Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition spotted on Bluetooth SIG

Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition spotted on Bluetooth SIG
The Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Edition, the device that will bring a Nexus-like experience in a Galaxy wrapper, has passed one more step on its way to U.S. shelves and that’s the Bluetooth Special Interest Group (SIG).

The Google edition of the Galaxy S4 will support Bluetooth 4.0 with its low energy profile and with those following profiles: HSP, AVRCP, OPP, PAN, HID, A2DP, HFP, PBAP, DI.

It will likely add an even bigger boost to the already record-shattering sales of the Galaxy S4. The 2013 Samsung Android flagship sold 10 million units in less than a month of availability.

The Samsung Galaxy S4 will go on sale on the U.S. Play Store on June 26th for $649.

I am wondering the same. Those sensors, camera features, display modes and S Health will be the only things (okay ! not 'only') I'll be missing from GS4 Nexus edition ! Also, does anyone know if the actual camera quality will be different from regular GS4 ? As I believe this one will be configured by Google.

What do you mean what happened? Nexus phones utilize whatever technology are in them, I see no reason why wouldn't the system read IR and health sensor data, you may just have to sideload a Play Store app to use them.

the gs4 sensors are kernel deep. touchwizui is kernel deep. if the stock 4.2.2 android is used and is just like nexus 4, then those sensors will not be utilized because the stock android 4.2.2 will not have any code in it to utilize it. which leads us back to thethird's original question. will this be a pure stock android experience? or will samsung add the gs4 sensor capability to just a stock android without touchwiz? also, the stock android camera interface doesnt have half the stuff the touchwiz camera interface does. will google or samsung include those extra camera features found in touchwiz to the stock android without having touchwiz ui? we'll know in june.

your better off buying the original GS4 and rooting it, at least you get the features and a smoother experience.

Do you think that they'll make the "Google" version of the Note II? It may be wishful thinking, but that'd be great for me. The main reason why I love the 32GB Nexus7 is because I dont have to deal with themanufacturer bloatware like you would with Samsung tablets like the Note 8.0 Again.................wishful thinking, but it wouldn't hurt to make one
