At the Google I/O held place in mid-May, Google announced the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition smartphone, another version of the Galaxy S4 with pure Android operating system, which offers Nexus-like experience.
Not only Samsung Galaxy S4 version that comes in Google Edition, two weeks later, HTC officially announced the HTC One ‘Google Edition’. Google Edition version of HTC One also runs pure Android OS like Nexus devices.

It will run Android 4.2.2 or Android 4.3 Jelly Bean. Like Google Edition of HTC One and Galaxy S4, it will be sold only in U.S. through Play Store. The rumor says that it will be priced at $599 per unit.
