Google took the center stage yesterday at the on-going Google I/O 2013 which is the search engine giant’s major developer event and the company made quite a few major announcements and launches. One such interesting announcement was the launch of Korean giant Samsung’s latest flagship, the Samsung Galaxy S4 with stock Android OS out-of-the-box. Yes, you read it right. The Samsung Galaxy S4 will now be available via the Google Play Store and will have a Nexus-like user experience and will not have Samsung’s TouchWiz UI.
Also, Google has announced that the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be LTE enabled and its bootloader will be unlocked by default which should be a great news for all the geeks. The internal storage on the Nexus-like Galaxy S4 will be 16 GB which obviously will be expandable. The device is expected to be available only in White color option and will be unlocked from carriers. The smartphone will be compatible with 4G LTE signals T-Mobile and AT&T in the US and has been priced at a pricey $649.
One big advantage of getting this Pure Google Android Samsung Galaxy S4 is that the device is bound to get the Android OS upgrades much quicker than the other devices out there. All the other specifications of the Pure Google Android Samsung Galaxy S4 version remain the same. The smartphone will go on sale from June 26th, 2013 and will be bought in the US from play.google.com. Would you buy it or give it a pass?
