If you went on Samsung's Open Source Release Center today you would have seen an interesting appearance of a device coded GT-I9505G. As we know already the I9505 is the Galaxy S4, but could the 'G' stand for 'Google'? We know we are expecting Samsung to release the Nexus Galaxy S4 anytime soon, as they already announced it at the I/O event last month. The S4 LTE-A edition is also ready to come out in only two days. There are hints that indicate this could be the name of the S4 Google but this could also be something entirely different. However it doesn't really matter at this point as Samsung already showed us the device, so we know it's coming. It's just a matter of when and where. Whether it's the I9505G or something totally different, this is just for our personal fun to know. You can take a look at Samsung's Open Source Release Center by yourself and see the kernel source.
