Ouch...

It’s safe to assume that the Google Edition HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 won’t even sell as well as the Nexus 4. Both phones are at least twice as expensive as the Nexus 4, at $599 for the HTC One and $649 for the Galaxy S4. They’re also only available in the United States, where they must compete against $200 subsidized versions of the One and GS4 (non-Google Edition) from wireless carriers.

Shipping July 9
There's official spec/reviews hitting the web now (dated 26th around 1pm).. so only few hrs old

I just had a thought, if i purchase a normal S4 i9505 version, can i flash it with nexus software? I have read somewere recently its available for download from samsung.

So does it mean it makes it a "nexus" version of sorts? 

Please shed some light, thanks.

Took me a while to get my head around what the title of the thread actually meant, maybe it should read "Google versions of HTC One and Galaxy S4 up on US Play store now"

That's what they're described as by Hugo Barra so I thought if anyone knew the correct terminology it's him Wink

OK I see the difference, he says editions, you say versions which I assumed to mean a new version of Google Play, hence my confusion :)

They are actually called Google Play Editions.

"The phone is factory unlocked with quad-band EDGE, tri-band HSPA+ (850/1900/2100MHz) and quad-band LTE (700/850/1700/1900MHz)."
No 1800 LTE... but 700MHz is available for one day. (is it even the same kind of 700MHz nz will be using? )

I tried to search a lot on google and xda but cant seem to find answer for my doubt : (perhaps am using some wrong terms please excuse )


can the S4 with google nexus firmware (software) be flashed upon on a general galaxy S4 ( with stock standard bloatware )


can someone please provide some links , to point me in the right direction. 

I am planning to upgrade soon, but dont know if i can get it from the US so have to flash the local one, as I am not really a fan of Samsung interface (look, feel , etc )


Thanks

The US 700Mhz band plan is not the same as what will be used in NZ 700Mhz APT band plan

So does that mean that under the 700mhz band, there are several other "sub bands " like 710, 720, 740 and it depends on the carrier what they chose to go with?

So a manufacturer has to come with variants of a model specific for their regional markets to cater for their frequencies?
