Google’s action-packed Google I/O keynote now may include one less surprise. As details of Google’s big announcements continue to leak, Geek reports that one device set to debut on stage at I/O is a brand new version of Samsung’s popular Galaxy S4. The “Galaxy S4 Google Edition” will reportedly be a Pure Google version of Samsung’s flagship smartphone. According to the report, it will run stock Android (perhaps version 4.3, which is rumored to be unveiled at the show as well) and it will launch in June with support for T-Mobile’s network.

If the rumor pans out, the Galaxy S4 Google Edition will be the latest of five different versions of Samsung’s flagship phone. Beyond the original model and the Google version, Samsung is also reportedly prepping the Galaxy S4 Zoom with a 16-megapixel camera that supports 10x optical zoom, the ruggedized Galaxy S4 Activ, and a more manageable version of the S4 dubbed Galaxy S4 mini.
