Google Play Store now showing only three GPe devices


The number of Google Play edition devices in the Google Play Store has dropped to just three. The Sony Z Ultra GPe, HTC One (M7) GPe and LG G Pad 8.3 GPe have all vanished from the virtual shelves without warning. Remaining devices are limited to the HTC One (M8) GPe, Samsung Galaxy S 4 GPe and Motorola Moto G GPe. No word from Google has been given on the sudden change.

If we had to guess, it’s simply a clearing of past devices that haven’t sold particularly well. The three devices that were removed either have a newer version, as in the case of the One (M7), or simply haven’t been very popular. This could also be an indicator of bigger things to come. A Galaxy S5 GPe has been leaked multiple times and we wouldn’t be surprised to see another phone or two refresh the stock of GPe devices.

Leave your best guess for the disappearance down in the comments!

    I would LOVE a G3 Google Play Edition. Won’t happen, but I would love it. GS5 is nice but I think G3 is the best one hardware wise and to have pure Android on it would be fantastic.

      OMG YES. The hardware on the phone is, for all intents and purposes, perfect. With stock Android, I’m not sure a better phone would exist.

    Would be great if there’e a GPe for LG G3, Strong hardware, good shape and look, and a pure Google experience
