We reported some time last week that there’s strong rumours surrounding a possible release of the HTC One Google Edition. Similar to the Samsung Galaxy S IV Google edition announced at Google I/O on May 15th the HTC One Google Edition will come pre-loaded with vanilla Android rather than HTC’s Sense skin.
The HTC One Google Edition will be launching on the Google Play Store priced at $599(around £400) on June 26th along side the Galaxy S IV which will be priced at $649 (around £450). I’m expecting the sale of these devices to go down the same as if not worse than the Google Nexus 4 with handsets selling out within minutes of the check out pages going live.
There’s nothing different about either device other than the operating system so specs remain the same though you can expect them to be unlocked so you can use them on whichever carrier you choose!
