Samsung Galaxy S 4 Google Edition unveiled

This is interesting. If you don't like the bits and pieces Samsung puts on its flagship smartphone, you can now opt for the Samsung Galaxy S 4 Google Edition.

The handset comes with Android 4.2 Jelly Bean for the operating system, but notably doesn't come with Samsung's TouchWiz interface. So if you want the power of the S 4, but with an experience akin to the Nexus 4, this could be the phone for you.

There are other benefits too. The device is fully unlocked, so you can choose your own network and Google is promising faster updates when new versions of its operating system lands. That's a big thing in light of how long these things take getting to Samsung smartphones as a rule.

As for the phone hardware, that's exactly the same as the one we got our hands-on with back in March, as you would expect, headed up by a 1.9 GHz quad-core processor, a 13-megapixel auto-focus camera and a 5-inch full HD AMOLED screen.

The US price is $649 (£426), with 26 June being the date of sale online.
