Unveiled at Google I/O 2013, the new S4 will run the latest version of Android and will receive updates through Google. This means owners will get the latest and greatest version of Android right away and won’t have to wait for Samsung to customize TouchWiz. It’ll have an unlocked bootloader and support both T-Mobile and AT&T frequencies.
