Is this the Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition?
This alleged Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition appears to be of the golden variety, but this doesn’t mean we shouldn’t expect to see the handset in other color versions (like black, white, or blue - the ones that we’re familiar with from the regular S5).
Specs-wise, the Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition is (probably) not different from the S5 that’s already available to buy around the world. The big difference is that the GPE variant will be sold unlocked (likely for more than $600), being devoid of Samsung’s TouchWiz, and offering a stock Android experience - like all the other Google Play Edition devices.
There is no word on when the Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition is supposed to be released, but we’ll be here to let you know when it happens.
