The Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Nexus (check out Samsung Galaxy S4 Google Nexus) and the HTC One with Nexus User Experience run an unadulterated version of Android. However, owners of the handset would have to wait just a bit longer for the updates to roll out.
The news comes to us from Droid-Life (check out site here). According to the site, “We reached out to Google PR to get some clarification on the subject, and have news that you should have expected from the beginning. Actually, this is essentially what Google told us from day 1, when they first announced the “Nexus experience” phones. Updates will be timely, as Google will work directly with HTC and Samsung.”
Google told the site, “On background, we will be working very closely with Samsung and HTC on future software updates for these devices and they will receive software updates shortly after a new version is released.”
The site added, “So there you have it. Whether they are coming directly from Google or not, they have committed to supplying updates “shortly” after new versions of Android are released. Even with kernels being built by the OEMs, there won’t be significant delays or any other shenanigans.”
