How would you like to score a pretty sweet deal on a Galaxy S4? For today only, DailySteals is offering the international variant of Samsung's flagship phone for just $679. The same model appeared on eBay Daily Deals a couple of weeks ago for $700, but only stocked 200 units and sold out before most people could get their orders in. Amazon's current lowest price is $710 + $5 shipping.

Specs:

  • 5" 1080p Super AMOLED HD display (441 PPI)
  • 1.6GHz octa-core Exynos processor 
  • 2GB DDR3 RAM
  • 13 MP Rear shooter, 2MP front camera
  • 16GB Storage, microSD card slot with support up to 64GB
  • Android 4.2.2 (Jellybean)
  • 802.11a/b/g/n/ac Wi-Fi
  • IR Blaster
  • MHL 2.0
  • Temperature and humidity sensors
  • Corning Gorilla Glass 3
  • 2,600mAH battery
  • 136.6 x 69.8 x 7.9 mm, 130g
  • Available in 2 colors: Black Mist, White Frost

This is the factory unlocked international version, which means it isn't tied to any specific carrier. Keep in mind, this model doesn't work on CDMA carriers like Sprint and Verizon, and there is no support for LTE either. This version also differs from US variants by coming equipped with Samsung's octa-core Exynos processor instead of Qualcomm's quad-core Snapdragon 600. Take a look at David's review of the Sprint variant to get a pretty good idea of what you're in store for. Only the 16 GB version is available, but that probably isn't a deal killer since storage is expandable with a MicroSD card.

Daily Steals does not charge extra for shipping. Unfortunately, the deal-a-day site does not send packages outside of the United States. If you're ready to exercise your credit card on Samsung's latest and greatest, hurry over and get one before stock runs out on this offer, too.

    Specs on daily deals shows snapdragon, which is the i9505 model but they claim device is the i9500 model. Confusing

      DailySteals and Woot are both notoriously bad about putting the wrong specs on sale pages. It also claims LTE is a market-dependent feature, which indicates somebody really just copied a product description somewhere. The most trustworthy thing on a page is usually the model number.

      However, the DailySteals listing actually shows the Exynos processor, it is just written very poorly. "Quad-core 1.6 GHz Cortex-A15 & quad-core 1.2 GHz" is a match to Samsung's processor. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Samsung_Galaxy_S4#Quad-core_variant

      Octa-core Exynos 5: 4 x A15 cores at 1.6 GHz, and 4 x A7 cores at 1.2 GHz

      Quad-core Snapdragon 600: 4 x A7 cores at 1.9 GHz (Krait 300)

    Explain to me why I would pay $679 for a 16GB Galaxy S4, when I can get a 16GB Nexus 4 for $349? Let's even say the specs for the S4 are a bit better....$300 better?

      Why should I explain if you're the one buying?

    Better deal: Don't buy a GS4 =)
