Google Play edition Galaxy S5 looks imminent


We’ve got Google’s Play edition of Android devices on our minds this afternoon, just bringing you news of the big price break the GPe Sony Z Ultra is getting. But that may just be the opening act to some slightly more significant GPe news, as a little hint pops up that may point to the upcoming availability of a GPe Samsung Galaxy S5.

We were only just wondering when the GPe GS4 might see a price cut like the Z Ultra’s enjoying, and it turns out we’re not the only ones giving that model a closer look this afternoon. While the product page for that phone remains unchanged, a little tweak has popped-up on Google’s main listing for GPe models – and as you can see above, the thumbnail for the GPe GS4 has been replaced with an image of the GS5, with that unmistakable heart rate monitor just below the rear camera.

Our instinct has us thinking that this means the GPe GS5 is nearly ready to debut, but we suppose there’s a chance this slip-up could occur independently of a pending launch. Still, that image had to come from somewhere, and its presence here is all but assurance that a Google Play edition Galaxy S 5 is coming at one point or another.

The question is, when it gets here, will you be jumping at the opportunity to buy one?
