By Norman Chan

Will go on sale June 24th, for $650.

It may not be one of the infamous freebies Google is giving away at its I/O conference, but the Samsung Galaxy S4 will be sold by Google starting on June 24th. This version of the S4 will run a stock version of Android 4.2, providing what Google is calling the "Nexus user experience." Timely Android updates are promised. It'll also be bootloader unlocked and will support GSM LTE basebands (AT&T and T-Mobile). The phone, with 16GB of internal storage, will be priced at $650. This is the one we'll be buying for testing.
