Stock Android Samsung Galaxy S IV will be available in the Google Play Store

Posted on May 16 2013 - 2:18pm by Brian

One of the biggest requests for Android devices has been the option to switch from a manufacturer’s UI overlay (i.e. Samsung’s TouchWiz or HTC’s Sense) to stock Android (AOSP). This came as a request due to the enthusiast’s love for the unadulterated speed and experience provided by Google’s pure Android experience.

On the other hand, enthusiasts of stock Android have been pigeon-holed into buying arguably inferior hardware Nexus hardware. What if Samsung made an AOSP device, that ran the stock Android experience, was sold in the Google Play store and was kept up to date with the latest Android software? Wait no more!

Okay, fine. You’ll have to wait one more month. Starting June 26th, Samsung’s Galaxy S IV will be available as a Nexus phone for a heaping $649. There won’t be any subsidy by Google so the full manufacturer MRSP is what you’ll be looking at paying, but you get all of the hardware prowess of the Galaxy S IV, with all the software perks of a Nexus device (including SIM & bootloader unlocks).
