CNET News Video: Google reveals Galaxy S4 running pure Android

1:34 /

Google showed off a new Samsung Galaxy S4 running pure Android and offering a skinless Nexus experience at Google I/O in San Francisco. The unlocked smartphone will be available on AT&T and T-Mobile with LTE support for $649 at the Google Play store.

We continue to be blown away by the great new devices that are coming out from our partners. In fact, just like this one, this particular Galaxy S4 from Samsung. Something that is not available yet, but I wanna show you anyways. So, that's my Home screen. I've got my Google apps here in my Google folder. If you scrolled to the left, that's my Music Widget, my calendar; on the other screen, going to notifications, a pretty clean notification shade, and quick settings also right at your fingertips. What you're seeing here is real. This is a Samsung Galaxy S4 running Android 4.2 Jelly Bean, with the same software experience that we ship on our Nexus devices. It's Google's take on Android, and it feels really awesome on the Galaxy S4. This version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be available directly through Google Play in the U.S. We're selling an unlocked model that works on both AT&T and T-Mobile with LTE support, 16 gigabytes of memory expandable with an SD card, of course; and also, it is bootloader unlocked. I knew you'd like that. This version of the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be on sale starting on June 26 on Google Play for $649.
