Samsung Galaxy S5 Released in Europe at €398

Samsung Galaxy S4 Value Edition

After the South Korea-based phone maker introduced the Samsung Galaxy S5 Black Edition, now they are introducing another variant of their 2013 flagship called Galaxy S4 Value Edition. The smartphone made its first appearance in February, when it was spotted in a Bluetooth SIG listing.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Value Edition is now available for purchase at Dutch online retailer Belsimpel at price of €398 (abut $543). The main difference between the standard model and the Galaxy S4 Value Edition is that the later one runs Android 4.4.2 KitKat out of the box, so if you were expecting something spectacular I’m sorry to disappoint you.
In my opinion the release of the Samsung Galaxy S4 Value Edition is pointless given how easy is to update your Android phone to new software versions. Even though the new terminal’s name contains “Value Edition” it’s still pricey. Maybe other retailers will sell it for less, but that remains to be seen.
In case you aren’t familiar with the technical specifications of the Samsung Galaxy S4, I remind you that the smartphone is compatible with Quad-band GSM/GPRS/EDGE, quad-band 3G with HSPA, and LTE standards, it has a 5-inch Full HD Super AMOLED display with Gorilla Glass 3 protection, and a Snapdragon 600 SoC with four Krait 300 CPU cores clocked at 1.9 GHz and Adreno 320 GPU.
Just like the standard model, the Galaxy S4 Value Edition arrives with 2 GB of RAM, 13 MP primary cam, 2 MP secondary cam, 16 or 32 GB of storage expandable using microSD cards, and a 2,600 mAh battery.
Connectivity-wise it brings Wi-Fi a/b/g/n/ac, Wi-Fi Direct and DLNA, Bluetooth 4.0, NFC, IR blaster, 3.5 mm audio jack, and microUSB 2.0.
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Value Edition is currently available for purchase only in Netherlands, but it should hit other markets as well. Why would you bother to buy this model instead of the standard one? We don’t know yet, but hopefully Samsung will enlighten us in the coming days.
