Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition Already certified by Bluetooth SIG, Says Reports

Written By:

Remember when Google previously teased a Google Play edition (GPe) of the Galaxy S5, and said that the device was in the works? Well, it seems like the Galaxy S5 Google Play edition might have already received the certification from Bluetooth SIG as well.

Revealed first via the Droid Guy, reports have stated that the upcoming Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Play edition could arrive sooner than expected with reports of the device already receiving certification via the Bluetooth SIG making rounds on the web.

Samsung Galaxy S5 Google Play Edition Could Already be Certified

While nothing can be said with certainty at the moment, but an SM-G900FG model number listed on the Bluetooth SIG website with the G at the end of the model number could be a pretty good clue that it's actually showing the non-TouchWiz stock Android-toting version of Samsung's latest flagship smartphone.

"First things first, let me crush your hopes by saying no, the Bluetooth approval docs contain no insight on specs whatsoever. Or availability, so we're still left wondering if Sammy indeed plans to launch the GS5 Prime solely in Korea," the Droid Guy report states.

"The only tidbit transpiring from said docs is both gadgets support Bluetooth 4.0. Also, their formal introductions and subsequent commercial releases should be right around the corner, since getting this stamp of approval is usually one of the last formalities ahead of announcements."

The report says that while it's not 100 percent sure the SM-G900FG is the stock Android-running GS5, "but what else could the 'G' stand for if not Google? Besides, last year's Galaxy S4 Google Play Edition was branded that way after carrying the GT-I9505G alias."
