Samsung Galaxy S4 LTE-A gets rose gold, deep black options with faux leather backs

Samsung really loves its faux leather back design that debuted on the Galaxy Note 3. And why wouldn’t it? It’s a lot more classy than the fingerprint-prone backs on, say, the Galaxy S4, Galaxy Note II, and Galaxy Note III, after all.

The Korean company loves this design so much that it seems intent on pushing it throughout its product portfolio – even to older devices such as the Galaxy S4. Quick: remember the Samsung Galaxy S4 Black Edition? This was unveiled in Russia a few days ago, and it’s basically nothing but a vanilla S4 dressed in all-black, and coming with, you guessed it, a faux leather back.

Well, today Samsung unveiled something similar in its home country of South Korea. But this time we’re talking about the Galaxy S4 LTE-A, the still pretty rare version of the handset that comes with a Qualcomm Snapdragon 800 processor and support for 150 Mbps LTE.


Starting tomorrow the S4 LTE-A will be available in South Korea in three more color variations: rose gold white, rose gold black, and deep black. The first two feature the ‘rose gold’ faux metal details that were first seen in the rose gold Galaxy Note 3, while the latter looks exactly like the Galaxy S4 Black Edition from Russia – don’t forget the differences in terms of innards, though.

The three new options will be offered by all three carriers in Korea, presumably for equal pricing to the other Galaxy S4 LTE-A versions. It’s unclear at the moment whether they’ll ever make it to anywhere else, although the Galaxy S4 LTE-A is currently being sold in some parts of Europe, so at least there’s hope there.
