It seems like it has become necessary for all new phones to have their own Google Play Editions and this has somewhat become an increasing and widely accepted trend. His explains why more and more manufacturers would want to step into this new platform. Now we are left wondering whether the new Samsung Galaxy S5 would have its Google Play Edition or not. Surely fans want to know what’s in store.
From what we have heard through sources, Samsung and Google have paired together to come up with such an edition and thanks to Google’s ability to spill the beans this time, we might know just what is coming out way soon. We saw the device when it popped up on the Play Store but it was quite brief and surprisingly this phone wasn’t posted under Google’s own listing. In fact it appeared under the name of Samsung Galaxy S4 however the image clearly shows the S5.
Whatever the phone is, it has been photoshopped to a great extent with its hardware and software keys at the bottom, which is not the actual case. But it is still pretty clear that it is an S5 model and since it speared at the Play Store, it surely means something. The images for the S5 Google Play Edition have already appeared and if we are right then the announcements would not be so far away.
