HTC might be preparing a Google Play Edition of the HTC One (2014)
It seems that the HTC One (M8) will also have a Sense UI-free version, as a Google Play Edition of the much-anticipated device is being heavily rumored. Earlier today, most of the new apps from the new iteration of Sense UI already landed on Google Play and a single line of text in the description of one of these, HTC Gallery, already spurred a lot of speculations that the Taiwanese manufacturer might release a stock Android version of its flagship for 2014.


This comes as little surprise – as you might recall, HTC released a Google Play Edition of the HTC One last year, so it would be rather surprising if the soon-to-be-unveiled flagship doesn't receive a Sense UI-free version, which runs on stock Android. There are no clues, however, when the HTC One (M8) Google Play Edition would be launched.

Update: The rumors turned out to be true - the HTC One (M8) Google Play Edition is now available for pre-order on Google Play. The device is running vanilla Android 4.4.2 KitKat and is priced at $699.
