    Google has just unveiled the Samsung Galaxy S4: Google Edition which runs stock Android Jelly Bean. The Google Edition SGS4 is coming only in the U.S. and supports both T-Mobile and AT&T LTE networks. The device will be sold directly from Google's Play Store and will be available starting from June 26 for $649.

    The Google Edition Galaxy S4 has an unlocked bootloader and comes with 16GB storage. The device will receive Android updates directly from Google, which means the device will be updated at the same time as Google's own Nexus devices. Google didn't talked about the Galaxy S4 much so we don't know if the device features the Qualcomm 600 or the Exynos 5 Octa but we will update you as soon as we get any more information.S4-GE
