The first images of the phone have hit the web. Apparently, the phone was recently showcased in Croatia at some unknown event and a GSMarena reader was able to snap a few pictures of the phone for us to enjoy.
As per the tipster, the phone packs a 8MP rear camera, a downgrade from Galaxy S4 normal version, which features a 13MP rear camera. Among other details, the phone is expected to come with 1.9GHz quad-core Snapdragon 600 processor, 1080p display with 480PPI and 2GB of RAM.
The Android version is likely to be Android 4.2.2. Other details are unclear at the moment, but we can expect few changes from the Galaxy S4 retail edition.
