HTC One Google Edition Coming June 26

Sundar Pichai, Google’s Senior Vice President for Android, Chrome, and Apps, has announced that his company will be rolling out the HTC One Google Edition beginning June 26th. The upcoming mobile phone, which will run in stock Android, will be sold for $599 on the Google Play Store.

The announcement comes after Google revealed the availability details of Samsung Galaxy S4 with stock Android, which will also be available at the Play Store beginning June 26 for $649.

The HTC One Google Edition will feature a stock version of Android Jelly Bean 4.2.2 and updates to the OS will be sent at the same time along with Nexus devices and the Play version of Galaxy S4. The smartphone will also sport 32GB of internal storage and GSM cellular network standards, along with every other bells and whistles expected from HTC One, including the one-ultrapixel camera that works very well in extremely low-light situations.

HTC One has been well-received by critics since its unveiling, and coming up with a stock Android version instead of the grid-like, Windows Phone copycat would surely be a hit among those who expect a lot from mid-range smartphones.

The HTC One Google Edition will only be available in the United States during its retail debut, with no word on whether this handset will cross borders and oceans in the coming months.
