select markets"
We first got wind of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and S4 Mini Black Editions in December. Then, at the end of January, both handsets popped up at Samsung Russia’s official website. And, finally, today Samsung announced that the two new Black Edition smartphones would be available “in select markets” starting this month, confirming that they’re not exclusive to Russia.

Reportedly, the S4 and S4 Mini Black Editions are “the latest in Samsung’s effort to build on its commitment to deliver innovative technologies with more premium design choices to consumers.” Unlike the original Galaxy S4 and S4 Mini, the refreshed models come with faux-leather back covers - similar to what we’re seeing on the Galaxy Note 3 and Note 3 Neo. Even more, the new handsets feature a suite of “eight dedicated wallpapers”, exclusive ringtones, and black accessories - all in black packaging. That aside, they shouldn't differ, feature-wise, from the regular versions that were introduced last year.

Samsung didn’t specifically say which markets (besides Russia) would get the Black Edition S4 and S4 Mini. However, with the new Samsung Galaxy S5 expected to be announced at MWC later this month, these all-black S4 variants might go unnoticed

That's one sexy looking handset... that leather-looking back really fits to GS4 (and Mini). And if it's that 4G+ model (Snapdragon 800), not that outdated either.

Who would buy these? I would disown a family member or dump a friend who would pay flagship prices for a year old phone that will be released within two months of its successor.
