I'm curious about the S5 release. Pretty sure there will be a S5 Google Edition, S5 Active Google Edition, S5 Mega Google Edition, and so on... -.-
Don't know if Google will buy into the other handsets next year or just release their own, also releasing a Rom wouldn't work out for anyone as Samsung don't really allow rooting so releasing a Rom would be seen as condoning it!
The active and zoom etc won't get the Google edition Rom due to the different hardware etc!
