We’re now only hours away from Google I/O bringing us the latest announcements concerning Android, but that gives us just enough time to check out some last-minute rumors. It may be too early still for news of a Nexus 5, but could we learn of something a little different but up that same alley? One rumor claims that Samsung could bring word of a Nexus-like pure Android version of its flagship Galaxy S 4.

Supposedly envisioned to address demand for a higher-end premium phone that offers a Nexus-like software experience, Samsung and Google would announce a Galaxy S 4 Google Edition running AOSP code.

The rumor doesn’t offer much in the way of details as to how this phone would launch, but one theory suggests that T-Mobile could be interested. That would actually make a lot of sense, as this GS4 GE would presumably sell full-price, and that would fit nicely in with the carrier’s EIP system.

This has the potential to be big news, even if it’s not a Nexus device, proper. Something that’s “Nexus enough” but still has features like microSD expansion, no longer present on regular Nexus devices, could find itself a good number of fans.
