Although many were expecting a new Nexus 7 and a white Nexus 4, Google surprised everyone by taking the wraps off a new Samsung Galaxy S4 running stock Android Jelly Bean. What that means is a Galaxy S4 minus Samsung's TouchWiz UI. To put things into perspective, it's basically a Google version of the phone, making it a Nexus phone from a user's standpoint.
Apart from the elimination of bloatware, something that Samsung is known for, the new Samsung Galaxy S4 will also support LTE. The rest of the hardware specs remains unchanged. It will be available on Google Play this June for the price of $649.
