The new Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition seems to be Google’s crown jewel for the foreseeable future. Like Google’s own Nexus devices, the Galaxy S4 Google Edition comes with stock Android with continuous, dedicated update coming straight from Google. The device will feature the latest version of Android, version 4.3 Jelly Bean. It remains unclear as to whether or not the device will be the Exynos 5 octa core version of the device or not, but it will feature LTE and come fully unlocked, that includes the bootloader. The Galaxy S4 Google Edition will go on sale on June 26 for a staggering $649.
Google seems to have their heart in the right place with the Galaxy S4 and considering their sales thus far, Samsung may be looking at a successful year ahead.
