Samsung has always tried to do things which have pleased its users and the latest rumors surrounding the galaxy S4 will please you for sure. According to sources of Geek.com, Samsung is all set to release a Google edition of the galaxy S4 in the Google I/O which is starting off tomorrow.
So, what do you mean by the so called ‘Google edition’ galaxy s4?
Well, here it simply means that you can get the galaxy S4 running on vanilla android. The software on the device would be completely clutter free, without any manufacturer UI or carrier specific apps and would give you a true android experience. Although some may say that Samsung’s touchwiz UI is pretty impressive, most of them don’t agree to it. So a Galaxy S4 running on stock android is sure to please a lot users and we won’t be surprised if this special edition soon goes out of stock.
People love stock android and the demand for nexus devices clearly proves this point. We have seen many users flash their OS with custom ROMs like CyanogenMod, which was the only option to use stock android on their phones. With the company directly selling Google edition S4s, users don’t have to go through this hassle.
With a more than impressive hardware and excellent software like stock android, this device would cater the needs of all those users who are looking for a true android experience. The device would be initially available on T Mobile starting from June and may even come to other carriers in the future. The price of the device is not yet announced but we expect it to be pretty much near to the original S4 price. Anyways, if the sources from geek.com are correct, then we don’t have to wait for long as more details would be released in tomorrow’s Google I/O.
