This week Best Buy announced they’ll be getting another exclusive smartphone color for those who direct their shopping experience to the big box retailer. Just like the Metallic blue HTC One earlier this year, Samsung will now have a limited edition Best Buy exclusive Artic Blue Samsung Galaxy S4 available for almost all carriers.
It looks like Best Buy wants to offer limited edition devices with the same blue color as the Best Buy logo, as these exclusives all seem to be the same color variant. Best Buy confirmed that pre-orders are available as of today, November 8th, and the device will actually be available in-stores starting on the 14th for those interested. If you’d like a special edition GS4, Best Buy is your place.
BB Elite customers can pre-order starting today, and regular consumers will be able to get their own pre-order in starting on November 10th, then the device will arrive shortly thereafter.
Customers from Verizon, AT&T, and Sprint (sadly no T-Mobile) will be able to order the specific color variant for an unknown price, but most likely we’ll be seeing the same $199 price tag with a new 2-year contract from any of the participating carriers. Personally we like this blue better than the plastic blue colors from previous devices, and just wish that Titanium color from the Galaxy Note II would debut on the Galaxy S4 as well.
We’re just going to go ahead and call this the Best Buy Blue Gaalxy S4, which can be yours starting on November 14th in stores and online. You’ll enjoy the same 5-inch 1080p display and quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor with 2GB of RAM as the original model. Nothing’s changed here, except for the pretty vibrant color option.
