Kernel Source Released for the Google Play Editions of the HTC One and (Possibly) the Samsung Galaxy S 4

For those keeping track, the Google Editions of the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4 can now be purchased from Google Play (HTC One Google Edition, Galaxy S 4 Google Edition). Of course, you know what that means: It’s only a matter of time before we see the stock Google Experience software ported to their more traditional sibling devices.

Until the ports are available and more than likely aiding in the process of bringing the software over, we have kernel source for at least the HTC One Google Play Edition. The GPL-compliant kernel source code for the device was officially released via HTCDev.

Similarly, a new download recently appeared on Samsung’s Open Source Release Center for the “GT-I9505G.” It is unverified as of this time whether this mysterious model is indeed the Google Play edition of the S 4 or just another variant. However, given the coincident timing with the retail availability, we are confident that this is likely the Google Play edition of the Galaxy S 4.

To download the source code for the recently released HTC One Google Play Edition, head over to HTCDev (direct link). To investigate further on this mysterious GT-I9505G, head over to the Samsung Open Source Release Center and give it a download. If you find out anything regarding the I9505G, let us know in the comments. And as always, you can continue the discussion and share your development work  in the HTC One and Samsung Galaxy S 4 forums.

The Witcher Battle Arena: Hectic Multiplayer MOBA Fun

Do you like MOBAs? Do you like gaming on your phone? Given that MOBAs (multi player battle arenas) have amassed millions upon millions of players, there's a chance you play LoL or DOTA. And here at XDA we love phones, and we spend a lot of time on them, so if you were to like gaming outside of smartphones you probably like some on them too. I personally like neither, and I simply download the latest 3D games to see the progression...

LG G4 Could Feature a… 3K Display?

According to myLGphones, a version of the LG G4 will not feature neither a 2K nor a 4K display - but 3K. If you are anything like me, your reaction to this news will be confusion. While we don't have many details about the sources of this leak, it has apparently been confirmed true by a poster at hardare.fr that gave some more details on model names for each version of the upcoming LG flagship. However, these leaks don't point towards all G4...
