Samsung is known for releasing multiple variants of its flagship models to keep the diverse consumer base satisfied. While rumors regarding the Galaxy S5 Active and Galaxy S5 Prime are rife, the South Korean tech giant has quietly launched the Galaxy S4 Value Edition in Europe. The handset was spotted in a Bluetooth SIG listing back in February and now it is available.
The smartphone is available in Netherlands through e-commerce portals and it is priced at EUR 398 (approx. Rs 32,000). However, Samsung is yet to launch the Galaxy S4 Value Edition officially.
Spotted by GSM Info, the Galaxy S4 Value Edition boasts similar specifications as the yesteryear flagship model, but the only difference lies in the operating system. Well, the latest offering is based on Android 4.4 KitKat platform out-of-the-box.
At this point of time, we are not sure when exactly Samsung will be releasing this smartphone for the global markets. Also, the original Galaxy S4 has already received the Android 4.4 KitKat update making its confusing on why Samsung has to be launching its Value Edition now.
To recap on the specifications, the Galaxy S4 Value Edition boasts of a 5 inch FHD display that packs a resolution of 1920 x 1080 pixels and powered by a Exynos 5 Octa 5410 SoC paired with 2 GB of RAM.
