Hi,

In Samsung Galaxy S4, the android version is pure? I mean, if I purchase Galaxy S4, will it be compatible the future android version, released from google? Means, I will never need to wait on samsung for phone specific software update? I can directly download that version from android website and update it on galaxy s4?

For that you have to buy the Samsung Galaxy S4 play edition

if you buy the normal S4 version it will came with Samsung firmware and not with the untouched Android google version.

Instead receiving the very new updates from google i will have to wait that the Samsung release the firmware to your country ID, even if you buy it unbranded...
