The Galaxy S4 Value Edition, first spotted by GSM Info, comes with identical specifications as its original sibling launched last year, with the only difference being that the former runs the latest Android 4.4 KitKat out-of-the-box.
Unfortunately, there is no word on when the Galaxy S4 Value Edition will be released in other European countries and other markets outside Europe. It's worth noting that the Galaxy S4 (Review | Pictures) started receiving Android 4.4.2 KitKat update earlier this year. The Android KitKat update added a lot of goodies from 2014 flagship smartphone, the Galaxy S5 (Review | Pictures) to the Galaxy S4.
Considering that the Galaxy S4 Value Edition comes with similar innards as the Galaxy S4, we wonder why the South Korean launched a new handset featuring the same specifications - unless it is trying to emphasis the value-for-money attractiveness of its year-old flagship.
The Galaxy S4 Value Edition comes with a 5-inch full-HD display with a resolution of 1080x1920 pixels, and pixel density of 441ppi. It is powered by 1.9GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 and includes 2GB of RAM. Other specifications include 13-megapixel rear camera, 2-megapixel front-facing camera, 16GB inbuilt storage, expandable storage support via microSD card (up to 32GB), and 2600mAh battery.
