A few weeks ago, we learned that Samsung would be releasing a stripped-down Nexus-like version of its galaxy S4 which would be called the Google Edition S4. Shortly thereafter, HTC announced that they would be doing the same with their flagship smartphone, the HTC One.

Today, Google has launched both of the stripped-down android smartphones for preorder in the Google Play Store. Both devices run stock versions of Android 4.2.2 Jelly Bean and will begin shipping to customers on July 9.

The Google edition of HTC's One retails for $599.99 while Samsung's Galaxy S4 Google Edition retails slightly higher at a price of $649.99. For Android purist, these two phones represent the holy grail of smartphone technology, but they are not just for those who wish for a pure Android experience; they represent a way for more consumers to buy high-end smartphones without a contract and without all the added features that manufactures normally bloat smartphones with.
