During Google I/O, Google announced it would be making a Samsung Galaxy S4 available that features a Nexus user experience as it will have stock Android Jelly Bean and will receive updates as soon as the company rolls them out. The Google-approved Galaxy S4 is expected to be made available in the U.S. on June 26, and it looks like it’ll only be available in the U.S. at the moment.
Google recently confirmed there are no plans to take its Samsung Galaxy S4 International, which is a shame considering the device is running stock Android, which means it’ll be completely free to additional features injected into the device by Samsung. Google didn’t give any specific reasons as to why they decided not to take its Galaxy S4 overseas, and we won’t even begin to speculate on their reasoning.
Even though Google won’t make its Galaxy S4 available overseas, this certainly shouldn’t stop you non-U.S. residents from picking it up as we’re sure you can find a number of ways to get the device in your hands through a number of online retailers, or by simply visiting the U.S. and having it shipped to wherever you’re located.
