Samsung Galaxy S4 Black Edition goes on sale in UK for 499 Samsung has aimed high for the rich and/or gullible, launching their "Black Edition" Galaxy S4 in the UK for a whopping 499.
The company first confirmed the device last month, but did not disclose which markets would see it.

Available now exclusively in the UK through Phones4U, the unlocked unit will sell at a massive premium (about $825 USD) compared to the standard S4, despite having the same exact specs. The S4 sells, on average, for 325.80 ($540 USD) in the region.

Having the same internal specs, the Black Edition is different in that it has a black faux leather back cover, black accessories, and exclusive wallpapers and music tracks pre-installed.

The device goes on sale on April 11th.

Yeah, I bet they have done their research on this... it's probably limited edition.

Its a lot easier being righteous than right.

Are you kidding me samsung? Its bad enough that they have a whole heap of devices all over the place but now jacking up the price because its back and has black stuff with it? I how much different kinds of S4's do they really have now? I mean the S5 almost exactly identical so you can call that an S4 too.
