Whenever a major flagship device comes out, a part of us always wishes that it ran stock Android. That’s why Google Play edition devices were created: to put stock Android on your favorite flagship hardware. This year, the only new flagship GPe device that we’ve seen so far is the HTC One (M8), but that could be changing soon.
As we can see from the photo (right), brought to us by @evleaks, there appears to be a Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Play edition in the works. That’s unsurprising considering that last year’s Galaxy S4 had a GPe variant. One confusing aspect is that the above photo shows a Galaxy S5 running KitKat with on-screen nav buttons above the Galaxy S5′s hardware buttons. We’ll chalk it up to an early leak glitch, but we dearly hope that it won’t look like that in the final product.
Would you be interested in a Galaxy S5 GPe?
