SAN FRANCISCO —

Google is adding the recently released HTC One to its lineup of smartphones running on an unmodified version of its latest Android software.

An HTC One model relying on the same version of Android as Google's Nexus brand will go on sale on June 26 for $599. That's the same day Google Inc. will start selling a Samsung Galaxy 4S that runs on a pure version of Android for $649.

Most consumers have been paying about $200 for the HTC One and Galaxy 4S since their April release. Wireless carriers subsidize the smartphones in return for a two-year contract commitment.

Google's phone sales aren't tied to any wireless carrier. The devices are aimed at people who don't like the revisions that HTC and Samsung made to the Android.
