Samsung has always made power packed hardware, but it’s TouchWiz user interface has often bogged down the user experience. For long it seemed like a pipe dream to imagine a Samsung flagship phone running stock Android. That was till today. As we reported in the morning Google has announced a custom version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 that will run stock Android, without the TouchWiz skin.

Google has also announced that it will support LTE which probably means that it will be the quad-core variant running the Qualcomm Snapdragon 600 CPU clocked at 1.9GHz.
The device will be available via the Google Play store in June for $649 and it will have 16Gb of storage and will come with an unlocked bootloader, which mean this will be a tweaker delight.
Google also says that like the Nexus smartphones, this model will directly receive updates from Google, so there will be no delay in an Android update.
The phone will be available from Play Store from June 26 onwards.
