This is Android 5.0 Lollipop running on the Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Play edition

Android 5.0 Lollipop with TouchWiz on the Samsung Galaxy S5? Check. Android 5.0 Lollipop with TouchWiz on the Samsung Galaxy S4? Here you go. Android 5.0 Lollipop with TouchWiz on the Galaxy Note 4? You bet.

At this point, we've already seen the newest and sweetest version of Google's platform run on the hottest Samsung devices flagships from the past year or so. Yet, a notable device had not been invited to the party until now - every purist's dream, the Google Play Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S4, which runs stock and unaltered Android.

Due to the fact that its firmware is just marginally different from the raw Android images that made the rounds in the beginning of the month, the Galaxy S4 GPe has all the chances to become the first Samsung device to officially receive Android 5.0 Lollipop. However, we have little to no clue when that will happen.

Thanks to the folks over at SamMobile, we've just been treated to a collection of screenshots that show us how the interface of the device will look right after the update hits it. You guessed this one right - there's no TouchWiz, just pure, Material Design-inspired Android. Check it out below.
