Samsung brings the art of gadget spamming to new heights

Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini La Fluer

Are you having trouble keeping track of all the different versions of the Galaxy S4 that Samsung has released this year? If so then let’s recap: There’s the Galaxy S4 itself followed by the Galaxy S4 mini, the Galaxy S4 Active, the Galaxy S4 Zoom and the Galaxy S4 Google Edition that runs on stock Android. Now SamMobile reports that we’re about to get yet another new Galaxy S4 variant in time for the holiday season: The Galaxy S4 mini La Fluer Edition.

Just what is a “La Fluer Edition,” you ask? Well it’s basically a Galaxy S4 mini that comes with a flowery design on the back and is available in either red or white. Samsung also released a La Fluer version of the Galaxy S III last year so this is more a case of the company reprising an old gadget spam strategy instead of inventing a new one. And as far as awkward gadget names go, the Galaxy S4 mini La Fluer Edition still sounds better than the Galaxy Note 10.1 — 2014 Edition.
