Samsung Galaxy S4 Crystal Edition now available

Samsung Galaxy S4 Crystal Edition now available
A crystal version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 has been introduced by the Korean OEM. Made with Swarovski elements, the phone is actually the international version (I9500) of the flagship Android model and is powered with an octa-core Samsung Exynos 5 CPU. Similar to the Samsung Galaxy Note 3, the back is made of faux leather and includes embedded crystals.

Only 3500 units of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Crystal Edition are being made available, and to buy one you have to go to a Samsung Store in Thailand. The price of the phone is 20,300 baht ($634.17 USD), while the regular Samsung Galaxy S4 is priced at 17,300 baht ($540.46).

If you like to have a unique phone that is also quite capable, you're going to be hard pressed to find something that tops this. With only 3500 availabe, better start making plans for that long flight to Thailand.

Thanks, Anonymous Tipster!

Kinda looks like an aftermarket case, neat but too girly for the jedii. I love the white/gold note 3 though, cool looking device...jedii approved.

Um, no. Gollum's precious is a gold ring, not crystal so the solid gold iPhone would be his precious

He tries to help others to realize how terrible the design of this S4 looks cheap.

So others need his help to recognize if they like a design or not? That doesn't say much for the typical Samsung hater, that they need to be led around by the nose like that.

HTC is almost dead, most of its customers have switched to Samsung, and trolling Samsung articles won't make them come back, you know..

I don't see HTC mentioned anywhere on the article, can't you guys spend a day without trying to start wars on the comment section?
