Galaxy S5 Google play edition should have been released long time ago, but unfortunately both Samsung and Google are tight lipped about the existence of such a device. Today, after Google officially released new Android Nexus devices preloaded with Android L, it looks like our wishes will be fulfilled soon.
The latest Android homepage includes a Galaxy S5 device alongside the just released Nexus devices. Google already hinted back in July that such a device exists, so what is pulling them back to release the Google Play edition of Galaxy S5.
May be Samsung and Google both were waiting for Android Lollipop official release. If Google is going to release Galaxy S5 GPE device, it will have similar specification as the original Galaxy S5.
We are expecting a Super AMOLED 1080 x 1920 pixels, 5.1 inches (432 PPI) scree, Qualcomm MSM8974AC Snapdragon 801 processor, 2GB of RAM, a 2800 mAh battery, 16 MP rear camera with 1/2.6″ sensor, 2 MP front-facing camera, 32GB storage with expandable microSD card slot.
The price will be same as Galaxy S5 of the contract price which is a solid $699.
