Google’s Sundar Pichai just announced the long rumored HTC One “Google Edition” – the device will run Android 4.2.2 AOSP and will be available starting June 26.
Rumors about a stock Android HTC One version emerged almost the minute Hugo Barra announced the Google Edition of the Samsung Galaxy S4. Though HTC was quick to refute the rumors, today on the D11 conference in Los Angeles, Android boss Sundar Pichai made the “HTC One with Nexus User Experience” is real.
On the hardware side, it’s the same HTC One we’ve come to know and love. In the inside though, it’s all stock Android 4.2.2 AOSP. Just like the Galaxy S4 Google Edition, the One Google Edition will sell unlocked from the Play Store. The device will ship on the same day as the Galaxy S4 Google Edition, June 26.
As for the price of the device, it’s $599 for the 32GB version, which is $50 cheaper than the similar Samsung device.
