Both Google Play editions of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S4 were made available for purchase just a few days ago, and already we’ve seen the ROM for the Google Play Edition version of the HTC One makes its way onto the Internet. Merely hours after that ROM was released, SamMobile now claims they have an early 4.3 build for the Samsung Galaxy S4, which was reportedly spotted earlier today.

SamMobile claims the ROM they have is from the Google Play Edition variant of the Samsung Galaxy S4 and is completely functional when tested on other Galaxy S4s, although there’s no way to verify their claim. Google has yet to announce Android 4.3, so hearing SamMobile not only has an early build of the update, but also that it’s able to run on the Galaxy S4 seems a bit of stretch.

For all we know, it could end up being a fake, but regardless of that, it’ll still get you a stock Android experience on your Galaxy S4 and save you hundreds of dollars from buying the actual Google Play Edition of the Galaxy S4.
