Samsung has yet another version of the Galaxy S4 and Galaxy S4 Mini on the way. This time it's all in the finish.

Announced on Friday, the "Black Edition" of the handsets uses a dark black front and a faux leather rear cover that echoes the design of the Samsung Galaxy Note 3. Just keep in mind that the changes are cosmetic only, and Samsung has left the phone's internals alone.

As of today, these Black Edition devices are shown only on Samsung's Russian site. If Samsung hopes to bring these to additional markets, it'll have to act fast; the Galaxy S5 will be here before we know it.
