Those of you salivating over the announcement of a “Google Edition” of the venerable Samsung Galaxy S 4 need not be worried that you won’t be able to buy this beast in Australia. While there’s been no official announcement of the Galaxy S 4 Google Edition in Australia — yet — we have heard from MobiCity that they will be sourcing this particular model and will have it available for purchase in Australia soon after its availability overseas.
Expected to become available in the US on 26 June for $649, our American friends will be able to use this device on either the AT&T or T-Mobile networks, meaning that such a handset is likely to work on the major network frequencies used in Australia as well.
We don’t have any word on pricing through MobiCity at this rate, though history suggests that there’ll be a little bit of a premium on the pricing to account for the cost of getting the device from the US to Australia. Those of you who might already have a Galaxy S 4, but are interested in an AOSP experience, will probably be waiting for end of June for the ROM to be released, because in all likelihood, the ROM for the Google Edition Galaxy S 4 will work on our existing handsets with just a little bit of work.
