The Verizon Galaxy S4 from Samsung has debuted in a third color today with a new autumn brown joining the current black and white options on the nation’s largest 4G LTE service provider.
Just a few short days ago, the Samsung Galaxy S4 was rumored to be heading to the U.S. in not one, but two new colors. While Sprint was rumored to be getting a purple Galaxy S4, Verizon was rumored to be getting a brown colored Galaxy S4 which would join the white and black variants that arrived on the carrier at launch.
Today, Verizon revealed its brown Galaxy S4 which is now available on the carrier’s website for $199.99 on a new contract and $650 for those that wish to own it without a contract. Unfortunately, Verizon’s new ‘Autumn Brown’ Galaxy S4 is not available in 32GB form, at least not yet.
While the device sports a brand new color, it doesn’t sport any new features, instead coming with the same features that are found on both the white and black versions of Verizon’s Galaxy S4. That means that it comes with a 5-inch 1080p display, a quad-core processor, a 13MP camera, Android 4.2 Jelly Bean and Samsung’s TouchWiz interface which offers a number of useful features.
The device also runs on Verizon’s 4G LTE network which is currently the largest in the land, boasting well over 400 markets across the United States, with a roll out that is expected to be completed by the end of the year.
The turn around here is worth noting as new colors typically don’t arrive in the United States for many months down the line. Last year’s brown Galaxy S3 didn’t arrive until the month of October.
It’s unclear if Verizon plans to offer anything other than the current Galaxy S4 colors though given that Samsung typically brings an assortment of options to the table, it’s possible that we could see more colors arrive for Verizon’s Samsung flagship.
